That was a close one. Fortunately, singer Mariah Carey has proudly defended the honor of her unique name.
The narrow-minded star has successfully sued porn star Mary Carey in order to halt the use of her similar sounding name. A judge has decided the naked wonder - born as Mary Ellen Cook - may no longer go by the moniker that jump started her sex-crazed career in 2002.
And not a second too soon, either!
Fans across the globe were constantly confusing the washed up singer who can't possibly compete with Britney Spears for attention with the pornographic actress that ran against Arnold Schwarzenegger for governor.
The lawsuit was almost as logical as the recent age discrimination case brought against Donald Trump and The Apprentice.
There are no reports, however, of Mariah taking Eminem to court over allegations that her boned her rotten. We think we know why.
