Earlier today, we saw Rihanna on Good Morning America recalling her assault at the hands of Chris Brown, and how difficult it was for her to break the cycle.
Asked about Rihanna last night on Larry King Live, Mariah Carey admitted she's faced her own difficult relationships, and that "abuse has several categories."
"[I have been abused] Emotionally, mentally," Mariah said in response to King's query of whether she had ever faced a situation similar to that of Rihanna.
Not unlike her battered counterpart, Carey says the hardest part was breaking free from ex-husband Tommy Mottola, whom she doesn't mention by name.

"You get into a situation and you feel locked in," she said.
"For me, to really get out was extremely difficult because there was connection that was not only a marriage, but a business thing where the person was completely in control of my life. I was in a situation where I wasn't let out of the house."
When asked for her thoughts on Rihanna's struggles, she reacts the way many of us have: "Yikes," she says, "I can't even imagine what she went through."
Carey isn't the only one to broach the topic of emotional abuse lately.
Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselin's now-ex-girlfriend, made a similar allegeation against the d-bag around the time of their split. It's not something to take lightly.
