MARIAH CAREY is this morning reported to have attempted suicide before she was admitted to a NEW YORK hospital suffering from depression last week.

According to The Sun newspaper today (August 1), the singer attempted to cut herself and was rushed to hospital last Wednesday (July 25). The newspaper also claims that she told friends she wanted to end her life.

A friend is quoted as saying: “Mariah was gutted when her relationship with [boyfriend] Luis [Miguel] broke down after three years. She didn’t realise how hard it had hit her until it was too late.”

As previously reported on NME.COM, she was admitted to a hospital suffering from extreme exhaustion last week.

A message apparently from the singer was posted on her website saying: “Basically, all I really wanna say is I don’t know what’s going on with my life. But I just can’t trust anybody any more. I’m desperately trying to get out of this room. I’m gonna be taking some time off.” The message has, however, now been removed.
