Mariah Carey has tried to dispel rumors that her vocals are not what they used to be.

After leaked isolated vocals of her performance of All I Want for Christmas Is You during the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, Carey has tried  bring her ‘A’ game to every performance since then.

But rumors are circulating that there may be a reason for the turnaround with her vocals. And it might not be a good thing. Sources allegedly close to Carey claims she may be headed towards an addiction to codeine cough syrup.

Star Magazine reports:

Star has learned that Mariah Carey has been turning to codenine cough syrup to shore up her cherished five-octave vocal range, the faltering of which was made painfully clear by leaked isolated vocals of her performance of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” during the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.

Understandably, Mariah consulted throat experts, who recommended total voice rest. The problem: Mariah is a chatty diva and couldn’t bear not talking to her kids or refraining from ordering her staff around. So her voice got worse, and she begged doctors for syrup scrip.

“Mariah’s team was adamantly against it, worried she’d develop a problem,” says a close insider of the singer.

“Needless to say just days after receiving a prescription Mariah had her people call a doctor to say she lost her prescription and needed another one. The truth is, she didn’t lose her prescription. She’d already drank all the syrup and wanted more!”

Mariah’s loved ones are scared that the cough syrup, compounded with alcohol and work pressure, could harm her.

This latest news come on the heels of Carey caught lip-syncing her single Fantasy during her performance at the 2015 Jazz And Blues Festival in Jamaica on Friday.
