Mariah Carey's yacht getaway was interrupted by her encounter with the beast of the deep blue sea — and she is upset!
The singer, who is enjoying a break from her Las Vegas residency with her twins, Monroe and Moroccan, documented the whole thing on video when she noticed a large shark swimming too close to her boat.
"Okay, this is not okay," the wetsuited songbird says in the clip she shared to Instagram on Friday (August 17), in which the predator can be seen beneath the waves before turning out of the cruiser's direction. “I know it’s a shark and I’m not supposed to be scared, but I’m scared — I’m upset. He's huge!"
Offering the superstar some much-needed relief, the shark in question, as one of Carey's followers pointed out, was likely a nurse shark — a virtually inoffensive species that are mostly harmless.
While "We Belong Together" icon has been voyaging the tropics until her "Butterfly Returns" shows recommence in Vegas on August 31, we can't imagine swimming with sharks was on Carey's R&R itinerary. Thankfully, peace must have been restored again — guessing by the chanteuse's latest Instagram since the scare, she's having a good time "admiring the sunset."
