MARIAH CAREY SHOPPING FOR BABY NURSERY?
Mariah Carey is not pregnant, but has reportedly spent $200,000 on baby furniture in preparation for a little bundle of joy someday.
According to the New York Daily News, the songbird got her shop on at a children's store in San Francisco for the new Hollywood home she intends to buy with husband Nick Cannon. Among the items she allegedly purchased were a pink crib and highchair.
Contacted for comment, a rep for Carey would only say of the story, "not true."
As previously reported, the Daily News quoted sources close to the singer who claimed she made an offer on the David Saperstein estate in the exclusive western L.A. neighborhood of Holmby Hills. Her neighbors would be the Beckhams and Hugh Hefner.
"It's 45,000 square feet and looks like a European castle," says the insider. "It's so big, it can't even be called a mansion - it's similar to Buckingham Palace!"
Carey is said to be putting in a few touches of her own, most notably the nursery. Says the source, "She has asked [interior decorator] Kenneth Bordewick to advise on her new home and has requested an all-pink nursery. It's going to be over the top."
Despite alleged plans for the baby room, there is no indication that the singer is pregnant. But an insider tells the paper, "Mariah has tossed around the idea of adopting."
