Mariah Carey's great-aunt gift

Mariah Carey has bought her great-aunt a house.

The 'Touch My Body' singer decided to purchase the San Miguel, Venezuela, property after her relative fell behind on her rental payments.

The 67-year-old woman owed $1,500 in unpaid rent and so asked Mariah for help.

When the 38-year-old singer heard of her aunt's plight, she immediately paid off the debt and also bought her the two-bedroom house.

It has previously been claimed Mariah - who wed Nick Cannon in an intimate ceremony earlier this year after a whirlwind romance - is very careful with her money.

The singer reportedly called off her second wedding to Nick after the pair struggled to get it funded by a magazine deal.

She was keen to host a lavish service for friends and family who missed her original Bahamas ceremony, but when it became apparent no publications were interested in paying for the bash she decided to ditch her plans.

A source said at the time: "The small wedding in the Bahamas was nice, but it was not Mariah's style. However, she wasn't too keen to pay for a more lavish celebration herself."
