*Mariah Carey, the lone past judge not to appear on Thursday’s “American Idol” sendoff, has reportedly secured an eight-digit insurance policy on two body parts: her voice and her legs.
According to TMZ, the singer took out a $35 million insurance policy for her voice, and another $35 million policy for her legs, assuring she will be compensated should something go horribly wrong with either during the rest of her Sweet Sweet Fantasy world tour.
The monthly premium is said to cost thousands of dollars.
Carey joins a list of celebs who have insured portions of their bodies that have made them famous. According to reports, Julia Roberts insured her smile for $30 million, Tina Turner insured her legs for $3.2 million and Jennifer Lopez insured her derriere for $300,000.
Elsewhere in Mimi-land, there are conflicting reports regarding the location of her wedding to billionaire James Packer. Page Six has it in Tahiti with an assist from Packer’s 287-foot super yacht Arctic P. But TMZ reports the wedding will take place on the exclusive island of Barbuda and involve only 50 guests.
“I’ve picked a lot of things that I can’t tell,” Carey has since teased. “It’s not going to be a big wedding, but it’s going to be grand . . . I’m most excited about the grandeur, darling.”
