Mansion Mariah Once Shared With Mottola Burns Down

In what brings a bit of ironic closure, the mansion that Mariah Carey and her ex-husband, Sony Music head Tommy Mottola, built in the mid-90s was reportedly gutted by fire over the weekend.

The Associated Press reports that the home, which Mottola sold in 1998 after his divorce from Carey, was empty when the fire began on Saturday, and that no one was injured in the incident.

Authorities reportedly believe the fire was accidental.

Mottola and Carey reportedly had the nine-bedroom home built to their specifications in the mid-90s on 56 acres in Bedford, New York. Mottola then sold the mansion to Arby's/Royal Crown Cola/Snapple mogul Nelson Peltz for a reported $20.5 million in 1998 after Mottola and Carey divorced.
