5 Stars With Ridiculous Staff Demands: Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Kanye West & More
Celebrities are known for their insane and preposterous demands, but then again, money is power right?!
On Thursday morning, an old letter from Steve Harvey to his Chicago staff was leaked with a list of shocking demands. In the leaked memo, the television host demanded his staff to not approach him, leave him alone in the hallways and to not enter his dressing room unless invited.
Harvey, however, is not the only A list star to have a list of ridiculous rules. Here are five other stars known for their diva ways.
Jennifer Lopez: Reports surfaced back in 2012 that Jenny from the Block was adamant about staff not looking her in the eyes. At the time, it was suggested that the singer banned the people working on her new San Fernando Valley CA home from talking to or making eye contact with her.
A source told The Daily Star, “She has made it clear that if any of the contractors, drivers or domestic help made eye contact or speak to her she will not be impressed.”
Mariah Carey: It’s no secret that Mariah Carey is a diva, after all, she wears ball gowns everywhere. But one reporter from the UK unveiled one of Carey’s most diva moments when she arrived to promote her film, Precious. According to host, Kate Garraway, Carey was lowered onto the couch on set by ITV producers so that she wouldn’t crinkle her dress.
Oh and get this, she also brought her own toilet paper to the set.
Kanye West: Yeezy does think of himself as a God, so it’s not exactly shocking that he expects red carpet treatment on the regular. According to one report in 2013, Ye requested his dressing room carpet be ironed by an assistant so that it wouldn’t be “too bumpy.”
Justin Bieber: The Biebs picked up a pretty big diva reputation early on, but according to one report in 2013, he requested no Selena Gomez music not be played on any sets. Gomez and Justin dated for years before one of their many splits in 2012. JB also reportedly wrote in the contract for that particular shoot that nobody speak or look at him.
Adele: And who knew! Adele … a diva??? According to reports, the British singer has quite the demands. One major request was unveiled back in 2016 during her stay at the Oxfordshire hotel Soho Farmhouse. While cooped up in her hotel room with her husband Simon Konecki and three-year old son Angelo, the diva requested room service, but not from the hotel restaurant. Apparently, she sent hotel staff on 140-mile trip at 11 pm to pick up pizza from a joint in Kensington. The catch … she didn’t even eat it.
