Carey had crowned Darlene the “Queen of Christmas” after months of trying to earn the title for herself.
Darlene’s rep explained that the shout out prompted an unexpected and immediate response from people
They had ultimately sold out all the 11 shows that the singer was selling.
Mariah had applied for the QOC title in March, but it only became public knowledge in July.
The news caused a reaction from another Christmas singing queen Elizabeth Chan.
The singer claimed that Christmas belonged to everybody so nobody should attempt monopolizing it.
Darlene had immediately weighed in on the QOC drama claiming that the title could be hers.
Her reason for saying that was that David Letterman had crowned her the QOC 29 years ago.
Carey reportedly lost the bidding.
