Legendary US baseball player Derek Jeter was only the second person Mariah Carey had ever slept with, when she was 27 years old.

The Fantasy singer reveals that nugget in her just-released memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, adding that the first time they slept together at his house in Tampa, his sister Sharlee was also there, so “basically it was an eighth-grade event”.

Before Jeter, Mariah had only ever slept with first husband Tommy Mottola, who she married when she was 24.

Yankees player Jeter, 46, had a longtime crush on Carey, 50, hanging her posters in his bedroom as a teen, and even had a game plan to marry her.

“‘I had this plan,’ he told me. ‘I was going to come to New York. I was going to get on the Yankees. I was going to meet you, and I was going to steal you away from Tony Sony’ – his name for Tommy (Mottola, Carey’s first husband) – ‘and then we were going to get married.’”

The couple dated from 1997 to 1998, yet it was an enormously important relationship for Carey, who was coming off an allegedly emotionally abusive and controlling marriage to music exec Mottola.

“It was so sensual,” Carey writes of their time together. “Everything was so new and sweet, down to the smooth texture of his honey-dropped skin … It was so heady, so intoxicating, and I was so vulnerable. I was in touch with a fire I didn’t know I had inside.”

Carey calls her time with Jeter “a short and sweet dream”.

Jeter, who went on to date Minka Kelly, Adriana Lima and Jessica Alba, is now married to model Hannah Davis, with whom he has two daughters. Carey was married to Nick Cannon from 2008 to 2016. They are parents to nine-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
