Remember those pesky rumors about Mariah Carey being a “nightmare to work with” during her time mentoring American Idol?

One Idol alum who was around during Mariah’s time on Season 7 has taken it upon herself to refute them altogether.

Carly Smithson, who finished in sixth place for Idol’s seventh season, responded to the rumors about Mariah on Twitter, writing “Just read … reports that Mariah Carey was a nightmare while on season 7 of @AmericanIdol. - not true people !!”

It’s good to hear someone speak up for MC!
