Security experts say one of the cardinal sins in their field is allowing unauthorized persons to get too close to the person they are protecting. Mariah Carey's bodyguards displayed an inexcusable lapse in security after they allowed a random fan to touch the Diva.

The fan not only touched Mariah but he also ran his hand through her weave as she and rumored boyfriend Bryan Tanaka left Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills on Monday.

The man squeezed through her security and got right up next to Carey who remained calm and forced a smile as Bryan pushed the man away.

The 47-year-old songbird is reportedly furious, and she is looking to replace her entire security team.

"When a star on Mariah's level pays thousands of dollars a day for security, this is unforgivable," said an insider. "What if the man had a knife or a gun? We would be grieving the loss of another superstar."

    He could have helped carry her big azz across the stage in that other post since he wants to get to close

  • Pamela

    Mariah doesn't look fazed in these pictures. She alright.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah, hes real close. I'm not even a celebrity and I wouldn't want him that close to me.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    She need to be furious about this shit. I am.

    I bet Mariah couldn't feel his hand with all of that bloat.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Well Riah at least your boytoy, I mean your MAN was there to protect you. (as he should also)

  • Phillybruh

    What won't she do to keep her name in the news.

  • Renee26

    He look like he stinks too...Eww (in Nicki's voice)

  • Renee26

    Ohhh, so she wasn't being hoisted up in that pic..it was really a lean back...Chile they got a whole article saying 285 pound Mariah can't be held up by her dancers LMAO

  • Please Stop The Madness

    She cant be. She a bigun

  • Jennifer

    She should line them up single file, hand them each a pink slip, and slap the shit out of them one by one. Im basically giving you money to have the privledge of living a fabulous life and you can't even keep a bum off my back?

  • Renee26

    An outta shape lush...she didn't even sound good. She could really blow back in the day

  • imright

    everyone would fired IMMEDIATELY

  • ?Royalty?

    Fire everybody.
    Why is Mariah so plump?
    I really wish she never straightened her hair. It diminished her somehow.
    Vision of Love is still my ish.

  • ?Royalty?

    LOL!

  • Renee26

    Wine and pills

  • ?Royalty?

    *Looks at wine glass.
    Puts the wine back on the shelf. *

  • Noirluv45

    I was just gonna say the same thing!

  • Lisa daniels

    Nobody wants to kidnap Mariah's crazy ass. She would be more trouble than her weight in gold. She would be ordering her kidnapper to bring her champagne and saying she only wears Channel.

  • Ms..N

    Lmao not a bum off my back...

  • Renee26

    Lol

  • Renee26

    and bathes in Perrier water

  • Lisa daniels

    That kidnapper would call 911 on his damn self. Like f that.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I agree, liquor has sabotaged many of my healthy routines. She's probably killing a bottle of wine a night.

    If her security didn't have to help her walk... maybe they can spend more time doing other things.

    I think the tour insurance prohibits them from hoisting her up for safety reasons - theirs and hers. ?

  • Vonn

    Look at his gnarly dry cement looking hands. He looks like he has bed bugs.

  • TheWildChild

    You know what ? Mariah should've smelled the Newports & Ripple on his breath, she seems to be highly sedated lately in all her appearances. Something is quite off with her. There's a Meme of her barely moving & holding the Mic, it's captioned: "when you do the absolutely bare minimum at work" ?

  • HalleMerry

    Has Mariah had the exact same hairstyle since 1996?

  • TheWildChild

    Yeah, but she seems rather off to me, like she's on a sedative. At one point she couldn't hold the Mic....

  • teather

    lol! yes, but haven't all these women. The part in the middle with the hair hanging on either side? I told my friend Val a long time ago that this style is played and too much. What happened to creativity and real stylists?? Come up with something different. I guess this is the go to weave whacker!

  • teather

    They're all fired. Lucky I'm not Mariah. That guy coulda killed her! WTF?! He went through her hair and stuff. I don't care that it's not hers. EWWW!!

    Maybe Mariah's eating habits are impacting her security budget. Maybe this is all she can afford. ?

  • ramosyo

  • Renee26

  • Miany

  • Jen_no_juice

    ????????????????

  • Miany

    I aint the first to say it but.. Mariah needs to gone and fire the "manager" her azz seem like a mooch who would prop Mariah up on stage just to get tour money.. Mariah dont need to be on NOBODY tour if she needs a bodyguard to skoot her across the stage. She aint broke to be whooorin out her legacy this way.. SHAMEFUL.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I just watched it, does she not realize how she looks or just not care or what I wonder? And put on something more flattering please. And this is coming from a fan.

  • IntroSpective

    At least she smiled through it. Not many would have handled that situation with so much grace.

  • darealwifey

    Mariah is mentally and emotionally fragile. This Brian Tanaka guy is bad news for her.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yeah. I would be upset. Seriously. People are sick in the mind.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    The way my OCD is setup..... I would have died, So I already know her extra axx showed out behind closed doors.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I think she has had the exact same style since 96! She hasn't adjusted to her new weight, shape or nothin' Lord Jesus.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

  • Yen Chantress

    That spot on her arm, where his nail touched, needs to be examined. His nails look....

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Why is she dressed like that?
    Why is HE dressed like that??

  • Legacy

    Them nails though!!! Yuck!! She could prob feel his stank breathe on her neck. Yuck!!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Mariah doesn't like to be touched by "the common people" so I'm sure she's livid. Her weave looks matted by the way.

    And he almost grabbed a hand full of that flabby ass of hers too.

  • NIA

    OMG! he could have killed her... FIRE the body guard WTF! stinky ass man ...

  • NeverSurprised

    Glad she's ok. No one wants another John Lennon situation.

    Now, on to something far more important: WHY can't Mariah buy
    just ONE garment that FITS? Every seam is always screaming to break free.

  • NeverSurprised

    ?????????

  • Lisa daniels

    Who really want to put with that ? You see Nick got the hell on.

  • dontgetblocked

    He was like "I'm going to get me some of that Big Yella."

  • dontgetblocked

    Lord, I just saw his nail. All kind of discolored from fungus. I would insist on taking antibiotics.

  • dontgetblocked

    Not the Newports....lol

  • pure_rachet

  • suganspice68

    He was extremely thirsty to touch Mariah

  • suganspice68

    Lol

  • The Chosen One

    Please and have you forgotten. She is black. What you said, is a FAR stretch from the truth.

  • The Chosen One

    I have seen a better body on a wrecked car.

  • TOO REAL

    Security wants to get away from her. They are screaming please fire me.

  • TOO REAL

    Maybe better than some but please don't say most. I have no idea what state you live in but you must live somewhere near Amber Rose.

  • Kevin Johnson

    You mean like going places and doing things like other celebrities?

  • On the radar….

    Like one or two sizes too small!

  • On the radar….

    Could be a beer gut or something. She loves her alcohol.

  • Zander Sky

    I fear Mariah is on the same self destructive spiral as Whitney. I wish her god mother Patti LaBelle will stage an intervention before it's too late.

  • Zander Sky

    Everyone knows that but TR0LLS like to Troll.
