Mariah Hosts Second Wedding

TRUE MARIAH CAREY and new husband NICK CANNON reportedly celebrated their nuptials at a star-studded post-wedding party at the weekend, thanks to her record boss ANTONIO 'L.A.' REID.

The couple wed in the Bahamas in April after a six-week whirlwind romance, and have reportedly been desperate to celebrate their union with a lavish ceremony.

And Carey's post-wedding fantasy was finally realised after Def Jam Records chairman Reid put together the party at his Long Island, New York home on Saturday, according to the New York Post.

A source tells the newspaper Reid "did it up" for the star, hiring a massive team to co-ordinate the event.

The extravagant celebrations were so exuberant, Carey's rowdy celebrity guests - including Gwyneth Paltrow, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Ripa, Samuel L.

Jackson and Star Jones - allegedly prompted a call to police after neighbours complained of noise when the party passed midnight.

Cannon and Carey are reportedly continuing their own celebration, spending the remainder of the week at a farm in East Hampton, New York, that they have rented for US$125,000.
