Mariah's love in the fast lane
13:30 06 April 2005
Mariah Carey is reportedly romancing Naomi Campbell's ex, Flavio Briatore.
The sexy singer was said to be "delighted" when the Formula One boss organised a romantic weekend away on his yacht, The Mariah, last week to celebrate her 35th birthday.
A source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Flavio wanted to give Mariah the best birthday present possible and is aware that she has been working so hard promoting her new album.
"So what better way to relax than on board his yacht in Monaco? Mariah loves the place and hides away there as often as possible."
Friends say Mariah, who recently admitted she was sexually inexperienced, is now smitten with Flavio - who has a baby daughter with ex-girlfriend Heidi Klum.
Meanwhile, Mariah, who denies claims she's a diva, has admitted she no longer drives - because she gets distracted by putting on lip gloss.
The blonde beauty told Britain's Now magazine: "I don't drive any more because I was always distracted re-tuning the radio to another station and putting on lip gloss. I last drove about four years ago."
