'As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised account and are currently investigating the situation,' the company said.

The past between the One Sweet Day songstress and Eminem was back in the headlines earlier this month when her ex-husband Nick Cannon, 39, and the Detroit rapper exchanged diss tracks rehashing their past problems.

Hacking aside, it's been a fantastic week for Mariah, who's mom to eight-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Cannon, as the success of her holiday hit All I Want for Christmas Is You buoyed her to become the first-ever performer to score singles that hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list over four decades - the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.
