Huebel said that Carey was "four hours late" to set for the one day she was scheduled to shoot and that she demanded her trailer be filled with "all white roses" and "stuffed lambs" (see tweet below), because that's what Carey's fans call themselves.
According to Huebel, Carey was paid quite well to perform only one song, which she decided the day of the shoot she no longer wanted to sing.
Carey's appearance in the movie was also coupled with a scene in which the singer was to be shot and killed, but Carey took issue with the script -- after agreeing to play the part.
"She was like, 'I don't want that. I don't feel like my character would get killed by bullets. Like, what if I deflected them like Wonder Woman?'" Huebel said Carey suggested. "They were like, 'Mariah, we don't have time for... You're getting paid so much money. We have you for like one day. We don't have time to argue with you. Just do it.'"
Huebel said he didn't know if her part would be cut from the movie, but said, "Just know if you see her, oh, they had to work for it."
"The House," which hits theaters June 30, follows the story of two parents (Ferrell and Poehler) who start an illegal casino in their basement after spending their daughter's college fund.
