Music and movie industry insiders are starting to run out of patience with Mariah Carey's physical breakdown. The Los Angeles Daily News claims Carey's breakdown so close to the release of her CD and film Glitter has upset many people who work with her. Carey is currently in UCLA Medical Center - last month she underwent treatment for a breakdown in New York. One insider says, "She might get a sympathy vote, but this is a business and everyone wants to back a winner; she no longer looks like a winner." Insiders blame Carey's breakdown on the disappointing sales of her single Loverboy. The insider says, "She's been on a incredible roll but then the single didn't do well, there was bad buzz on the movie. There's a lot of resentment towards Mariah in the industry. Here is an artist who made it big with scant touring - there's a feeling she got a bit of a free pass because her ex-husband, Tommy Mottola, was the head of a record company."
