    In a letter to his fans, Tyler Perry admits that he was caught off
    guard by Mariah Carey's sudden withdrawal from his latest film,'For
    Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf,'
    while also adding that Thandie Newton, Michael Ealy, and Tessa
    Thompson have been included to the cast.

    "I'm there on vacation, celebrating life, thanking God and just
    relaxing when I get a message that I have to come home, that Mariah
    has dropped out of the film! I said "What? You're kidding? It's five
    she has to go to work, nobody does that. We have a deal. IT'S FIVE
    DAYS BEFORE SHE IS SUPPOSED TO GO TO WORK! So, I got on the plane and
    came home and started trying to re-cast this major role in the film."

    "I land and get to the studio, and I'm like, what happened? I was told
    that we got a call, saying that even though our deal was done, she had
    been advised by her doctor not to do the film. I said "What? You know
    I want a doctor's note, don't you?!"...LOL," states Perry.

    While widespread speculation is that Carey is pregnant, neither the
    singer or her husband Nick Cannon have confirmed such report.

    "But to tell you the truth, I don't know what that means and, unlike
    the tabloids, I won't speculate. All I know is that I'm waiting just
    like the rest of the world to find out what happened."

    Perry goes to say that he hopes the best for Mariah, "In spite of
    this, what you need to know is that I am a huge Mariah Carey fan and
    always will be. What I do know of the woman is that she is a
    professional and wouldn't back out of a deal unless it was a major
    issue. So, whatever is going on, I wish her and Nick the best, and she
    has all my love, prayers and support. I just wish I could have
    finished my Mai Tai before I had to get back and re-cast this role!"

    In the meantime, filming is underway in New York City with Tyler
    releasing more names to the cast.

    "Anyway, I wanted to announce the official cast, baring anymore doctor
    surprises, : here they are: Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Loretta
    Devine, Anika Noni Rose, Thandie Newton, Kimberly Elise, Kerry
    Washington, Phylicia Rashad, Macy Gray, Tessa Thompson, Michael Ealy,
    Hill Harper, Khalil Kain, Omari Hardwick and Richard Lawson."

    Unless they have minor roles in the film, left out were Isaiah
    Mustafa, who was given a spot by Perry on the Oprah Winfrey show, and
    Jurnee Smollett, who was mentioned by Perry at the premiere of his
    last film, 'Why Did I Get Married Too?.'
