Mariah Carey has been photographed being dried off by two assistants after she swam in the Mediterranean Sea.

The 'Touch My Body' singer, who has a reputation for being a diva, enjoyed a peaceful swim on her second honeymoon with husband Nick Cannon off the island of Capri.

As she emerged from the water, Mariah was quickly met by two assistants bearing towels, who then proceeded to ensure she was completely dry by rubbing her all over.

A source said: "Mariah looked in absolute heaven as she was dried off. She just held out her arms to her side and let the assistants get rid of any water remaining on her body."

Mariah, 38, has previously revealed she likes being called a diva because it means she is successful.

She said: "They throw that word around like it's a Frisbee! I grew up hearing it, because my mother is an opera singer. The actual definition is 'a talented female singer'. Definition two is 'a difficult woman who is successful,' I believe. So I take it as a compliment."

Despite her reputation, Mariah insists she doesn't make enough demands.

The 38-year-old star said: "You know what? I guess I am a diva in many ways! When it comes to certain things, yes, I can be difficult and a little bit rigid about what I want. Am I demanding? I don't think I'm demanding enough."
