R+B beauty Mariah Carey is so terrified of catching something from her fans - she scrubs her hands with wet wipes every time she touches an admirer.

The HONEY singer has offended her fans, by confessing she refuses to meet them unless she has a supply of moist tissues to cleanse herself after they have come into contact with her.

She says, "It is really essential, because I can't get germs. I've touched a lot of fans outside."
