Mariah Carey hit with $20M lawsuit.

The Queen of Christmas, Mariah Carey, isn’t having a very merry start to the summer.

In documents acquired by The Post, Andy Stone, who co-wrote Vince Vance & the Valiants’ country song “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” is suing Carey for copyright infringement 

Claiming the diva never sought or obtained use of his title for her perennial monster holiday hit.

Stone is also coming after Carey’s co-writer on the song, Walter Afanasieff, in the civil suit, which was filed in the US District Court of the Eastern District of Louisiana.

Stone released his 1989 twangy version — which musically and lyrically sounds nothing like Carey’s pop performance — before Carey changed the holiday season forever in 1994.

In the suit, he claims his song got extensive airplay during the 1993 holiday season, a year before Carey released hers.

The Scrooge is suing the “Obsessed” singer for $20 million in damages.

“Plaintiff [Stone] personally requested that Defendants [Carey and Afanasieff] cease and desist from further distribution of Plaintiff’s work,” the suit reads in part.

“Despite Plaintiff’s request, Defendants continue to exploit Plaintiff’s work ‘All I Want for Christmas is You,’

Reaping tremendous financial awards and other pecuniary benefits to the detriment of Plaintiff.”
