Mariah Carey is mulling pulling out of a scheduled concert in Brussels set for this Sunday.

Pop star Mariah Carey is under pressure to pull out of a scheduled concert in Brussels in the wake of the horrific terror bombings that struck the European city Tuesday.

Carey’s security team is “strongly against” allowing the “We Belong Together” crooner to perform at the Forest National arena as planned because she would be a high-profile target for another ISIS attack , TMZ is reporting.

Sources told the gossip site that her management was still waiting for guidance from the U.S. Embassy in Belgium, but it’s unclear if local airports will be open in time to allow transit to Sunday’s concert anyway.

The show is a big deal to Carey since Sunday marks her 46th birthday, but there are bigger concerns.

A terrminal at Brussels Airport fills with smoke after explosions Tuesday.

At least 34 people were killed after suicide bombers detonated themselves at the city’s international airport and a subway station.

The attacks come just four days after Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in the Paris terror rampage last November, was arrested in the Belgian capital.

Carey’s European rep has yet to respond to a Daily News request for comment. The singer is currently in London preparing for a show on Wednesday at the famed O2 Arena.
