James Packer And Mariah Carey Have Split

Mariah-Carey-James

James Packer has allegedly dumped his fiancé Mariah Carey.

‘Woman’s Day’ is quoting a “close family friend” of the Australian billionaire who confirmed the split after alleging they fell out over her lavish spending and upcoming reality TV show, ‘Mariah’s World’ allowing her to keep the 35-carat $10m diamond engagement ring he gave her in January.

“It’s all over,” confirms one close family friend.

“James had huge reservations about Mariah’s new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.”

The magazine also reports that Carey, 46, created tension between the Packer family when she “refused to attend James’s sister Gretel’s 50th birthday in Sydney earlier this year, and his mother, society matriarch Ros Packer, struggled to connect with the singer.”

“When she refused to come to Australia for Gretel’s birthday party it created a lot of tension in the family. His mum hated to even hear her name mentioned, and James’ tight circle of friends never really thought they would marry,” the source said.

James and Mariah got engaged in January after a whirlwind romance.

The former happy couple were together less than a year before making the commitment to marry.
