While ending things with Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey found a new vision of love with billionaire businessman James Packer. A divorce and seven months later Carey was engaged to the investor and philanthropist in Jan. 2016.
Sadly, after a nine-month engagement the new chapter in her life didn’t last long as Packer and Carey are putting a break on their nuptials.
This comes as Us Weekly reports that the couple hadn’t seen each other for a month after Carey failed to show up to Packer’s birthday party in Greece.
Since then, Carey has been seen with ex-husband Cannon and their twins for a Halloween party. The breakup also explains why Mariah Carey canceled the South American leg of her tour.
Many cite Carey’s extravagant lifestyle and her new dalliance with becoming a reality television star as the main points of contention for the separation.
The still married Australian businessman is known for being ultra private and Carey’s lavish ways and lack of a relationship with his family made him question if marrying the songstress was the right move.
However, friends of Carey say that Packer’s “behavior” and him not being “mentally healthy,” and therefore not present in their partnership was a contributing factor according to E! News.
A press release by Packer and Carey acknowledging the state of their relationship is on the horizon. While the two are putting a pause on getting married, friends from both camps say that they are both open to reuniting in the future if they can find a way to get to a better place according to Women’s Day.
