‘Extravagant’ Mariah Carey gets dumped by her billionaire fiancé
American singer, songwriter and record producer has been jilted by her billionaire fiancé James Packer, nine months after their engagement, the Daily Mail has reported.
According to reports in the English paper, Packer has left Carey because of her “extravagant spending” coupled with a fall out over the singer’s new reality TV show, Mariah’s World.
The Daily Mail further reported that a family friend confirmed the news, this week saying; “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.”
However, reports indicate that the pop star will not be walking away empty handed. Apparently, James has allowed her to keep a US$10 million engagement ring.
The American songbird has twice been married and divorced. In 2008 she got married to actor Nick Cannon with whom they have four year old twins Moroccon and Monroe. The couple divorced in 2014.
Before meeting Cannon, her five-year of marriage to Tommy Mottola ended in divorce in 1998.
