Australian billionaire James Packer dumped songbird Mariah Carey, according to multiple reports. Word has it that Packer grew tired of Mariah’s self-centered attitude. And her reality show to document their fairy tale wedding didn’t help matters either.
It’s a good thing the dopamine faded before they tied the knot.
“It’s all over,” a source said. “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.”
Page Six — Another source of tension for the couple was that the five-time Grammy winner reportedly refused to support Packer at his sister Gretel’s 50th birthday party in Sydney, Australia, earlier this year, and Packer’s mother, Ros Packer, didn’t get along well with Carey.
Amid the news of a possible split, Carey canceled her upcoming South American tour dates, citing the reason as promoter negligence. “Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be cancelled,” she tweeted on Tuesday, October 25. “My fans deserve better than how some of these promoters treated them.”In a recent interview, director Lee Daniels commented on Mariah’s reality show.
Daniels compared Carey’s current situation to the late Whitney Houston whose reality TV show with then-husband, Bobby Brown, was disastrous for her public image.
“Someone of Mariah’s stature should not be doing this. Whitney Houston did a reality show and that was the real end of it. We hope that it doesn’t end up being like when Whitney did ‘Being Bobby Brown.'”
