Mimi’s about to be paid! R&B/Pop diva, Mariah Carey, wanted upwards of $50 million from James Packer when he decided he wanted out and called off the engagement in October 2016. James didn’t mind Mariah’s close relationship with ex-husband, Nick Cannon. That was to be expected, after all, Mariah and Nick are parents to 6-year old twins, Morroco and Monroe. What James said to have left a bad taste in his mouth was the couple’s lack of privacy, Mariah’s over-spending, and over the top, close relationship with back-up dancer, Bryan Tanaka. Bryan and Mariah have been linked together for years. Bryan even disclosed how much it hurt him to watch Mariah and James on Mariah’s reality series, “Mariah’s World”.
Mariah came back and said the cause of the break-up was due to James doing some undisclosed awful thing to her assistant while on a yacht in Greece. She also said another reason was because she had to uproot her children and move with them to be with James.
But don’t worry about Mimi. Though she didn’t get the $50 mil she asked for, she is walking away somewhere between a cool $5 to $10 million for her pain and suffering. The Blast.com reported the settlement was actually reached a couple of months ago.
In addition, the diva also gets to keep that extremely large diamond engagement ring James gave her. She’s been spotted wearing the ring, valued at just under $10 million, even though the engagement has been over for over a year.
