Mariah Carey has reportedly been dumped by her billionaire fiancé, James Packer, after a disagreement about her extravagant spending habits and new reality show.
According to Woman’s Day, the Australian businessman left the 46-year-old singer after falling out over her plans to expose their lifestyle on her new reality show, Mariah’s World.
“It’s all over,” a family friend alleged. “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 site states that 49-year-old James allowed Mariah to keep the $10 million diamond engagement ring her gave her in January this year after a whirlwind romance.
Those close to the Packer family are said to be unsurprised by the news as they have reportedly had reservations about the relationship since its inception last year.
A source said: “James is very generous but Mariah takes it to the next level.”
“When she refused to come to Australia for [James’ sister’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.”
Mariah cancelled most of her South American tour earlier this week.
