Mariah Carey Talks About James Packer Split: It Happened For ‘A Reason’ — Watch


Mariah Carey opened up in a new interview about her split from fiancé James Packer, revealing that the heartbreak is still fresh. While the breakup is ‘difficult,’ Mariah said it totally happened for a reason!

Ellen DeGeneres, TK, had Mariah Carey, 46, on her November 23 show for a pre-Thanksgiving chat about “celebrating life and wearing diamonds,” as Mariah put it. During their conversation, she managed to sneak in some questions about Mariah’s devastating end to her engagement with James Packer, 49.

Ellen asked Mariah about the episode of her docu-series in which she was trying on wedding dresses. “We see the behind the scenes of that, which is pretty personal. And now you’re not together anymore,” Ellen says. “And now it’s a whole friggen thing,” Mariah responds. That’s an understatement!



“I think I’m doing well…I’m actually [great]. Everything happens for a reason; things are the way they are. It’s kind of difficult to talk about it at the moment. So I’m just going to compliment you on these decorations once again because they are fabulous and I’m here…”

Yeah, Mariah doesn’t want to talk about this! We feel for her; this split has been very rough, and very public. She probably just wants to grieve the end of her engagement in peace. At least she’s got a hot guy to lean on (literally) right now. Mariah is reportedly dating her sexy backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka! The two have been spotted having intimate dinners all over Los Angeles, including one outing where Mariah was wearing an outfit so racy, her breasts fell out! Things are heating up, and she’s moving on!
