Uh oh! Mariah Carey may have been driven into the arms of another man while things were going south with James Packer. On Oct. 27, new reports claim that she ‘developed a close relationship’ with one of her backup dancers, Bryan Tanaka, while not speaking to James. We have all the details, right here.
This is getting juicy. Mariah Carey, 46, sadly revealed that she and James Packer, 49, were going through some tough times on Oct. 27, when her team admitted in a statement that they haven’t spoken since their trip to Greece. Now, E! reports that Mariah has run into the arms of another man for comfort during her engagement struggles. “James was not in the right mind for months,” says a source. “Mariah was in essence an abandoned woman. While in Vegas, she turned to and developed a close relationship with Bryan Tanaka.”

Bryan is one of Mariah’s backup dancers. He’s 33 years old and featured on her show Mariah’s World, and if his Instagram is any indication, he’s one of her favorite dancers and also a close friend. Bryan is super hot, and in her Vegas show he was selected to be the one to feed her grapes during her bathtub scene, she sits on his lap in another song, and he is often at the front of the group beside her. He was even part of her Complex Magazine cover shoot, posing shirtless and gazing at her.
On a personal level these two are clearly tight. On Oct. 25, Bryan posted a photo of himself with Mariah, Floyd Mayweather and TI’s wife Tiny hanging out at a Halloween party. Mariah is dressed as a sexy red devil and he’s a hot Clark Kent. Photos from the last six months also show them at various parties, posing on private jets and even going on a safari together. Steamy!

Despite the news, Mariah’s statement said that she is NOT broken up from James, and that there was no cheating, though they may not be able to work things out.
