Things didn’t work out between Mariah Carey and James Packer — but she is NOT ready to give up the $10 million engagement ring he gave her! In fact, she was still wearing it while out on the very same day her rep confirmed the breakup.
Mariah Carey, 46, hit the town with her friends following her the confirmation of her split from James Packer on Oct. 28, and it’s impossible to miss the fact that she’s still wearing the massive sparkler her gave her when he proposed last January! The singer’s rep did say Mariah and James are “trying to work it out,” so maybe she’s still rockin’ the bling while things are figured out? CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PICS OF MARIAH WEARING HER RING.
As we previously reported, Mariah and James split in September after having a blowout fight while vacationing in Greece — and they haven’t even seen each other since! It was originally reported that the breakup was over Mariah’s “excessive spending,” and then speculation began that she cheated, but the rep says none of these rumors are the truth.
The latest story on these two is that the 46-year-old has developed a “close relationship” with her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka, 33, amidst her trouble with James. Naturally, this did not make the billionaire happy, and he reportedly confronted Bryan about it. Interestingly, the 33-year-old was with the group Mariah went out with on Thursday, although they weren’t photographed together.
Mariah’s new E! series, Mariah’s World, premieres later this year, and Bryan will be featured on the show, so we’ll likely get a closer look at their friendship and relationship.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Mariah still wearing her ring? Do you think she and James will work things out…or are they totally going to split for good?
