Mariah Carey is not backing down! After her nasty fallout with fiance James Packer, the singer is demanding millions of dollars for ‘uprooting her life.’ Oh, and she’s keeping her engagement ring too!
Mariah Carey, 46, is a diva until the end! The “We Belong Together” singer and billionaire fiance James Packer, 49, may be on the outs, but Mariah isn’t done with him just yet! Now, she’s looking to hit James where it hurts: his pockets! Mariah is demanding James cough up $50 million for “uprooting her life,” according to TMZ.
The top-charting singer believes James has cost her tens of millions of dollars, and she deserves to be reimbursed, according to sources at the site. Not only has the Australian businessman allegedly turned her world upside down by convincing her to move from New York City to Los Angeles, but she claims she was so traumatized by the explosive fight that occurred on a yacht in Greece, that she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour, losing a lot of money as a result. Additionally, the singer alleges her ex made many financial promises that he did not follow through on.
Following the news of the couple’s split, sources close to Mariah spilled that the fight, in which James did “something really bad” to Mariah’s assistant, was the real reason Mariah and James went their separate ways. This sounds really messy!
We don’t want to pick sides or anything, but it is quite humorous that Mariah chose to attack James through his bank account, seeing how reports initially revealed that James dumped the singer because of her “excessive spending.” But it looks like the “Shake It Off” singer is sending a clear message: no one tells Mariah anything too much!
In addition to demanding the huge sum of money from her ex, Mariah allegedly refuses to hand over her 35-carat engagement ring, according to TMZ. The huge rock reportedly cost $10 million, so if she doesn’t have to fork it over, she’ll be getting some serious pocket change. But despite the excessive media attention, Mariah and James aren’t completely dunzo; they’re just not on speaking terms, as we previously reported. So let’s hope these two find a way to work it out.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Mariah demanding $50 million from James? Should keeping the engagement be enough? Let us know!
