Bryan Tanaka could be the last piece of the Mariah Carey and James Packer puzzle. The singer is said to have developed a cozy relationship with her back-up dancer, but who is this guy? Check out these five intriguing facts about the stud!
1. James Packer doesn’t like him very much.
AND FOR GOOD REASON! James Packer, 49, got wind that Mariah Carey, 46, was getting cozy with Bryan Tanaka, 33, and so he decided to do something about it. The billionaire confronted Bryan, and even forbid him from entering Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
2. Bryan traveled the world with Mariah.
Since he’s her backup dancer and choreographer, it’s only natural that they spend a lot of time together. Bryan accompanied Mariah on her private planes, to her Halloween parties, and hopped from country to country with her.

3. He’s in love with a lady named Mila.
Mila is Bryan’s furry, four-legged baby girl. And she’s the cutest grey and white pit bull we’ve ever seen. Bryan has brought Mila along for all kinds of adventures when he’s on the road with Mariah — from Pike’s Place Market in Seattle to casinos in Las Vegas.
4. Bryan is basically Doctor Doolittle.
Just by scrolling through the dancer’s Instagram, we can tell he’s OBSESSED with animals. Bryan has posed with all types of exotic creatures during his travels around the world, like snakes, monkeys, owls, and tigers (it was actually a statue of a tiger, but same thing).
5. He’s an adrenaline junkie.
Bryan isn’t afraid of a challenge, which was made pretty clear when he posted a video of himself jumping off a waterfall in Hawaii. But when he’s not putting his life at risk, Bryan likes the usual sporty activities like biking, hiking, jet skiing, and lifting weights at the gym.
