Say what? Mariah Carey may have taken a vow of celibacy ahead of her nuptials to James Packer. The diva is ‘saving herself’ until the big night according to a new report and HollywoodLife.com has all the details.
Mariah Carey, 46, and James Packer, 48, are undoubtedly head over heels about each other, but it turns out their love has nothing to do with what goes on in the bedroom. In fact, the two have allegedly been holding off on having sex until they tie the knot. Are they really born-again virgins? We’ve got the scoop here!
“I hear that it has been a mostly platonic relationship,” a source told The Sydney Morning Herald. “According to what I hear she wants to save herself for the wedding night.” While becoming born-again virgins is common among other celebrities, including Ciara, 27, and Russell Wilson, 30, we have to wonder what drove Mariah to this decision.
If the rumors are true, her choice could have something to do with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, 35. Since the two separated, Nick has been blasting the “We Belong Together” singer in spoken word pieces and songs like his most recent one, “Divorce Papers.” Not cool.
So because her marriage to Nick didn’t work out as planned, and the divorce resulted in her being bashed, she might be trying a new approach this time around. Sometimes hopping into bed before getting to know each other complicates the situation, so Mariah may be saving herself to preserve their love and friendship at this stage.
And it should be worth the wait because their wedding is surely going to be a night to remember! Unfortunately, Mariah hasn’t revealed much about her wedding, which has led many to speculate that something was stalling the couple. But according to the Herald, the wedding is still very much on. And judging by the huge rock James put on her finger, it is going to be extravagant!
Mariah’s docu-series, Mariah’s World, which recently aired on June 19, will share a glimpse of Mariah’s personal wedding plans with fans. So while fans may get to see all the details that go into the planning for her beautiful day, they probably won’t see much PDA from James and Mariah, until after they say, ‘I do.’
HollywoodLifers, do you think Mariah and James are a good match?
