Mariah Carey is fighting back! Following reports that James Packer dumped his fiancée for ‘overspending,’ the singer’s team was quick to insinuate that their explosive fight in Greece is the REAL reason why they aren’t speaking. Read the full statement, here.
Mariah Carey, 46, was made out to look like an overspending diva when reports claimed James Packer, 49, dumped her, but now, the feisty singer is sharing her side of the story. Contrary to popular belief, the billionaire and the “We Belong Together” songstress aren’t officially broken up, according to her PR team. They technically are still together, just not on speaking terms right now.
“Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since,” wrote a member of Mariah’s camp in an official statement on Oct. 26. “The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together.”
In an ironic turn of events, it’s now James who is looking like the bad guy in this situation. It’s being reported that Australian businessman allegedly acted violently towards his lady about a month ago when they took a trip to Greece. Some people were quick to say that James is “mentally unstable” and “is not in his right mind,” according to TMZ.
We hate to see one of our favorite power couples fighting like this, so it’s probably best that they take some time apart to think about what they really want. Based on the statement, the future of their relationship doesn’t look good, which is totally heartbreaking because they were so close to walking down the aisle! It wasn’t long ago that Mariah couldn’t help but gush over the HUGE engagement ring he bought for her in Jan. We really hope these two can work it out!
HollywoodLifers, do you believe Mariah’s rep’s story? Or do you think she was overspending?
