Although Mariah Carey and James Packer reportedly split, she looked happier than ever, while rocking her engagement ring Oct. 30! The singer and her children, Moroccan and Monroe, were out for dinner in LA, where she wore the $10 million ring! Mariah even donned a pair of sexy cat ears! See the pics here!
What is actually going on here? Mariah Carey, 46, enjoyed a night out at Au Fudge in LA with her children, Moroccan, 5, and Monroe, 5, according to Daily Mail. Aside from her sexy Halloween kitty look, what really caught our eye was her $10 million engagement ring! Her insanely large rock from James Packer, 49, was strategically placed on her right hand. Usually we’d be gushing over the ring, but as you may know, she and James are reportedly going through a tumultuous split.
A lot of people are questioning whether the breakup rumors are true. Why? — Well, according to an official statement from her camp, Oct. 27, she and James are apparently still a couple. “They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together,” part of the statement read. Hmm…
News of trouble in paradise first emerged Oct. 26, when a report claimed James dumped Mariah due to her “excessive spending” habits, which caused turmoil in their relationship. Then, the very next day, a new report from TMZ claimed the two had split because James did “something really bad involving her assistant” while on their rip to Greece around Sept. 23. The report also said they hadn’t seen each other or spoken for more than a month. After that, rumblings of a messy split started to swirl.
The “Without You” singer has reportedly been cozying up to her sexy backup dancer, choreographer and good friend, Bryan Tanaka, 33. She allegedly struck up a relationship with the dancer while she was with James. The Australian billionaire supposedly confronted Bryan and attempted to get him banned from the casino in Vegas where Mariah performs. CRAZY!
However, whether that is true or not, Mariah doesn’t seem to care. She’s reportedly been spending a lot of time with Bryan. The two were even spotted on a dinner date Oct. 30, where they left together in the same car together. The LA date night occurred just two days after news that she gave Bryan a scandalous lap dance on stage back in May came out. You can watch that insane moment, here! Disclaimer: It’s NSFW!
While Mariah has yet to speak out, aside from her camp’s statement, word that she and Bryan are reportedly dating keeps circulating. There’s even a report that she could have been driven right into Bryan’s arms. “James was not in the right mind for months,” an alleged source told E! Oct. 27. “Mariah was in essence an abandoned woman. While in Vegas, she turned to and developed a close relationship with Bryan Tanaka.” WOW!
