Are you ready for some sexy scoop? HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Mariah Carey’s hot back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka was given the nickname ‘Magic Mike.’ Find out what Bryan had to do to get the steamy title right here!
“Bryan [Tanaka] is an amazing dancer,” a source close to Bryan told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “When he performed at Rock In Rio USA the DJ actually nicknamed him ‘Magic Mike’ because of all his sexy moves that the ladies really loved.” Whoa, way to go Bryan! Must have taken some really nice moves to get that title.
“It was funny that the same weekend that he was dubbed ‘Magic Mike,’ Bryan went to see Mariah [Carey] perform at Caesar’s Palace as a fan, and this led to him meeting her before becoming an integral part of her team and residency.” After that, Bryan traveled the world with Mariah and they became really close. But was that the best idea? Maybe not.
The 46-year-old “We Belong Together” singer was allegedly getting cozy with her 33-year-old back-up dancer, and that may have been a contributing factor to her split from billionaire James Packer, 49. Mariah’s ex-fiance apparently forbid him from entering Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas where Mariah was performing. Whoa! That’s definitely taking things to the extreme. But, can you really blame James for being jealous and nervous about a guy as hot as Bryan hanging around your girl all the time? And to find out his nickname is “Magic Mike” probably isn’t helping matters too much.
However, there hasn’t been any confirmation that Mariah was doing anything truly naughty with Bryan, and she completely denies cheating on James. But whatever was happening, it must have been enough to add fuel to the fire! So enjoy your nickname Bryan, but try not to do anything too naughty.
