Mariah Carey and billionaire James Packer weren’t even married for a day, but the diva is demanding $50million (R700m) after the couple’s messy split.
The couple – who began dating in June 2015 and announced their engagement in January this year — had a moerse rol a few weeks ago during a trip to Europe and haven’t seen each other since.
Now it’s been reported the 46-year-old singer wants to milk the Aussie billionaire, 49, after she moved from New York to Los Angeles to be closer to his children.
It was reported Packer let Mariah keep the $10m engagement ring he gave her.
Meanwhile, Mimi’s new reality TV show is said to be “up in the air”.
The singer’s forthcoming series Mariah’s World is set to hit television screens on December 4 but executives at E! are concerned that she’ll cancel the whole show.
A source said: “Now that the engagement is off, E! is freaking out. The network hoped Mariah’s journey to marriage would draw in viewers, but now there’s fear that much of the key footage with James and the wedding plotline is irrelevant [now they’ve split].
Although the main focus of the show is on Mimi’s career, it’s believed their break-up stemmed from Packer’s issues with exposing their relationship to the cameras.
A source reveals: “James had huge reservations about Mariah’s new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world. James is very generous, but Mariah takes it to the next level.”
