After two failed marriages, it seemed that Mariah Carey had finally met her Dreamlover.
Casino billionaire James Packer proposed to pop’s ultimate diva in January after a whirlwind romance that saw the couple jet across the world and holiday on his superyacht.
But the Aussie businessman and the singer have dramatically called off their ten-month engagement following an explosive row in Greece last month.
It is rumoured that Mimi’s close relationship with a backing dancer and disputes over her notoriously lavish lifestyle are to blame.
A close friend of the 49-year-old tycoon revealed:
“Mariah spends £80,000 a month ordering exotic flowers from around the world to where she happens to be.
“When they’re on one of the boats, she has her stylist fly in outfits on a helicopter and she spends tens of thousands of dollars in minutes.”
Another source said: “James is very generous, but Mariah takes it to the next level.”
Former Scientologist James, who is worth around £2.8billion, is also said to have struggled with the singer’s decision to feature their relationship in her new reality TV show Mariah’s World, which premieres on E! in December.
A close family friend revealed: “James had huge reservations about Mariah’s TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.”
James is said to be in such a rush to cut ties with Mariah, 46, that he will let her keep the 35-carat diamond and platinum engagement ring.
Mariah’s friends have hit back with claims that he became crazed over her “close relationship” with hunky dancer Bryan Tanaka.
When Bryan suffered a knee injury that left him unable to perform in May, Mariah gave him a saucy lapdance on stage.
In June, James was said to be furious when the dancer showed up at Mimi’s Las Vegas show even though he couldn’t perform.
It’s alleged the Aussie pulled the dancer into a side room where things got very heated.
Sources say James even used his casino ties to have the dancer banned from Caesars Palace, where Mariah has a high-paying residency.
However, the singer’s representative has denied the split was due to infidelity or her excessive spending, saying: “Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since.
“The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending.
“They are trying to work it out. They’re not sure if they will stay together.”
James was noticeably absent from Mariah’s Halloween party last weekend, with the singer posing for photos with Bryan, ex-husband Nick Cannon and their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Mariah was married to Cannon for six years before he filed for divorce in 2014.
News of James’s break-up might come as a relief to his family.
