(SL) – Wait. I didn’t know you could receive a settlement from an ex-fiance but according to reports that’s exactly what just happened between Mariah Carey and James Packer.
After a whirlwind romance, the two got engaged and had plans to marry. The engagement lasted from January 2016 to October 2016 before it abruptly ended. It’s believed that Packer initiated the split. Carey was seeking $50 million, but walked away with far less.
Sources claim her overall settlement package is valued between $5 and $10 million. It’s also believed that she was allowed to keep the large diamond engagement ring he gave her.
The settlement supposedly went down a few months ago. Mariah based part of her settlement claim on the fact that she uprooted her life and moved to Los Angeles to be with the Casino businessman.
(SL) – Rumors were swirling that James Packer was suspicious about Mariah Carey’s background dancer and it seems he had good reason to be concerned. The 46 year old singer is still trying to get a payout from Packer but was spotted on the beach in Hawaii smooching on 33 year old Brian Tanaka.
How sway? Mariah is less than 2 months removed from her engagement with Packer and has already moved on? A little quick if you ask me, but if it’s been going on…maybe we’re just late finding out. She’d commented that talking about her relationship with JP was difficult but she doesn’t appear to be struggling too much.
Mariah performed in Honolulu and then made her way over to Maui. She was also in Hawaii over Thanksgiving and spent the holiday with her ex-husband Nick Cannon and their five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Mariah and Packer enjoyed a flashy whirlwind romance which came to an abrupt end in October amidst rumors of her ‘excessive spending’. Meanwhile ex hubby Nick is having a baby with ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.
(SL) – Mariah Carey just announced her engagement to Australian Casino Mogul James Packer, but there’s only one problem. The Grammy award winning singer hasn’t reached a divorce settlement with husband Nick Cannon. Sources say MC believes Cannon is ‘dragging his feet’, but why? Reportedly, they have a prenup so what he can or can’t receive should be ironclad. It’s believed that when Nick and Mariah got marriage he was only worth half-a-million-dollars but he’s made millions since then with a net worth estimated to be around 20 million dollars. Chump change to MiMi’s half a billion dollar fortune, so it is believed that Nick might be trying to work his way around a larger payout. At one point, rumors were circulating that Nick had signed a deal to write a tell-all book about their marriage after MC declined to cut him a check for 30 million. But, Nick told media outlets that he had no plans to write a book. Which makes sense due to the fact that explicit rules and fines are laid out for such disclosures. If Nick breaks the confidentiality clause he will have to pay.
The really interesting fact is that Cannon is the one who filed for divorce a year ago. What’s the holdup Nick?
(SL) – Scandalous! Mariah Carey is all kinds of smiles after her Australian Casino Billionaire boyfriend, James Packer asked her to marry him. Mariah and James have been dating for less than a year and make quite the couple, if I might add. Collectively, they reportedly have a combined network of 4.25 billion dollars. 47- year old James is worth a staggering 3.5 billion and 46-year old M.C. has her own coins with a 525 million dollar fortune.
Somewhere, I’m sure Nick Cannon is happy for Mariah, but he has to be sick inside at the same time. Love Nick, but James Packer is an absolute upgrade. Excluding his finances, Packer appears to be completely devoted to MC, very loving, a family man and has no need to exploit old relationships for good TV or radio interviews. Nick Cannon had a severe problem with keeping old flame Kim Kardashian’s name out of his mouth.
Jewelry experts believe the ring is a D (highest color grading and without flaws) and a stunning 35 carats. The ring is bigger than Beyonce’s and Kim Kardashian’s combined. It’s been a whirlwind romance for sure. The couple met in July 2014. No word on when they started dating, but the two went public in June 2015 and here we are 7 months later and they’ve announced their engagement. This will be one fabulous wedding for sure. Mariah and James spent 56 days traveling around the world on his yacht.
In November 2015, Maria showed off a $500,000 diamond necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels – a gift from billionaire James and the Diva gushes every time she talks about him. It’s good to see Carey smile after a heartbreaking split from Nick Cannon. She had some rough moments and even cried on stage during one performance. Both Mariah and James have been married twice.
The marriage will be Mariah’s third shot at happiness, having previously spent seven years with Nick Cannon, with whom she has two children-4-year old twins Moroccan and Monroe, and five years with music executive Tommy Mottola. James, meanwhile, is also anticipating a third marriage, thanks to his 2013 separation from Erica Packer after six years and three-year union with Jodhi Meares. He has three children, Indigo, seven; Jackson, five; and Emmanuelle, three, from his marriage to Erica.
