Billionaire James Packer has called it quits with pop superstar fiancée Mariah Carey, according to a new report.
According to Australian publication Woman’s Day, the casino mogul, 48, dumped the 46-year-old ‘Emotions’ singer over her extravagant spending, her closeness to estranged hubby Nick Cannon and his annoyance over her new reality TV show, Mariah’s World.
The tycoon is understood to have walked away from the singer as she prepares to expose much of her glittering life on a new reality TV show, allowing her to keep the $10m diamond engagement ring he gave her in January.
“It’s all over,” confirms one close family friend.
“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.”
The news comes as no great shock to friends and relatives of the Packer family who have had reservations about the relationship ever since James started wooing the flamboyant singer in Las Vegas last year.
