Mariah Carey Says Relationship With James Packer Wasn’t Meant To Be: ”You Have to Accept That and Move On”
Mariah Carey is in full promo mode for her new docu-series, Mariah’s World, and is opening up about her failed engagement to James Packer.
During a recent sit-down with E! News, the music icon discussed the premiere episode of the show, during which we’ll see her planning her wedding with the billionaire Australian businessman. “No it’s just, you know, all things in life it’s just like you gotta see what’s meant to be and if it’s meant to be it’s meant to be and if it’s not then ultimately you just have to accept that and move on,” Mariah said when asked if it was difficult to relive those memories.
As we previously reported, Mariah and James split among rumors of her out-of-control spending habits. “James is very generous, but Mariah takes it to the next level,” a source told Page Six at the time.
Allegedly, another source of conflict for the couple was the show, which James was not too keen on. “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,” another source told the gossip page.
Mariah’s World premieres Sunday, December 4 at 9 pm.
