Mariah Carey and James Packer Have Reportedly Split

After a whirlwind romance and on-again/off-again wedding, is it really splitsville for the pop star and Aussie billionaire?

Mariah Carey and James Packer have reportedly ended their engagement. 

According to Woman's Day magazine, James has called off the wedding due to Mariah's "extravagant spending" as well as "her new reality show (Mariah's World)." 

The inside source who reportedly spoke to the magazine said: “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.” 

Rumours have been swirling for weeks that the relationship had hit hard times, with the couple not spending as much time together and the tycoon notably absent from the singer's Instagram feed.

The report also notes that while it was James who walked away, he has allowed her to keep the sparkling $10 million engagement ring he gave her in January. 

Mariah, 46, and James, 49, have been seemingly smitten with each other ever since they met in late 2014 and he proposed less than a year later.

Neither party have officially responded to the report.
