Mariah Carey’s ex-husband, Nick Cannon, previously revealed that they did not sleep together until their wedding night.

And it has now been reported that Mariah Carey deployed similar tactics with fiance James Packer, who she allegedly refused to have sex with until their union became official.


According to TMZ, the 46-year-old singer and her now ex-fiance ‘slept in separate rooms’ and did not indulge in any physical activity other than kissing.

A source told the site that Mariah is a ‘traditional girl’ and because of this, they claim it also dispels any rumours that she had an affair with choreographer and backing dancer Bryan Tanaka, who Packer was allegedly ‘jealous’ of.

Mariah split from her billionaire fiancé following a dramatic fight in September.


In the midst of the rumours surrounding the reason for their split, the star was still wearing her $10million engagement ring when she stepped out for dinner at celebrity hotspot Nobu in Malibu on Thursday evening.

The Touch My Body hitmaker showed off the bling as she enjoyed a catch up with friends.

Mariah is said to be planning on keeping the love token – and if the latest reports are to be believed, that’s not all she wants.


According to TMZ, she is insisting upon a $50million pay off from Packer.

Mariah is said to think he owes her for uprooting her two children from New York to Los Angeles, so Packer could be near his own children.

The report claims Packer also made financial promises to Mariah during their romance, which she wants him to fulfill.

Then there is the cancellation of the South American leg of her tour, which Mariah’s camp are blaming on the trauma of the ‘dramatic fight’ on a yacht in Greece which ended their relationship.

Mariah previously blamed the cancellation on promoters, writing on Twitter last week: ‘Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be cancelled. My fans deserve better than how some of these promoters treated them (sic).’


Mariah was not letting the stress of her break-up show on Thursday night, as she partied with her closest pals – including dancer Bryan.

Bryan is reported to be at the centre of the break-up, with James reportedly using his status to get him ‘banned from Caesar’s Palace’.

It has become a very messy and dramatic end to the love story between the 46-year-old singer and the 48-year-old businessman.

The couple has not seen each other in over a month after a fight while on a romantic European vacation, her spokesperson has said.maxresdefaultk

TMZ reported Packer allegedly did ‘something really bad’ that involved Carey’s assistant and there are other allegations about his behavior.

Her spokesperson denied speculation the split was over infidelity and insists the 46-year-old singer’s excessive spending was not to blame.

‘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 by Mariah,’ her spokesperson told ET exclusively.
