Mariah Carey and James Packer 'Haven't Seen Each Other' Since Fight
But a rep for the couple says they are "trying to work it out."
It might not be totally over for Mariah Carey and James Packer.
On Thursday, multiple sources revealed to WHO the singer and the Australian billionaire businessman split after Packer “needed a break.”
Now, a rep for Carey confirms the pair are on the rocks after their Greece vacation took a turn for the worse last month.
“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,” says the rep in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.
“James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together. They are discussing it, and plan to release an official statement together about their future.”
Packer, 49, proposed to Carey, 46, with a 35-carat diamond engagement ring in her hometown of New York City in January, just months after they took their relationship public last September.
“James is all about business and making money. Some of Mariah’s eccentric ways, especially her spending habits, caused drama,” a source told WHO about the breakup. Added an insider who knows the couple about Packer’s family: “They don’t like her at all and never have.”
The couple were last photographed together in Mykonos, Greece in late September. Though the diva said in June their wedding was coming together, a source told WHO last month a wedding date had not yet been set.
