Mariah Carey never even had sex with James Packer, now wants $50 million


Mariah Carey won’t go gently into that good night. Did you expect her breakup with billionaire James Packer to be a quiet, dignified affair? Of course not. Why would she merely cast him aside like a gently worn catsuit? Why wouldn’t she make a five-act melodrama out of it? As we learned last week, Mariah and James broke up. His side says it’s because she’s a crazy diva who spends too much money. Her side says he’s violent, crazy and he should be honored that Mariah allows him to spend money on her.

The money issue is probably going to be a bigger fight – reportedly, Packer was already fine with letting Mariah keep the $10 million diamond ring as a sort of sayonara-gift. But that’s not enough for Mariah, allegedly. TMZ reports that Mariah wants Packer to pay her $50 million because “Mariah believes James has cost her tens of millions of dollars” because he got her to move to LA (from NYC), she’s traumatized by what he did to her assistant, and because of that trauma, she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour. Good luck with that, Mimi.

Meanwhile, you know Mariah doesn’t put out until she’s married, right? It’s true – Nick Cannon has admitted that they didn’t have sex until they were married, and I think she “saved herself” for Tommy Mottola too. I thought/hoped that Mariah was no longer playing that game, or she had at least revised the game so that she could put out when Packer gave her the $10 million diamond. But no. TMZ says… Mariah and James Packer never had sex.

Mariah Carey has the ultimate defense against claims she was banging her choreographer — namely, she doesn’t bang before marriage, and yeah … that includes James Packer. Sources close to Mariah tell us rumors about her relationship with Bryan Tanaka are completely false. We’re told Mimi has a long-standing rep as a “traditional girl,” and wouldn’t blow that for anyone. That stance extended to her now ex-fiance. We’re told even though they lived together and spent weeks at a time on his yacht, they never got sexual. They always had separate rooms in their homes and on their boats.

Mariah’s ex, Nick Cannon, can testify to her puritanical values. He’s admitted in interviews he had to wait ’til they got hitched to round the bases. Our Mariah sources say she and James were more like lovesick 12-year-olds — they made out plenty, but never sealed the deal — and that’s one reason he was pushing hard to get married ASAP. Ahh … best laid plans.

I’ve often wondered if Mariah even really cares about sex. She wants to be seen as sexy, of course, but is she actually interested in having sex? If she never gave up the cookies to Packer and he was still willing to hang around for a more than a year… well, I kind of think he got played. And I wonder if it was worth it?

    Given that in her daily life she goes to extraordinary lengths to move as little as possible, I doubt sex with her is worth waiting for.

    • HeidiM says:

      I would add selfish to that as well.

    • Sophie says:

      I second this! I worked at the New Years bash at Crown Casino in Melbourne last year where Mariah played (it was originally Michael Jackson themed but 2 weeks before her and Packer decided to attend, she requested that they change the theme to ‘Mariah’ because she didn’t want to share the limelight) — she hired a golf buggy to DRIVE HER AROUND THE CAS because she wouldn’t walk!! lel

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Just when I thought I could not possibly dislike this woman any more, good lord. Of course, she made the night all about her. If I was a singer, I would be embarrassed to insist that my music be played, ew.

        Honestly, I am surprised she has not made a real doll of herself, and just used that for pleasure. I have never seen anyone so in love with oneself. I don’t know how any man could be attracted to her and her narcissistic nature. I am so sick of hearing that her behavior should be accepted because she is a “diva.” That is no excuse and it’s not like she cured a disease, please…

      • Olenna says:

        Yeezus. SMH.

    • misery chick says:

      This is not going to post in the right place, I tried lol 😆

      @ KATE-your comment about MC moving as little as possible/ having sex with her made me spit out my breakfast on my cellie
      HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 HA 😆 😆

    • Denise says:

      HA! So telling. It requires effort that you must perform yourself.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Lol Best comment!

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Lol Best comment! 😂😂

      According to tabloids, (this link and OK mag), she said before that she “only has sex on Mondays”.

      WHY I retained this bit of %^*# will haunt me forever… I’ll just go sit quietly in the corner…

  2. Swak says:

    She should thank her lucky stars that she gets to keep the ring and out of the relationship if he’s “violent and crazy”. Better get ready to go to court Mariah to get the money unless he’s willing to pay you to go away. She acts like she’s been married to him.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      I would happily pay Mariah to go away.

    • Hannah says:

      The reason why her South American tour leg was canceled is because nobody really cares about her, she hasn’t had a hit in years, she wanted to perform in stadiums for 80,000 people, do the math.

    • holly hobby says:

      I hope he sees her in court. Really they haven’t been together that long that it qualifies palimony. She should hock her ring if she’s desperate.

  3. RussianBlueCat says:

    “And wouldn’t blow that for anyone. That stance extended to her now ex-fiancé ” That line just made me giggle so much.
    Yes I am silly

    ‘Nick Cannon has admitted that they didn’t have sex until they were married, and I think she “saved herself” for Tommy Mottola too. I thought/hoped that Mariah was no longer playing that game, or she had at least revised the game so that she could put out when Packer gave her the $10 million diamond.’
    I’m sorry but this really rubs me the wrong way. I don’t particularly care for Mariah and the drama she’s bringing here but if she wants to have sex or not before marriage is her business. Her partner can either accept and respect that or move on to someone else. There’s nothing wrong with waiting until marriage just as there’s nothing wrong with not waiting until marriage. She doesn’t owe anybody sex, not even if that person gives her a $10 million diamond.
    Besides it doesn’t even look like the no sex thing was the issue here.

    • Millennial says:

      Yeah the tone here seemed like Mariah waits for marriage because she doesn’t like sex? That’s really presumptuous. There are many other possible reasons, none of them having to do with lack of sexual desire.

      • boredblond says:

        The headline is bothersome..she wants $ and ‘never even had sex’..sounds like only paying for sex is reasonable or the only factor determining the worth of any relationship

      • SnarkAtLarge says:

        I don’t have sex before commitment time. In my current relationship we dated for a year. I am a fitness teacher as a profession so it’s not like I don’t “move”!

    • says:

      I not a puritan. I had casual sex. I also made my former partner wait for next to one year before we had sex.
      I have to had that the “put out” term is to me totally disgusting and debasing. They were dating. It does not means he was entitled to her sexual favours. Or, in your opinion, passed a certain age/time, are women supposed to lie down and take it? So much for respect and real consent.

      • Amanda G says:

        I agree, I don’t like the way this article is written. Just because Mariah is 40 and isn’t a virgin, that doesn’t mean she owes anyone sex. Nick and this guy could have walked away if they didn’t agree with it.

      • DeniseMich says:

        I agree and disagree.

        I don’t think she owes anyone sex at any age for any reason. However, I think she was playing a game. I don’t know if you can call it dating when you move into a house together.

        To me dating implies separate residences.

      • Bettyrose says:

        “lie down and take it”?? No, of course not. But why would anyone want to be in a relationship where sex is a chore? Waiting for marriage, though it seems like an outdated concept to me, probably has merit in some scenarios, but marriage won’t fix a bad relationship. Waiting is one thing but avoiding is a problem.

      • Denise says:

        She probably shouldn’t have moved in with him. But then again he agreed. Though I have to admit that I wouldn’t put it past Mariah to dangle a proposition in front of him, to keep him interested in putting out himself – from his bank account.

      • Bob says:

        You do you, boo, but…

        “I also made my former partner wait for next to one year before we had sex.”

        There’s a certain point of reticence at which most people are going to roll their eyes at you at the very least. You, of course, have a right to stick with what makes you comfortable. But the rest of us aren’t required to play along like that isn’t a bit off-putting.

      • KellzBellz says:

        I will never have sex before a year. It’s not casual to me. With all the diseases and chabce of pregnancy, i want to KNOW someone before we tackle those subjects together. Also conversation and getting to know someone feels so much more intimate to me. TO ME. Sex too early is false intimacy, a lot of problems, and jumping in before the heart and mind is ready. I lost my virginity at 28 due to peer pressure and all my girlfriends telling me I was a weirdo, and I regret having sex so soon and with someone I wasnt in LOVE with just to try it out and get it over with. I respect my friends’ average sex lives, smuttysex lives, periods where they go back and forth, etc, but rarely do people respect my waiting until 28(still too soon!) nor my 8yr celibacy while looking for a life partner. Especially since Im a punk rock atheist!

      • WTW says:

        KellzBellz, if it make you feel better. I didn’t have sex until shortly after I turned 34, which is when I got married. My husband and I were both pretty religious. Now we’ve had some health problems that have really caused us to question our faith, but even if I hadn’t been a Christian, I doubt I would have had sex with anyone other than my husband, simply because he was the first man I truly loved. If my husband and I split, I still don’t think I would have casual sex. Maybe I wouldn’t be married, but I would probably have to be in a serious relationship.

      • says:

        People are going to roll their eyes because I choose to take time before having sex ?
        One, my choices are exactly that, mine, et no one has a right to tell me to have or not to have sex, or to dictate the right time for it.
        Two, I learned the hard way that engaging in sex at some point in a dating relationship tends to give the other some expectations. I do not ever ever want to have to say no and crush a good person in front of his family and friends. Ever. So in a new (and difficult) relationship, I, choose to prolong the observe and learn to know the other/let him know the real me before” “sealing the deal.” I can live without sex, I can not live with a guilty conscience. Sorry If it doesn’t agree with your idea of normalcy.

        The “lie down and take it” may be harsh, but it is more or less the way too many women I met (Part time Social work), actually said it. They were talking about their husbands/companions. They rarely said the word rape, but they felt or knew that they had no choice and could not say refuse.

        I do not care for mimi, but no woman should be expected to have sex. That’s force too.

    • Kaiser says:

      For the love of God, have sex or don’t have sex, I don’t care and it’s none of my business.

      I was obviously being very specific to the situation with Mariah: Mariah uses the promise of sex to lure men into marriage. Sex is part of any healthy relationship and she treats it like a withholding-game. She’s a 40-something woman who has been married twice who still uses the promise of “giving up the cookies” to land a billionaire, and then when it doesn’t work out, she wants him to pay her $50 million!!! For what??

      • Snowflake says:

        This! Twice married and she wants to play no sex until marriage as if she’s some innocent virgin. Gmafb. She’s just playing games, she obviously doesn’t like sex. She’s so ridiculous. If people want to become abstain for personal or religious reasons, fine. But Mariah is just doing it cause she thinks she will get the ring quicker. But I don’t like it, because it gives the idea that “good” girls don’t have sex before marriage. As if that makes them better and more worthy of love and a relationship.

      • V4Real says:

        Mariah said she was practically a Virgin when she married Tommy. How can you be practically a virgin. Oral, maybe. But her ex boyfriend who she lived briefly with on a boat claimed they had full on sex before she got married to Tommy. Now that doesn’t mean I believe the ex but Mariah is not above lying. Before she made it big in the business (back up singer for Breda K Star) she used to tell people she was Italian. Once she got her break she was advised that it wasn’t a good career move to deny her heritage.

        Oh and there’s nothing wrong with waiting until marriage for sex if that’s your wish. Mariah mistake is thinking her sex is worth waiting for.

        And let’s not forget she didn’t make Luis Miguel wait.

      • Kaiser says:

        V4Real – didn’t she also fool around with Eminem at some point?? Or was that thing because she didn’t have sex with him and there were so many emotions about it?

      • Sixer says:

        That’s what I understood you to be saying, Kaiser. Thanks for clarifying.

      • BritAfrica says:

        @ Kaiser

        ‘Sex is part of any healthy relationship and she treats it like a withholding-game.’

        Err….not sure about that one. She is saying ‘I won’t have sex before marriage at this stage of my life’. Surely that is her right if that is what she wants to do?

        And, the man she was involved with hung around for a year. So presumably he agreed with the position she adopted (no pun intended!) until he, well……didn’t.

        She is crazy to demand money for her ‘time’ but not wrong to hold her view. If a bloke doesn’t like it or agree with it, he can always move on.

      • bluhare says:

        I agree BritAfrica. If she doesn’t have sex before marriage — and has a track record — then it’s not like she was playing games here.

        Not every healthy woman who doesn’t have premarital sex is playing a withholding game either. Some actually have values that indicate they should not. And they don’t. I don’t know if Mariah actually holds those values, but it’s her right to decide who she has sex with.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Totally with you on this, Kaiser. Sex is part of a healthy relationship. At 18, women and men sometimes have different ideas about what sex signifies in a relationship, and thus waiting until the relationship is better defined makes sense, but at 40 in a committed relationship, “withholding sex” is a bizarre concept. Sex isn’t a favor that your partner earns. It’s an integral and mutually beneficial part of an adult relationship. If both parties agree to wait, more power to them, but if it’s not a mutual decision, the couple may simply not be sexually compatible.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I gotta go with Kaiser on this one. At the risk of sounding judgmental, it seems like MC has an unhealthy–or at the very least odd–relationship with sex.

      • bluhare says:

        We are conflating her public personal with who she is, and they might not be the same. They might be, or they might not. As such, I do not think it fair to make comments about her attitude about sex. It’s obvious she’s hugely controlling over her public persona but we have no idea what’s underneath.

        Making comments about riding around because she doesn’t want to walk, being the diva to end all divas, that’s fair game because that’s what she’s putting out there for consumption. But she isn’t putting out her sex life, is she? We just found out she hasn’t had sex with the guy. Therefore, I don’t think it’s fair to say what her attitude to sex is. Her sister’s a prostitute and drug addict. She projects this little girl image who needs to be taken care of. She’s had to be hospitalized for mental issues. I can draw some parallels there and they aren’t pretty. Which makes me just as bad as everyone else and I’m now going to hang my head in shame and withdraw from the conversation.

      • Tanakasan says:

        Sex is not a part of every healthy relationship. And making your preferences known while dating is not “playing a withholding game.”

      • Kaiser says:

        Bluhare – the TMZ story comes from “Mariah sources” – this “no sex before marriage” is coming from her camp, because she’s desperate to explain why she didn’t cheat on James Packer and he didn’t break up with her because of that. Her very public argument is she didn’t cheat because she doesn’t have sex before marriage. It’s also something Nick Cannon has said about her too. People aren’t sitting around, idly theorizing. THIS IS HER NARRATIVE. She wants this to be the conversation.

      • MC2 says:

        I think if Packer was out blabbing about her not having sex & owing it to him that would be a very different spin but the foundation of this take is that this is Mariah’s story, her shtick and has been for years…..she acts super sexy but then says she is a “good girl”, which means don’t have sex.

        I have never liked Mariah’s “thing”. Twirling her hair and looking down to seem demure, helpless and like a little girl. It’s been downright creepy. So this whole narrative that he owes her $10 million and that she is white as snow (she doesn’t even have sex before marriage!) tastes kind of yucky.

        Have sex or don’t have sex but Mariah is the one talking about her bedding habits.
        She is not on my list of women who are trying to make it easier or inclusive to be a woman in the world and her parading her virginal qualities is part of this.

        He dodged a major bullet in not marrying this budget Liz Taylor imo.

      • ravensdaughter says:

        I put out and the best I get is a paperback book. Hmmmm….may have to rethink this. (Tongue firmly in cheek)…

    • Kelly says:

      Exactly Aquamarine. If that is her person choice to wait then good for her. Nothing wrong with that, I personally find it commendable. People are quick to say no slut shaming, well it works both ways.

    • HadleyB says:

      If she wants to wait until married what is the issue? He obviously knew and even if she was banging everyone she met before — you can change as you get older.

      I can’t believe we are blasting her for not having sex with her boyfriend, its ridiculous!

      My only problem with it is when a woman ( or man!) would not be up front about their preferences with their partner. I don’t think he was clueless about it.

      And who cares if she was married before or had sex with 100 men before? She has her reasons, its her body! You don’t owe anyone sex for any reason.

      We don’t know she doesn’t enjoy sex and its crazy to imply she is frigid because she refuses sex before marriage, Wow.

      And I also don’t care if anyone chooses to have sex on the first date — my only issue I EVER had with sex is I see and hear about so many women ( friends, co workers etc) who have sex sex with me and who they obviously are not attracted to or don’t want. I see more of that than withholding and that is a bigger issue to me than saying no, not until marriage.

  5. MI6 says:

    …how is anyone even remotely interested in this woman?
    Although I do agree “putting out for a ring” is pretty basic. Are we really still thinking that way in 2016?

    • tigerlily says:

      Are we still thinking that way in 2016? Apparently Mariah is. Agree with Kaiser-this is all Mimi’s narrative and seems like everyone is wanting to shoot the messenger (Kaiser) and getting all PC over nothing.

  6. naomipaige says:

    This woman is a mess, and clearly delusional.

  7. my3cents says:

    I think that in addition to the ring he paid for a whole lot of liposuction. Girl got skinny really fast, and for someone that likes being carried everywhere I just don’t think it happened by hard work.

    • Lady D says:

      IKR? She lost about 25 pounds in a 6 week period. I was wondering at the time why no mags or blogs had written about it.

    • Erica_V says:

      She has basically an entire new body. Her arms are freaky esp around where your arm meets your shoulder, it’s like they removed skin and nipped it in under the armpit. it’s weird!!

  8. EMAu says:

    Packer dodged a bullet with her. Carey is still a nut.

  9. BritAfrica says:

    Ah, Mimi darling…… are still one crazy chick. Bless! But I can’t seriously fault you for holding out on THAT man!

    Actually, I think I want to listen to ‘Betcha Gon’ Know’ right about now…

  10. Alix says:

    So, because of this relationship she made some life choices that didn’t work out. Suck it up, Mimi.

    BTW, how much is Schemin’ Mini worth? She must be loaded.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah, at first I thought, why would he complain about her spending? She’s loaded. But then I realized, she was prob spending his money. Why spend her money when she can spend his? Lol

    • Annetommy says:

      I read about $400 million but have no idea if that’s true. Even if it’s a lot less than that, I don’t understand why she would demean herself and try and get compensation in this situation.

      • Snowflake says:

        Its very tacky. She is a grown woman with money who moved for love. It didnt cost 50 million, and you cant get every penny back when you make a foolish financial decision. She’s making herself look like a golddigger.

  11. Lolo86lf says:

    Ms. Carey seems to have a one-way street standard of sorts. She will only have sex with her fiances until she is married to them but she has no problem spending their money before marriage? I am not implying that women have to have sex with men who spend money on them, but isn’t hypocritical of Mariah to ask for such an exorbitant amount of money from a men she never married? I am just saying.

  12. Mew says:

    She and Eminem had a fling and “she let him hit it only once in 6 months” and no they weren’t married. Eminem wrote a “Warning rap” to her about it, claiming he had pictures and having voice tapes of her sexily purring to him during a recording session. What I think first is some Trina-esque lyrics like “make him pay first if he wants to have it”.

    Whatever are her reasons, she doesn’t own sex to anyone. If someone wants to blow fe millions on her, she still doesn’t own sex to anyone. She has every right to decide on her body.

  13. Snowflake says:

    You guys, this is Mariah! She’s not NOT having sex because of religious reasons or valid personal reasons. She’s doing it because she thinks she’s worth more to potential partners if she doesn’t have sex with them before marriage. Cause she’s showing she’s a “good girl”. And since she’s only doing this when she’s on the hunt for a husband, it comes across as game playing to me. That’s my opinion. And it perpetrates the sterotype that you’re worth more as a woman it you don’t have sex. That’s my problem with it. Have sex, don’t have sex, whatever, but don’t not do it as something you think increases your value to a man. And that’s what she’s doing.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      I love your post, and correct me if I wrong but I interpret it as Mariah using sex ( or lack of it) as a pawn. I believe that extremes are not good. Women should not have sex with boyfriends on the first date, but don’t make your fiancé wait 1.5 years for intimacy. He was obviously serious about her because he gave her a 10 MILLION dollar engagement ring! She is such a diva.

      • Brittney B. says:

        “Women should not have sex with boyfriends on the first date”

        Whoops. I guess I *SHOULD* have repressed my desire and respected myself more that night. What about him, though? Do you think guys “shouldn’t” have sex with first dates either?

        We’re still together seven years later, so maybe your rules don’t always apply.

        (We seem to basically agree on this, so I’m sorry for being nitpicky about that one line… I think it was other commenters that set me off.)

      • Lolo86lf says:

        @Brittney B. I do not believe in double standards. Both women and men should not have sex on the first date. I said women on my post because I was referring specifically to Mariah. But you two stayed together because you loved each other, that’s real love ❤️

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        “I believe that extremes are not good. Women should not have sex with boyfriends on the first date, but don’t make your fiancé wait 1.5 years for intimacy.” I don’t know about all that. The idea that consensual sex is something so dirty, holy, or scary that women or anyone else should be told that having it before some arbitrary point- second date, proposal, True Love, marriage, whatevs- is some ‘extreme’ thing that nobody should try feels a lot more extreme than someone having sex on a first date or having a casual hook-up/FWB situation. It even seems more extreme than the person who waits 1.5 years into a relationship to have intercourse but doesn’t go around telling other people that’s what they need to be doing.

      • Ange says:

        People should not have sex on the first date because they might…. What? Enjoy it? Who cares if they have sex on the first date. I did with my now husband, he didn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with it. If a guy (or girl) judges you negatively for something you BOTH eagerly participated in then they aren’t worth any more of your time anyway and it’s a bullet dodged.

    • ladysussex says:

      How can YOU judge if she has “valid personal reasons”?!?! ANY reason a woman chooses to wait have sex with her partner is a valid personal reason.

      • Tanakasan says:

        THANK YOU! And she is not putting any message out there about who other people should be sleeping with and why. that is ridiculous. She has her own preferences. She did not lie about it. In this world of women being able to own their sexuality, why is a woman owning it in this particular way so off-putting? There are as many ways to be sexual as there are people. This is her way. It should be respected.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        Most of the time I’m not a fan of the idea that people need valid ‘reasons’ or passes to not have sex (religion! They’re asexual! age! something physical!) or have sex (Love! Marriage! Pro-Creation! Solely for her own physical pleasure!) either. It’s an idea that’s proven to be one big slippery-slope shitstorm since the beginning of time. And I agree with everything you said Tanakasan about people owning their sexuality. But I don’t agree with the people who think this article is implying that women ever owe sex. They may be on to something about Mariah using waiting to get him to marry her though, or, since this is a little bit of a pattern with her, it may really be based on some personal idea/preference she has even though she isn’t uber religious. I don’t think either is ‘wrong’ of her to do or something that goes against womankind.

    • Ange says:

      And it’s weird anyway. She won’t have sex with you but she’ll marry you a few weeks in (see: Nick Cannon). If she was holding off on the sex because she wanted to get to know the guy better why marry him so quickly? It really does look like a ploy to lock men down.

  14. Oxy says:

    I never understood what was in it for him in this relationship. As gross as it is – wouldn’t the model route have been so much simpler?

    Instead he went after Mariah fking Carey – Ms 24/7 uber maintenance butterfly. It just seems like a lot of hassle when all he probably wanted was a trophy wife.

    Not that I care they are both gross imo; just find it fascinating lol.

    • Bee says:

      He had a trophy (model) wife. Maybe he wanted more drama? More excitement? More fame? Or simply, deal with a mid-life crisis by living a little bit of crazy. It’s quite possible he never intended to marry her, ever. A $10 mill ring to him is like $100 to the rest of us.

      • Kate says:

        Fame. He likes the idea of being a famous billionaire casino owner, but he’s unattractive, has all the personality of wet cardboard and isn’t really that rich or successful as far as young-ish billionaires go. He’s a big fish in a small pond in Australia, but elsewhere his fortune amounts to less than some billionaires yachts. There’s no story to hook people either, everything he has is down to his father and grandfather, and he’s actually lost almost half of what was left to him in about a decade, so he’s no self-starter and no great businessman.

        A famous girlfriend is the only way he gets the kind of attention he’s looking for.

      @Oxy – fame… wider fame.. would we at celebitchy discuss Packer if not for Mariah?
      Other than that who knows.

  15. me says:

    It’s being reported this story is false. She is not demanding money from him as per her publicist.

    • HappyMom says:

      Is her publicist that crazy Russian woman who is now always by her side? I think it was Lainey Gossip who did a fascinating story on her a while ago . . .

  16. Skins says:

    Well, we knew what she was when she hooked up with him, now we know her price

    • Lolo86lf says:

      I don’t know what she was. How was she? Do brides have a price?

    • Jeo says:

      Oh please! What the hell are you implying?

      • Lolo86lf says:

        I am actually trying to understand. Women and men tacitly get married because of love. It seems to me that Ms Carey was playing a game with her ex-fiancé. Her relationship with him hardly seemed one like love. $50million?

  17. minx says:

    I think they were actually a good couple for awhile, but I’m not surprised it ended.

  18. Boxy Lady says:

    Mariah really likes the fact that she can count her number of sexual partners on one hand. (The ones that people know about anyway.) I remembered Luis Miguel but I have no idea if she counts Eminem. Probably not. In any case, those would be 2 instances where she had premarital sex and the relationship ended badly. Perhaps she decided that waiting until marriage would make the relationship more solid, based on those 2 experiences. And let’s not forget that her own sister is a HIV positive prostitute. Other people’s mistakes, especially those of family members, often factor into a person’s decision-making. I wouldn’t be surprised if her sister’s lifestyle influenced Mariah to go into the completely opposite direction.

    PS In reality, she and Nick moved rather quickly. They may not have had premarital sex but IIRC, they had only known each other for about a month before they married.

  19. KiddVicious says:

    If their official residence is LA then he’s not “letting” her keep the ring. He broke an implied contract, the ring is legally hers. If she had called off the engagement then she legally would have to give it back.

    They always seemed like such an odd couple to me.

  20. hey-ya says:

    …I dont get Mariah current emtourage…she dresses rich glam, they dress like dowdy clerks…Id be embarassed…

  21. Tanakasan says:

    Packer did not “get played.” Women can do as they with with their bodies, and if she was not into premarital sex and he wooed her for over year, then he respected her wishes. Women do not owe men sex, no matter what men do for them!!!

    • Lolo86lf says:

      Let’s pretend that Packer and Carey did get married. And on the wedding night they discover that they are not sexually compatible. What do they do? Do they annul the marriage? Wouldn’t it be wise to have intimacy at least once before the wedding to make sure they are compatible?

      • Bridget says:

        That’s not grounds for an annulment, though. They can choose to divorce if they both decide it’s not working for them, but they’re both adults who are fully capable of making their own choices. No one forced Packer to be with her.

      • Snowflake says:

        Yeah, I would want to test it out personally before marriage. Sexual compatibility is very important to me. I could not wait myself

    • Bryan says:

      Nor does he owe her 50 million dollars. Ending an engagement does not entitle a person to financial payoffs.

      • Tanakasan says:

        I know! It’s so funny that she’s even asking! What a freakin weirdo. I always hear that she’s a crazy super diva, but I never heard anything like this about her before! I should have sued my ex bf for not fixing my car like he promised!

  22. Deeanna says:

    $50 million would be chump change to James Packer, Forbes rates him as the 453rd richest person in the world with assets worth $3.8 billion.

    Interestingly enough, from late 2001 through 2006 Packer was an active Scientologist, having been introduced to Scientology by none other than Tom Cruise. In 2006 Packer apparently dropped away from the church.

    In February of this year Packer hired himself a new “North Amercian General Manager” – none other than Tommy Davis, former chief spokesperson for the Church of Scientology! Rumors are rampant that Tommy Davis is covertly “on assignment” by the Church of Scientology to “recover” Packer to the Cof$.

    If Packer, who sounds like he has had some fairly significant emotional problems in the past, is being once again influenced by Scientologists, it would make sense that they would be urging him to get Mariah out of his life. Does she deserve a monetary settlement? Maybe, maybe not – only time will tell if she gets one.

    As for the no sex before marriage, does anyone think Jackie Kennedy “gave it up” to the much older and definitely not good looking billionaire Aristotle Onassis prior to marriage? I highly doubt it.

    • Bridget says:

      His father Kerry was actually very into Scientology. I wouldn’t characterize it as Tom Cruise bringing him into the fold, but when Kerry passed, Cruise tried to keep James interested in the “church”. If you remember the dust-up over Katie Holmes flying to Australia at something like 8-9 months pregnant, it was for Kerry’s funeral (and reportedly because they were frantically trying to keep the family within the Sci fold)

  23. Yesitstrue says:

    Shouldn’t the assistant be the traumatized one who gets the money?

  24. Lotta says:

    Maybe I’m a slut then, but I slept with almost all of my adult longterm partners on the first night. Except my husband, but we worked together so we were a bit more cautious. So we slept together on the 2nd date, but about one minute efter he rang on the door and I opened it. We’ve been together 17 yrs now.

  25. Debutante says:

    Mariah Carey is the antithesis of sexy to me.

    She tries so hard to be sexy in her dress and mannerisms, but she comes off so phony and weird.

    Bit** is crazy.

  26. Greentea says:

    “If she never gave up the cookies to Packer and he was still willing to hang around for a more than a year… well, I kind of think he got played. And I wonder if it was worth it?”

    He loved the fame it gave him. She also helped publicise his casinos with singing performances, but in hindsight you have to wonder if that actually ended up making his casino empire lose rather than gain credibility. She’s definitely delusional and I can believe the $50 million thing. Batsh!t lady – you just have to watch one of her lipsync accidents to know that. Beyond wacky.

  27. Emily says:

    I think it’s very difficult (though not impossible) to spend a great deal of time with someone you’re supposedly in love with and attracted to enough to marry … for an entire year … and not have sex. They aren’t 15. They’re grown adults. What’s the hold-up?
