Mariah Carey’s relationship with James Packer might have ended, but the star is allegedly determined to keep the engagement ring she received from her ex. The ring is said to be worth no less than $10 million, so there is no wonder that Mariah is not eager to give it back. Moreover, a new report has indicated that the pop diva might obtain some money from this split.
A new report from Page Six said that not only that Mariah is keeping the impressive diamond ring, which is said to be worth $10 million, but she also wants “millions in a settlement” for uprooting her life in order to be with James. Well, the fact that Mariah is keeping the ring was confirmed by her latest appearance in Malibu, California. The star was spotted with the 35-carat diamond ring on.
Mariah Carey and James Packer are said to have separated following a fight that occurred on James’ yacht, as the two were on vacation in Greece. This has allegedly happened in September. The reason of the fight has not been confirmed, but a series of things have been speculated so far. For instance, it has been said that the pair ended things because Mariah had been hooking up with one of her backup dancers, Bryan Tanaka. Other rumors said that James was to blame for the split, while some indicated that Mariah’s expensive and luxurious lifestyle led to the separation.
One insider claimed that Mariah has been seeking $50 million from James, but she will most likely not get this amount of money. “Of course Mariah wants money, but she’s not getting $50 million. There’s no negotiations about money because they haven’t spoken since the split. He let her keep the ring, and she isn’t getting a cent more. It is ridiculous to claim that James is the reason for the cancellation of her South America tour. A few days ago she blamed it on the promoters,” the source claimed.
A rep for Mariah confirmed the split, but said that the cheating or expensive lifestyle rumors were not true.
