At the end of September, Mariah Carey published her memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey, in which she talked about her difficult childhood and youth, as well as details of personal relationships.
The singer revealed the details of her relationship with her first husband Tommy Mottola, who is 21 years older than her, and spoke about her relationship with the father of her children, comedian Nick Cannon. But she never once mentioned her fiancé, Australian billionaire James Packer. He and Mariah began dating in the summer of 2015, got engaged in January of the following year, but broke up a year later. A spokesman for the book’s Australian publisher, Pan McMillan, confirmed to the Daily Mail Australia that Packer is not mentioned at all in Carey’s memoir.
During an interview with The Guardian, the singer was asked why she skipped this point in the book.
To be honest, we didn’t have physical intimacy
– journalists convey the answer to the singer.
It is known that Packer and Carey wanted to have a wedding in the Caribbean and started preparing an event when suddenly James canceled the wedding. The singer said that she spent a huge amount on the preparation of the wedding ceremony, she threatened Packer with a court and demanded compensation in the amount of $ 50 million.
