Break Up: Mariah Carey Over Playing Sugar Momma To Young Lover Bryan Tanaka

Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka

Five months after dating, Mariah Carey and her backup dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka are splitting up.

TMZ cites two reasons for the break up. One of the reasons was Tanaka’s expensive taste in material things on Carey’s dime.  How can you go from dating billionaire James Packer, who most likely bought her everything, to a struggling dancer making ends meet? Of course the romance was funded by Mariah and she eventually grew tired of shelling out the cash for jewelry, shoes and watches for her boy toy.

It’s also reported that Tanaka was jealous of the “Bye Bye” singer’s close relationship with her ex-husband Nick Cannon. Things heated up when the backup dancer felt “disrespected” by Carey’s appearance with the twins and Cannon at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. Tanaka would pay back the gesture by flirting with other women in front of the singer.

It seems the breakup was mutual.

Should Carey have expected to fund this new romance with the help?
