Mariah Carey Gets Millions From Ex For “Inconveniencing” Her
Mariah Carey just got richer.
When Mariah Carey and her ex-fiance billionaire James Packer split last year, the diva demanded $50 million for the “inconvenience” of moving from NYC to Los Angeles to be with Packer. As ridiculous as that sounded at the time, it turns out Packer did end up settling with his ex-fiancé just recently.
The Blast is reporting that Packer and Carey settled a few months ago, but it was a far cry from the $50 million she demanded. The “One Sweet Day” singer added another $5 to $10 million to her bank account from the settlement which includes keeping the 35-carat engagement ring she often still flaunts in public. However, the bling may not be as expensive as originally estimated. A Blast source told the outlet the ring is worth less than $10 million.
Carey and Packer were engaged after less than a year of dating. They broke up last year in October. A few months ago, Packer told The Australian it was a mistake dating the songstress when he was at a low point in his personal life.
“She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”
Could his decision to speak out on the soured relationship a few months ago be timed to having to fork over some serious coin which coincidentally was a few months ago as well.
