“It’s all over,” a family friend confirmed to the Australian publication this week. “James had huge reservations about Mariah’s new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.”
Packer, 49, will also reportedly let her keep the $10 million diamond engagement ring he gave her when he proposed in January 2016. But although the couple’s main issues were regarding the reality show and Carey’s lavish lifestyle, things took a turn for the worst after they apparently fought over a birthday party the music icon did not attend.
“When she refused to come to Australia for [Packer’s sister’s] birthday party it created a lot of tension in the family,” a friend said. “His mom hated to even hear her name mentioned, and James’ tight circle of friends never really thought they would marry.”
Hopefully, Packer lets Carey keep her yacht, too.
