Mariah Carey and James Packer Break Up

Mariah Carey and James Packer Have Split

Update: Mariah Carey's rep released a statement to ET about the split, confirming that the two haven't seen each other since they had an argument in Greece last month. "The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah," the rep explained. "They are trying to work it out. Right now, they're not sure if they will stay together." The rep also said they plan on releasing a joint statement once they've determined their future.

Mariah Carey and James Packer have called it quits — at least for now. A source tells People that the couple, who got engaged back in January, "split a couple of weeks ago," adding: "It's possible they will get back together. They are still talking, but James needed a break." While the Australian billionaire is known for his wealth, the source reveals that he wasn't a fan of Mariah's "eccentric ways." The news comes just before the premiere of the singer's upcoming E! docuseries, Mariah's World, which follows her tour and wedding planning. "James is very private, and doesn't need the media to be successful," the source added. "He doesn't want to be a part of Mariah's reality show."
