Mariah Carey's Billion Dollar Breakup

Mariah Carey and her billionaire fiancé James Packer have split. Let's get to the root of what went wrong, shall we?

First up, we have the official statement to Entertainment Tonight:
“Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since. The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together. They are discussing it, and plan to release an official statement together about their future.”

Next up, we have the source that blabbed to Page Six:
“They’ve been going through a rocky time, but it is not because of her excessive spending. Mariah been working all the time and he’s been out of the country taking care of his own business. They had a fight in Greece, and it isn’t clear if they are going to work things out.

James did not dump Mariah over money, nor her lavish spending. There’s no way this could be about excessive spending. Yes, she likes her hair and makeup done, and, of course she goes shopping, she might buy five pairs of Louboutins, but there’s no way her spending is excessive by his standards. He moves his icebreaker yacht from country to country on a whim, he regularly lends it to celebrities, if he wants pizza he moves it to Italy. He has a private jet, fully staffed houses in LA, Aspen, Argentina, and an island in Australia. He’s building another mega-yacht, and developing an island with Robert De Niro, and he has his movie deal with Warner Bros. All this wildly exceeds anything Mariah could spend on her wardrobe.

This isn’t a typical relationship, they spend months apart. He’s a billionaire and she’s Mariah Carey, they both travel all over the world and try to meet regularly somewhere in the middle. But recently it has been hard, she has been touring and next month she goes to Mexico then Hawaii, and she’s resuming her Beacon dates in New York for Christmas.”

Hmmm, methinks they doth protest a bit much about the spending there.

Finally, we have TMZ, who has sources from Mariah's camp saying that James "is not in his right mind" and "mentally unstable." Coming from someone who had an on-air breakdown on TRL, that's saying something! There's some murky story about a fight on a Greek yacht, James got "violent" (but no word on who that violence was directed towards), and an allegation that James did something to Mariah's assistant (maybe that's where the violence comes into play?). At any rate, TMZ gives the odds of a reconciliation at less than zero, with a fuck ton of bad blood on both sides.
