Mariah Carey is once again a single lady.
The singer and her boyfriend/back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka have called off their love affair after five months of dating. The news came at us quite suddenly, considering just a week ago, Mimi and Tanaka were all boo’ed up on a tropical getaway to celebrate Mariah’s 47 birthday…oops, we meant “anniversary.”
Word on the curb is that Tanaka’s jealousy of Mariah’s co-parenting relationship with ex-husband Nick Cannon did them in. His alleged frivolous spending is also rumored to have played a role in their demise.
As seen on Carey’s E! docu-series (that’s wealthy speak for reality show), Mariah’s World, the backup dancer flirted his way into his boss’ heart just as her engagement to billionaire ex-fiancé James Packer came to a screeching halt. Mariah ditched the massive diamond ring and was spotted on romantic Hawaiian getaway with Tanaka in no time. Mariah confirmed that she and Tanaka were an item in a February interview with Associated Press.
If we know Mariah as well as we think, no breakup will hold her down. Congrats Mimi on becoming single, sexy and free!
