Sources close to Carey shut down rumors that Packer dumped the singer because she was fooling around with backup dancer Bryan Tanaka by claiming that she never goes to bed with men before getting hitched, according to TMZ reports.
Despite living together, the "Fantasy" singer and the Australian billionaire stayed in separate rooms at home and while jet setting because Carey is a "traditional girl," sources told TMZ.
Carey also enforced the rule with ex-husband and father to her twins, singer Nick Cannon, who waited until the night of their Bahamas honeymoon to consummate their relationship.
Carey and Packer's year-and-a half relationship imploded earlier this week after the two quarreled in September while on board the mogul's yacht in Greece. The 49-year-old business magnate reportedly dumped Carey because of her “extravagant spending” habits and over rumors she was hooking up with Tanaka.
The multi-platinum performer denied the cheating allegations while also demanding that Packer pay up $50 million, claiming their dramatic falling out harmed her career.
Carey says she made career-costing sacrifices for Packer, including that she uprooted from New York City to Los Angeles so that he could be near his children, TMZ reported.
The songstress also claims she was forced to cancel the South American leg of her world tour because she was so traumatized by a fight on the luxury liner that led to their break-up.
The $50 million demand comes after reports that Packer let Carey keep a $10 million engagement ring given to her after they got engaged in January of this year.
Carey was spotted at Malibu’s celebrity sushi haven Nobu on Thursday night with a skin-baring outfit and the gargantuan diamond rock still on her finger. She was accompanied by rumored fling Tanaka, according to photos on TMZ.
Carey’s upcoming E! reality show, “Mariah’s World,” is expected to air on Dec. 4 and her split with the business mogul reportedly sent executives in a tailspin earlier this week.
The main focus for the show is Carey’s career, but a subplot chronicle’s the former couple’s wedding plans.
