Billionaire casino mogul James Packer has dumped fiancé, pop star Mariah Carey after falling out over her new reality TV show and extravagant spending.
The tycoon is understood to have walked away from the singer as she prepares to expose much of her glittering life on a new reality TV show, allowing her to keep the $10m diamond engagement ring he gave her in January.
“It’s all over,” confirms one close family friend.
“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.”
The news comes as no great shock to friends and relatives of the Packer family who have had reservations about the relationship ever since James started wooing the flamboyant singer in Las Vegas last year.
