They enjoyed a flashy whirlwind romance which came to an abrupt end in October amidst rumours of her 'excessive spending'. But now settlement talks between Mariah Carey and James Packer have reportedly broken down after the mother-of-two 'accused him of being an opportunist and using her celebrity status to secure business deals'.
The singer, 46, and the billionaire businessman, 48, recently ended their engagement and were reported to be in negotiations for a financial settlement for Mariah, who is said to have wanted $50 million after claiming she had to uproot her life and move to Los Angeles for him.
But now TMZ reports that James insists there is 'no legal basis' for him to pay Mariah anything as they weren't married.
However, she has apparently accused him of being a 'lying opportunist' and claimed he used her fame to help secure lucrative business deals.
Mariah was said to have been left 'blindsided' when James called off their engagement.
