It looks like there is no hope left for Mariah Carey and James Packer. After their public split last October 2016, rumors of reconciliation made headlines. However, it seems like that is far off now.
The Hero singer first met the Australian businessman in Aspen in 2014. She revealed that she feels “lucky” to have Packer because he is a “great” person. After their two years of relationship, the couple called off their engagement. Some reasons include Carey’s tendency to overspend and Packer’s short temper.
Mariah Carey And James Packer: Her extravagant Ways vs. His temper

Us Magazine stated several reasons why the couple broke up. One was Carey and her lavish ways of spending. According to Us Magazine, Packer may be born into a well-off family but he was “not used to that level of spending.” A source even said that Carey got Packer to pick up some of her bills, leading to him manage her affairs and come up with ways on how she could make more money.
Another reason was Packer’s temper. A source claimed that Packer swept Carey off her feet by being the perfect gentleman. However, the casino mogul began to show a darker side as the relationship progressed. The source said that Packer would “get angry at the smallest things”. One of the things that Packer got angry at was Carey’s closeness with her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka. It was quickly cleared that Carey and Tanaka were simply close and not romantically involved.
But the most cited reason for the ex-couple’s split was their fight in Greece. Mariah Carey and James Packer were on a vacation in Greece when the fight broke out. The reason for the argument involved one of Carey’s assistants, causing Carey to immediately head back to LA. Ever since then, the couple were not seen together anymore.
Burning The Wedding Dress: It Really Is Over
In Carey’s music video for her new song I Don’t, she’s seen wearing a form-fitting red dress while burning an ivory-colored wedding dress. According to Stuff, sources claim that the bridal gown was not just an ordinary prop. It’s the wedding gown that the Touch My Body singer planned to wear for her supposed-to-be wedding. TMZ also reported that the gown was a custom-made Valentino that costs $250,000.
In addition to the wedding dress, the music video for I Don’t was shot in the former mansion of Mariah Carey and James Packer in Calabasas, California. Sounds like Carey is determined to burn her ex after breaking up with her.
