Mariah Carey and James Packer set­tle­ment talks break down

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The singer and the bil­lion­aire busi­ness­man re­cently ended their en­gage­ment and were re­ported to be in ne­go­ti­a­tions for a fi­nan­cial set­tle­ment for Mariah, who wanted $50 mil­lion af­ter claim­ing she had to up­root her life and move to Los An­ge­les for him. TMZ re­ports that James in­sists there is "no le­gal ba­sis" for him to pay Mariah any­thing as they weren't mar­ried. How­ever, she has ac­cused him of be­ing a "ly­ing op­por­tunist" and claimed he used her fame to help se­cure lu­cra­tive busi­ness deals. Mariah, 46, was said to have been left "blind­sided" when James called off their en­gage­ment. A source re­cently said: "The split has been dev­as­tat­ing for Mariah. She loved James and was plan­ning to marry him. She made life changes for this man to pre­pare for their fu­ture as hus­band and wife, even re­lo­cat­ing to Los An­ge­les, at James' re­quest, so he could be closer to his chil­dren. "Ev­ery­thing she has done over the past year is to prove how fully com­mit­ted she is to their life to­gether. She re­ally wanted this to work. And then, com­pletely out of the blue, it im­ploded."
