Mariah Carey had wed­ding de­lay guilt

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE. -

Mariah Carey wor­ried about "dis­ap­point­ing" James Packer when she post­poned their wed­ding. The 'Hero' hit­maker and her man­ager Stella were con­cerned that jug­gling plans for the nup­tials - which were ul­ti­mately can­celled as the cou­ple split in Oc­to­ber - with her Euro­pean tour were too stressful, so felt it for the best to de­lay the cer­e­mony un­til Mariah's pro­fes­sional com­mit­ments were ful­filled. Stella asked: "I feel like you'll be putting your pro­fes­sional life be­fore your per­sonal life and it makes me feel bad but dare I say, do you post­pone the wed­ding?" Mariah ad­mit­ted: "It is slightly over­whelm­ing be­cause we are pretty much putting to­gether this en­tire tour in two weeks. You know...there's a lot to think about." Later in the open­ing episode of the 46-year-old star's new re­al­ity show, 'Mariah's World', Mariah said: "I just...I don't...I don't know be­cause he keeps ask­ing what we're do­ing with the dates and when he asks...I don't want to dis­ap­point him and I feel re­ally bad. "And so now I'm sit­ting here go­ing, 'How do I even do this?' " Stella re­as­sured her client that the Aus­tralian bil­lion­aire loves her "so much" and is al­ways "sup­port­ive" of her de­ci­sions, prompt­ing Mariah to say: "OK, maybe we do the tour and then fig­ure it out after­wards and do it right. You know it's not an easy call to make. "This is a hard de­ci­sion to make, I'm not sit­ting around like, 'Oh just blow off the wed­ding.' I'm sit­ting here go­ing, 'How am I sup­posed to ful­fill my pro­fes­sional obli­ga­tions and not dis­ap­point James?'" Mariah then called James to break the news, and later ad­mit­ted: "I feel bad be­cause I know I've dis­ap­pointed James by post­pon­ing the wed­ding. But what I need to fo­cus on right now is this tour." But it wasn't just be­cause of the tour that Stella wanted the 'Fantasy' hit­maker to de­lay the wed­ding, as she also had con­cerns about the pre-nup­tial agree­ment the busi­ness­man had had drawn up. She ad­mit­ted: "I'm ac­tu­ally re­lieved that Mariah wants to post­pone her wed­ding be­cause I've been deal­ing with this pre-nup and it's def­i­nitely not the most ro­man­tic thing I've read I'll tell you that. "So I feel like we should meet our pro­fes­sional obli­ga­tions first be­fore jump­ing into any per­sonal com­mit­ments at this mo­ment." Af­ter the cou­ple split, it was re­vealed the doc­u­ment in­cluded clauses that James would not pay for clothes for Mariah and her ex-hus­band Nick Can­non's fiveyear-old twins Moroc­can and Mon­roe, any gift worth over $250,000 had to be ac­com­pa­nied by a note stat­ing it was a present or the giver re­tained own­er­ship, and the in­vestor had to ap­prove the 'One Sweet Day' singer's re­quests to use a pri­vate jet for her own use.

Lit­tle Mix are "in talks" for a doc­u­men­tary about their lives. The 'Shout Out to My Ex' hit­mak­ers - com­prised of Per­rie Ed­wards, Jesy Nel­son, Jade Thirl­wall, and Leigh-Anne Pin­nock - are set to tell all in the new tele­vi­sion show, which aims to de­tail their "per­son­al­i­ties" and give fans an in­sight into their lives out­side of the mu­sic in­dus­try. Jesy, 25, told the Daily Mir­ror news­pa­per: "We are in talks at the mo­ment. We re­ally want to do a doc­u­men­tary as we feel peo­ple do not know much about us. "They know our songs and have seen us per­form but they don't know our per­son­al­i­ties, so we would love to do a doc­u­men­tary. "We want to get some­one to fol­low us around on this whole tour for a whole year." But Leigh-Anne, also 25, is con­cerned they won't en­joy hav­ing cam­eras fol­low­ing them ev­ery­where they go, but ad­mits it "will be good" for fans to get a first hand look at the "drama" in their lives. She told the pub­li­ca­tion: "Maybe we are say­ing this now but when it comes to it and the cam­era is be­ing rammed in our faces we will be like, 'Leave us alone'. "And the drama. There is al­ways drama in our lives. "Hon­estly we ac­tu­ally don't ever get it on cam­era, do we? So that will be good for peo­ple to see that." The doc­u­men­tary is ex­pected to be filmed in fly-on-the-wall style, mean­ing the cam­eras will be present in the room whilst the girls talk as they nor­mally would. Doc­u­men­tary bosses are hop­ing this will help lift the lid on Jesy's re­cent claimed there was "no go­ing back" for the pair. An in­sider said pre­vi­ously: "It's over as far as Jesy's con­cerned and there's no go­ing back. The wed­ding is off and her en­gage­ment ring won't be go­ing back on. Jesy's so busy with her ca­reer and she's throw­ing her­self into work."
