All Mariah Carey Wants for Christ­mas is a $22 Mil­lion Airbnb, re­port­edly

The Star (St. Lucia) - - INTERNATIONAL -

M ariah Carey and her for­mer fi­ancé James Packer broke things off in Oc­to­ber, and Mimi’s life has changed a lot in the past two months. Since she re­port­edly started dat­ing backup dancer Bryan Tanaka, Carey has been spend­ing much of her time with him. Ac­cord­ing to E! News, he makes many ap­pear­ances in her show Mariah’s World (dur­ing one, an emo­tional con­fes­sional, he heaps praise on the singer). And now, US Weekly is re­port­ing that the two are spend­ing Christ­mas to­gether with Carey’s twins, Mon­roe and Moroc­can, in a $22 mil­lion Airbnb in Aspen, Colorado.

US re­ports that Carey, who just wrapped her an­nual “All I Want for Christ­mas Is You” con­cert se­ries, will be ski­ing on Aspen High­lands Moun­tains when she’s not cud­dling with her fam­ily and Tanaka in the afore­men­tioned luxe Airbnb. While it may sur­prise some to hear that the singer will re­port­edly be with Tanaka this Christ­mas, given that she and Packer just broke up a few months ago, this is only the most re­cent de­vel­op­ment in Carey’s new re­la­tion­ship.

At the Mariah’s World pre­miere party ear­lier this month, Carey’s man­ager Stella Bu­lochnikov told E! News about the duo’s chem­istry: “Well, when you’re Mariah Carey, you’re one of the most cov­eted women in the world so I can’t blame Tanaka for hav­ing a crush on her. We’ll have to wait and see if he puts the moves on her.”

But re­ports have long been sur­fac­ing that Tanaka might have al­ready done so. In late Novem­ber, US Weekly re­ported that Tanaka and Carey were spot­ted kiss­ing on the beach in Maui: “They swam in the ocean and he picked her up to kiss her,” a source told the mag­a­zine. “She was jump­ing into his arms, and he bent her back over his knee like they were danc­ing.” Pho­tos from the oc­ca­sion also sur­faced in out­lets like the Daily Mail.

At the pre­miere party for Mariah’s World, Tanaka him­self had a few words about Carey, telling E! News: “I’ve al­ways had a thing for Mariah. I love her so much . . . We’ve al­ways had a con­nec­tion; there’s just a mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion. She saw some­thing in me that I ac­tu­ally didn’t rec­og­nize at first. From that it, it was over, it was set in his­tory that we were go­ing to be con­nected in some way some how.”

But when the re­porter prompted Tanaka about his steamy beach mo­ment with Carey, he sim­ply said, “You’re gonna have to tune in for all that stuff.”

Tanaka ap­pears to be fit­ting swim­mingly into Carey’s life, what with the Christ­mas-in-Aspen cel­e­bra­tion and the Kris Jen­ner-es­que teasers for her show. Cheers to the happy cou­ple in their cozy Airbnb. Also: James Packer who?

Mimi’s had a few new de­vel­op­ments since break­ing things off with her fi­ancé.
