Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

It ap­pears Mariah Carey’s bank bal­ance is strug­gling to keep up with her lav­ish life­style! The star, who was worth $650 mil­lion in 2011, is re­port­edly strug­gling to sell tick­ets to the open­ing night of her Las Vegas res­i­dency next month – so much so “even the scalpers who bought a bunch of tick­ets are freak­ing out”. This comes af­ter the singer, 48, “qui­etly” off­loaded her $13 mil­lion, 35-carat di­a­mond en­gage­ment ring from James Packer for just $2.75 mil­lion.

“Mariah has been very vo­cal about her choice to move for­ward,” her pub­li­cist in­sists. “That re­quires leav­ing bag­gage be­hind, in­clud­ing an old en­gage­ment ring from an ex-boyfriend.”

Sources also tell us that dur­ing her US tour last year, Mariah didn’t use her usual pri­vate jet and in­stead trav­elled by bus – and was even seen stop­ping at bud­get Chi­nese restau­rant PF Chang’s in El Paso, Texas, dur­ing a 21-hour drive be­tween gigs in Los An­ge­les and Dal­las.

It’s cer­tainly a far cry from the diva be­hav­iour we’ve be­come used to!

Is Mariah feel­ing the pinch?
