A little over a month ago, news broke that ultimate diva Mariah Carey and her Australian billionaire fiancé James Packer officially split. Now People is reporting that Carey may already be moving on to a new romance with her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka. Who's the heartbreaker now?
Things seem to be moving pretty fast for the rumored couple. Tanaka allegedly joined Mariah and her family (including ex-husband Nick Cannon) for Thanksgiving in Hawaii this year, which sounds like a potential nightmare but looked like a sweet, sweet fantasy.
Rumors of Carey's and Tanaka's relationship have been swirling for months prior to Carey's split with Packer. Back in May, Carey pulled a then-injured Tanaka out of the audience for a lap dance during one of her concerts in South Africa, which must have been fun for Packer to discover.
Months later in October, TMZ reported that Packer confronted Tanaka backstage at one of Mariah's shows about their increasingly intimate relationship and ended up screaming at the backup dancer before kicking him out of the venue.
Oh yeah, then after Packer and Carey called off their engagement, Mariah and Tanaka were spotted out on the town together— even though she was still wearing her behemoth engagement ring. It was complicated.
Tanaka is set to be featured on Carey's upcoming reality show Mariah's World, but perhaps he will have a larger role than originally thought.
