Mariah Carey Bryan Tanaka

Mariah Carey and her boy toy Bryan Tanaka have apparently split. The 47-year-old pop Diva began dating Tanaka, 33, on the rebound after her embarrassing split from her fiancé, Australian billionaire James Packer, last year.

Tanaka worked as a dancer on Mariah’s Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour in 2016. He reportedly caught Mariah’s fancy and she exploited the younger man by posing for numerous staged pictures on a beach in Hawaii in November.

Sources tell TMZ.com the cause of the split was Bryan’s insane jealousy over Mariah’s close relationship with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, the father of her five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe Cannon.

The “last straw” came at the Kids’ Choice Awards last month, when Mariah, Nick and the twins posed on the orange carpet in coordinating outfits. Tanaka reportedly felt “disrespected” and voiced his displeasure.

Mariah reportedly signed Tanaka to play her romantic interest on her E! reality show Mariah’s World, which was poorly rated despite all the drama from her breakup from Packer.

The reality show ended with Mariah dramatically removing her engagement ring during the season finale which aired in January.

    I actually thought her show wasn’t that bad. I caught it by mistake one day. She didn’t come off nearly as pretentious and aggravating to me as she does in the press. Actually, she was THE most down to earth person ON the show… the people around her had more diva attitudes than she did. And this dude is a fool. Who gives up a shot with a billion dollars feeling “disrespected” because your woman gets along with the father of her children. RUN, Mariah… any man with the expectation that you have a hateful, dysfunctional relationship with the father of your child
    is just as childish and shameful as the women who have that expectation of their men.

  • YellowSauce

    I’m SO shocked … I thought they would make it last forever and ever …. lololololol

  • stav

    This is some conjured up lie from her Russian manager, as was the faux relationship to begin with. Mariah just keep drinking your champagne and stay out of the media, don’t record any garbage music, and just realize your singing career is over here. Go overseas and live off of performing your old hits!

  • YellowSauce

    SHE is so weird …. lol

  • Tahj

    I thought it was ok as well. I mean she is crazy FO SURE. But the show wasnt that bad. It just proved to me what I thought all along…. MiMi is CRAY CRAY

  • YellowSauce

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    When you have a break up, learn to sit down.
    SIT DOWN.

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    Yep! With the quickness ????

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I know right?! Mariah needs to have several seats. She’s like that Auntie that everybody knows lives the fast life and switch partners like she switches underwear. U be like Auntie grow up and stop being messy and get yo life together. Yeap Mariah is too old to be trying to be out and about like that.

  • Yardgirl

    Me too! :-))

  • Justlooknout

    Yes, you are correct. I may have to go back and catch up. I really enjoyed it as well. Her manager was a complete Biotch. HATER HER.

  • Renee26

    Screw the dancers don’t get involved with them like that….she didn’t learn from Brittany or Janet’s experiences I guess

  • Renee26

    Who gives up a shot with a billion dollars feeling “disrespected” because your woman gets along with the father of her children……….The insecure type of man; there are sooo many of them out here. When the woman makes more money then they do they want to stick their chests out to remind her of who the man is.

  • Yetunde

    I don’t think anyone thought this was a long term thing anyway. This comes as no surprise.

  • Miami8981

    It really makes me wonder about the intelligence of some folk who buy into fake relationships.

    The relationship did not come to an end after 5 months. The publicity stunt came to an end after 5 months.

    Seriously. Who gets engaged, then the man dumps you and 2 weeks after you’re dumped you are in a new relationship? People. Focus. It’s called PUBLICITY STUNT RELATIONSHIP 101 to take the embarrassment and press coverage off of Mariah after getting dumped.

  • Miami8981

    And speaking of breathing. Can someone please tell Jennifer Lopez to sit her non-talented arse down? This woman has serious head issues. She is another one that will get out of a relationship and be in a new relationship two weeks later. Why? To save face in the eye of publicity driven media? This chick is delusional and needs to find peace within herself, learn how to respect and appreciate herself and close her damned legs for longer than a year at time. It’s called self-healing, boo-lo.

  • T Kenny

    almost summer time… whos next to break up? hope yall enjoyed cuddle up bae winter season ?

  • Hmmm~?

    I didn’t even know she had a TV show.

  • Guest who

    Idk why people keep saying she should sit down why??? She’s still a beautiful and vibrant woman. Older and heavier yes but why should she be alone. She’s financially secure with two adorable kids that she takes care of and a good relationship with their father. Why shouldn’t she have fun dating and trying out what works for her. She wants and needs emotional and physical companionship just like every person on the planet calm down. IMO

  • Rhyme and Reason

    People go by public personas, when people are all basically the same, no real mystery in life! She puts her kids first, over her relationships because when they were in the midst of their heated divorce and settlement, they co-parent, publicly!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Nope, they’re celebrating her jumping around and love her teaming up with A-Rod! But, Mariah’s crazy, OK!

  • Chocolate diva

    He isn’t like that at all. I know him. People are fast to judge or listen and believe everything they hear.
