Mariah Carey didn’t have sex with her billionaire fiancé James Packer, according to her new book.
The “Touch My Body” singer and James got engaged in January 2016 after a whirlwind romance – but they called off their wedding that October without explanation.
Mariah never mentioned her relationship with the Australian media mogul in her new memoir, and the star says that’s because their engagement has no significance to her, as they never had a “physical relationship”.
“If it was a relationship that mattered, it’s in the book. If not, it didn’t occur,” she tells The Guardian. “We didn’t have a physical relationship, to be honest with you.”
This may explain why James packed up his things and left Mariah standing at the altar. A man can only hold his horses for so long.
The 50-year-old Aries previously claimed she only slept with five people in her life. She was married twice – to Tommy Mottola and Nick Cannon – and shares 2 kids with Nick. She is currently in a relationship with her back-up dancer and choreographer Bryan Tanaka, 37.
Asked if she agrees with claims that she’s “high-maintenance,” Mariah snapped, “You know what? I don’t give a s**t. I f**king am high-maintenance because I deserve to be at this point. That may sound arrogant, but I hope you frame it within the context of coming from nothing.”
She added: “If I can’t be high-maintenance after working my a** off my entire life, oh, I’m sorry – I didn’t realize we all had to be low-maintenance. Hell, no! I was always high-maintenance, it’s just I didn’t have anyone to do the maintenance when I was growing up!”
Mariah’s memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, is in stores now.
