When I wrote my first post about the break-up between Mariah Carey and James Packer, I definitely forgot what year it was, because not one part of my brain thought that shit would make a sharp right turn on MESS Blvd. But dumb me forgot that in 2016, a celebrity break-up can’t happen without accusations of a trick acting a violent crazy mess. There were rumors that the Australian Herman Munster broke things off with the Empress of Photoshop because she cheated on him, spent too much of his money and was rude to his family. Mimi’s side is telling a much different story.
Sources on Mimi’s side tell TMZ that she had to leave James, because he’s “mentally unstable” and hasn’t been “present for her.” Mimi apparently knew it was time to fill out a death certificate for their relationship when James allegedly got violent with her assistant on a yacht in Mykonos last month. TMZ says that it’s one hundred percent over between them, but Mimi’s rep said that there’s a chance they may get back together. The rep spit out a statement to Entertainment Tonight, and in it, they admit that a fight happened in Greece, but deny that the fight was over the adventures of her wandering Hello Kitty or about her overspending his gold coins.
“Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since. The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together.”
James’ rep denies that he went crazy on her assistant, and one of his “sources” tells People that Mimi is trying to make him look like the monster when she’s the one who’s a wreck
“Typical Mariah to just twist things that don’t sound good to her. They split because she has issues. James is definitely an oddball, but a brilliant great guy. To put her issues on James is ridiculous. They definitely won’t be getting back together now.”
James was apparently obsessed with Mimi before he got with her, and if that’s true, he wasn’t very good at being a stalker. Because he should’ve know that Mimi is a dozen Hudson News locations in one Spanx’d up body. She’s got a million issues (see: the Mariah Carey tag on this site). That’s her charm.
Because of the way celebrity breaks-up have gone down this year, I’m bracing myself for this to get uglier and I’m waiting for a video to leak of one of them drunkenly punching everyone out on that yacht before jumping in the water and punching a dolphin to death. It’s bound to happen.
