While our Christmas season will be notably devoid of a certain someone’s whistle register (or attempts at it), the “Don’t Call Me the” Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey has received an early present from Santa James Packer: cold hard cash. And diamonds.
The Blast reports Mariah and James have reached a settlement in their divorce oh, wait, that’s right…THEY WERE NEVER EVEN MARRIED! Mariah previously sought $50 million for her “troubles” for moving to Los Angeles. Most people move to L.A. just for In-N-Out while they live in some studio in the Valley with eighteen people they met on Craigslist hoping to make it as a star, or at least a Vanderpump Rules extra. Mariah was living the life of luxury, so I don’t really see what these “troubles” were. Maybe she just doesn’t like the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf?
Anywho, James was coy a few weeks ago when asked the ring. The Blast says that Mimi did keep the ring and got a settlement that was much less than the $50 million she wanted. The real figure is somewhere between $5 million and $10 million, including that ring. Speaking of that, apparently the ring isn’t worth $10 million, like originally reported. Wouldn’t that be a gas if James just grabbed some CZ thing that was hawked on HSN after one of Mimi’s disastrous(ly wonderful) appearances? The timing for this couldn’t be better, as Mariah has had to cancel a slew of Christmas shows. Until this settlement came along, how was she going to pay to feed and clothe her chew toy Bryan Tanaka?!
