The New York Daily News reports that Mariah Carey has contractually agreed to stay “positively silent” about her ex-fiancé James Packer in exchange for that generous settlement she received. Essentially Mariah agreed to a metric ton of hush money and a 35-carat ball-gag. James has also agreed to stay quiet, although he doesn’t have a giant diamond to help him with that.
The NYDN explains that per their agreement, Mariah and James will not “badmouth” one another if asked about their breakup. If Mariah plays nice, she keeps her ring and her cash. A source tells NYDN that this is what Mariah wanted.
“Mariah got what she wanted, which was essentially her engagement ring and a payout. It was not as much as people thought. And James wanted to make sure that they had a deal not to attack each other in public and keep things amicable…They are still not talking, but this is the best deal they can hope for.”
Sounds to me like James was sweating about what Mariah might spill. Now my curiosity is piqued. Especially considering that Mariah’s worrisome once-BFF and James’ once-business partner Brett Ratner is said to have brought them together. Is it possible that Mariah knows where some bodies are buried, so to speak? This is wild speculation on my part, but I’m a nosy bitch who lives for the drama.
NYDN reminds us that Mariah and James called off their engagement after they had a big fight while vacationing together in Greece. Oh to be a fly on the wall of that yacht. I’m positive the fight happened on a yacht. It’s the only way billionaires like to fight, right?
Alas, we’ll never know what really happened that balmy autumn night under a riot of Aegean stars. No matter how desperately anyone begs to hear the dirty details, they will only ever discuss themselves. That shouldn’t be a problem for Mariah; we all know how much Mariah likes to talk about Mariah.
