According to Page Six, Mariah Carey recently sold the diamond engagement given to her two-and-a-half years ago by her then-fiancé James Packer. The ring, which looks like a drink coaster from Liberace’s house, was reportedly a 35-carat diamond worth about $10 million. Mariah got to keep the ring as part of her million-dollar breakup settlement with James. But it sounds like Mariah was more than happy to remove that engagement ring from her collection of jewels.

She was not there to talk about her Australian billionaire ex’s possible involvement in a corruption scandal! Like Jennifer Lopez’s name, question marks twirl out of Mimi’s butterfly ears when someone brings up politics to her.
There are two indicators that the holiday season has begun. One would be July 5th (am I right, retail outlets?) and the other is Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” being played on a continuous loop everywhere and anywhere you go. Unfortunately, that song’s relentless and maddening yuletide joy might be a little dulled this year for the lamb leaderess. ET reports that Mimi feels that James Packer is trying to RUIN Christmas for her!
