“All I want for Christmas is you!” Well, not for James Packer.
James Packer says his relationship with Mariah Carey was a “mistake.” In an interview with Weekend Australia magazine published on Friday, the billionaire businessman opened up about his engagement with Carey, claiming that he was at a “low point” in his life when the two were together. Ouch! That is not flattering at all.
“I was at a low point in my personal life,” Packer shared. “She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”
Packer and Carey started dating in 2015 and split in October 2016, just nine months after announcing their engagement. The pair’s breakup wasn’t pretty — in a statement to ET at the time, Carey’s rep said the two hadn’t seen each other since having a fight in Greece.
“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.” This is confusing and contradicting. If someone was a mistake (meaning an error), I would assume, then how comes one cannot be sure if they will remain together? If someone told me that I was a ‘mistake’ then I would exit the relationship; to me that’s kinda insulting. If I am a mistake or if I chose someone mistakenly to be with, the odds are we will continuously to fight or be unhappy.
He further said in the interview : “I get on exceptionally well with my two ex-wives,” he said, adding that he still regrets losing the mother of his three children, Indigo, 9, Emmanuelle, 5, and Jackson, 7. “It is my biggest regret that I let my marriage to Erica fail. It is what it is, and she is doing an incredible job with the kids and we are in a great place.”
So why try to work it out with Mariah Carey if you are at peace with your ex-wives? Isn’t this signalling something is perhaps wrong with your relationship with Mariah Carey? Why is Carey even allowing this man to indirectly insult her? Carey is one of the greatest and posses one of the sweetest voices in history. She is a strong vocalist who could do better. At this point in their lives, they should be happy and relaxing with their ‘rightful’ partner.
Nevertheless, I like Mariah’s songs such as “Touch My Body”, “Obsessed”, “My All” and ” Without You.” What’s your favorite song by the diva?
