More details have come out about why Mariah Carey has split from her billionaire fiance James Parker and it has nothing to do with “spending” habits.

On Thursday, representatives for the 46-year-old pop singer say it was her fiance’s “mental health” issues that lead to the two breaking up, following an incident on their vacation in Greece, according to People. (RELATED: Mariah Carey Allegedly Dumped By Fiance Over ‘Spending’ Habits)

“James has not been in a mentally healthy place and has not been present for Mariah or her family,” a source told the outlet. “His behavior was not a desirable situation for Mariah so she unfortunately had to leave him.” (RELATED: Mariah Carey’s Topless Billboards Banned At Two Southern California Airports)

“James is all about business and making money,” a source close to the Packer family said. “Some of Mariah’s eccentric ways, especially her spending habits, caused drama.” Adding, “They don’t like her at all and never have.”

As previously reported, a representative with Packer told Women’s Daily in Australia the separation was over her “extravagant spending” and a her involvement with reality TV.

Sources tell the outlet that what might have been the final straw in the relationship also was when Carey was in Vegas and cameras caught “some type of rendezvous” with one of her dancers in her Las Vegas show.


The singer’s reality show is also reportedly in jeopardy now with couple’s relationship ending. According to NY Daily News, the entertainment channel E! News executives are worried about the split and how it will affect the launch of her reality show “Mariah’s World,” which is set to start December 4.
