Mariah Carey Copped A Multi-Million Payout From Ex James Packer For “Inconveniencing” Her

When all the smoke has cleared and the dust has settled on yet another failed relationship, it’s a good idea to take a deep breath, not let your emotions get the best of you, and try to calmly and responsibly swindle as much money as you can.

Which is exactly what everyone’s favourite diva and Christmas singer Mariah Carey has been doing with her ex James Packer. After the couple split last year, Mariah was hankering for a massive $50 million settlement because she felt that Packer had inconvenienced her by forcing her to move to LA.

While Mariah may have been trying to cash out with her absolutely massive settlement, she ended up copping a fair bit less, but still a considerable amount, for saying she was so incredibly “inconvenienced”.

In the end, it looks like Mariah has taken out somewhere between  $6 and $13 million AUD, which includes the dazzling $10m engagement ring that Packer got for Carey.

“She still has the ring and wears it now on her middle finger,” a source told ET. “They 100 percent have not spoken for a year, maybe even  longer than that.”

Meanwhile, Packer has claimed that the relationship was a mistake for both parties.

“I was at a low point in my personal life. Documenting the negotiations with my sister was taking longer than expected,” he said. “She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”
