A year after calling off their engagement, James Packer is finally speaking out about his breakup with Mariah Carey for the first time.
The couple first got together in 2015 and had plans to get married. Nine months after getting engaged, however, they called everything off in October 2016 while they were vacationing in Greece.
Talking about the break-up, James said, “I was at a low point in my personal life. She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But, it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”
A source said, “Mariah was totally blindsided by James. She read the news in Woman’s Day Australia that said he dumped her. Mariah knew they were having problems, but all relationships have issues — it wasn’t the kind of thing where she thought she’d read in the paper that she got dumped. She was devastated; she was shocked.”
