Mariah Carey is reportedly demanding $50 million (£41 million) from her ex-fiance James Packer claiming he owes her the money because she ‘uprooted her entire life’ for him and his children.
The American diva and James split this week with friends close to the pair revealing that it was ‘all over’ because James was not happy with her reality TV show Mariah’s World and her decision to expose their lives to her fans.
But as more details emerge it is thought that Mariah has been left unhappy and wants compensation, with an insider alleging that James made her ‘move from New York to LA, uprooting her entire life, so he could be near his kids’, and that an incident involving her assistant left Mariah ‘traumatised’.
‘She claims the incident on the yacht in Greece – where she says he did something awful to her assistant – has traumatized Mariah so much she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour,’ writes TMZ, who also add that James reportedly ‘made various financial promises to her’.
Mariah had previously blamed the cancellation of her tour on concert promoters, tweeting: ‘Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be cancelled. My fans deserve better than how some of these promoters treated them (sic).’
