Mariah Carey Reportedly Breaks Up With Boyfriend Over Nick Cannon
TMZ reports that Mariah Carey has split up with boyfriend Bryan Tanaka due to, among other things, her continued friendship with ex-husband Nick Cannon. Tanaka was said to be very jealous that she remained friendly with him for the benefit of their children. They go on vacations together as a family, along with dinner and parties. Sometimes they even hang out without the children. All of this reportedly made Tanaka very angry, so he would flirt and come onto other women right in front of Carey. Tanaka felt “disrespected” after Carey and Cannon took their twins to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards last month. He actually demanded she return home during the event.
Meanwhile, Carey is sick of paying for expensive items for Tanaka, including brands like Gucci and Balmain. He also enjoys buying expensive shoes, jewelry, watches and chains, which were usually purchased by Carey. She felt that Tanaka moved in after she broke up with James Packer because he wanted to get famous. They haven’t seen each other or talked since they went to Cabo at the end of March. They dated for over five months.
