Mariah Carey has accused ex-fiance James Packer of being a “lying opportunist”, with threats of lawsuits flying around.
According to TMZ, Mariah demanded $50 million from James, claiming he uprooted her life from New York and caused her emotional distress that caused her to cancel the South American leg of her world tour.
Sources said the tour cancellations were due to poor ticket sales, not distress.
TMZ reports James has now drawn the line, claiming he owes Mariah nothing as they were never married and there’s no legal basis for him to pay her a penny.
Mariah has a very different view. Our Mariah sources say James used her to secure business, and dragged her to various meetings to meet important people, including foreign dignitaries, so he could seal some lucrative deals. She believes she’s entitled to a cut.
Mariah is however reportedly holding the line, demanding $50 million.
But James sources say if he pays her anything it will be to shut her up and get her out of his hair.
