Mariah Carey and her young boo thang Bryan Tanaka have officially called it quits after just five months of dating. But the real question is: Was their romance even real?
According to reports, the pair ended their short-lived romance because of jealousy and money. Per TMZ, Tanaka was not a fan of Carey’s close, tight-knit relationship with her ex-husband, Nick Cannon.
Granted, the singer’s friendship with Nick is purely based on remaining cordial for their two children, but apparently, Bryan was not thrilled about how close the exes became. The final straw was reportedly when Nick and Mariah took the kids together to the Kids’ Choice Awards last month.
The dancer reportedly felt so disrespected by the foursome’s famous and candid moments, he “demanded” Carey return home.
The second thing that allegedly pulled the pair apart was Tanaka’s constant desire to shop for expensive jewelry and shoes. Per reports, Carey was over constantly footing the bill for the 33-year-old.
The split, which comes just days after the pair celebrated Mariah’s birthday in Cabo, doesn’t exactly come as a shock.
Carey and Tanaka started dating almost immediately following the singer’s breakup from her billionaire fiancé, James Packer. In fact, it was reported that their friendship sparked problems between Carey and Packer.
It’s also worth noting that the flirtation between the Grammy Award winner and her backup dancer began on camera during the diva’s reality show, Mariah’s World. So maybe it was a ploy for ratings?
Sound off: Was their love real? Or just a quick PR stunt?
