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?


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
