Romance with James Packer didn’t matter: Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey has revealed that she left former fiancé James Packer out of her new memoir because they didn’t have a ‘physical’ relationship.
Years after rumours first circulated that the pair didn’t consummate their 18-month romance, nine of which they spent engaged, the 50-year-old singing superstar told a news paper that theirs was a relationship that ‘didn’t matter’.
When asked why the Australian billionaire didn’t make an appearance in The Meaning of Mariah Carey, the star said: ‘If it was a relationship that mattered, it’s in the book. If not, it didn’t occur… We didn’t have a physical relationship, to be honest with you.
Elsewhere in her interview, the New York native addressed the persistent ‘diva’ and ‘high-maintenance’ tags that have followed her for much of her career, thanks in large part to her taste for the finer things in life. ‘You know what? I deserve to be at this point. That may sound arrogant, but I hope you frame it within the context of coming from nothing. If I can’t be high-maintenance after working my ass off my entire life, oh, I’m sorry – I didn’t realise we all had to be low-maintenance.’
When asked if she minded being called a diva, the Grammy winner responded: ‘No! Who cares? Honestly! “Oh my God, they’re calling me a diva – I think I’m going to cry!” You think in the grand scheme of things in my life that really matters to me, being called a diva? I am, bitches, that’s right!’
