A photo of Mariah Carey seen hugging another man made headlines and stirred rumors that she might be cheating on her beau James Packer.
“Hey Sweden glad to be back to see u,” the 46-year-old “Touch My Body” singer captioned the Instagram photo in question, in which she was with a man who reportedly looked like Nick Gordon.
According to Radar Online, the man who was said to be all eyes on her booty while she was wearing a lingerie-like ensemble was her creative director and backup dancer, Anthony Burrell.
Fans who spotted the photo questioned why she would display herself like that to another man and even hug him. Several fans aired out their comments. “Um, where is her fiancé,” wrote one follower who seemed concern about her billionaire husband-to-be.
Meanwhile, in response to Radar Online article, commenter Adrian Thomas emphasized that “Mariah has always been faithful so I highly doubt she would jeopardize her new-found love with James for a fling with one of her crew members. This is an innocent picture.”
In the meantime, People reported that the “Butterfly” artist’s controversial snap, which shows her in champagne-colored satin blazer and a pair of black tights while wearing slip-on stilettos, was taken in Sweden as she was in the country for a music tour.
It can be recalled that Mariah Carey had to cancel her show in Brussels for her “#1 To Infinity” album Europe tour last month due a terror attack. “I love my fans in Brussels and at this time I am being advised to cancel my shows for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour,” she wrote then on her Instagram page when the announcement of her show’s cancellation was made.
“I hope to see you soon and send my prayers and eternal love, laughter and light to my Lambs,” Mariah Carey added.
