Mariah Carey and James Packer have decided to put their wedding on hold as the couple is, reportedly, on the verge of a breakup. The couple recently took a vacation in Mykonos in a desperate bid to save their crumbling relationship.
Mariah Carey and Packer started dating in summer 2015. In January, Packer popped the question to Carey with a 35-Carat diamond engagement ring. Carey immediately got on to planning her lavish wedding, and she even had her wedding dress picked out. However, things haven’t remained the same since, and the relationship started rolling downhill.
“The trip was a last-ditch effort to save their romance,” a source close to the couple was quoted as saying by Radar Online. “They’re struggling.”
Mariah Carey and James Packer are no more willing to speed up the wedding. In June, Carey explained the delay, saying the wedding plans are taking a lot of time.
“We’re getting it together, darling,” Carey was quoted as saying by the E! News. “You know what? It’s time. The dress and the whole thing. I’m working and he’s working and everyone puts so much pressure.”
According to other sources, Carey’s ex-husband Nick Cannon, with whom she was married from 2008 to 2015, hasn’t yet signed the divorce papers. As a result, Carey’s engagement to Packer felt the strain. According to the source, Packer really wants the divorce to be finalized.
However, Cannon sad, “I wish it was that easy where you can just sign something and say, ‘Oh, I’m done,’ but it’s a lot of things that go with that that are beyond my control.”
He added, “The only thing that’s important to me is my children. I want what’s best for them. I believe my ex feels the exact same way.”
Packer also doesn’t want to be a part of Carey’s upcoming E! reality show, according to the source.
