[Blind Gossip] Are you wondering who is leaking the private correspondence between this singer and her former big fish fiance?
It’s the singer herself!
Why is she doing this? Because she thinks this embarrassment will force open his wallet.
The real reason she is going after his money is quite interesting… and is a completely different story from what you are reading in the media!
The story you are reading in the news (that she wants to be compensated for moving cross country) is bogus.
What really happened was that she was negotiating with [Her Ex Husband] to finalize their divorce. The last number I heard was around $30 million. Anyway, [Her Fiance] told her, “Hey, just pay out whatever you have to and don’t worry about the money because we’re going to be married soon and the $30 million will seem like nothing.” So she paid out this huge settlement to [Her Ex Husband] because she thought she had this new marriage all sewed up. Then he broke up with her.
She went batsh*t crazy. She would NEVER NEVER have given [Her Ex Husband] so much if she wasn’t sure she was going to get it back! Now she feels like she got screwed and somebody owes her $30 million. She is the one who is leaking those private notes. He’d better watch out because she will run him over if she has to to get her hands on that money!

That was fast!
It seems like just yesterday that we told you that Mariah Carey signed off on her divorce with Nick Cannon and gave him a huge payout was because James Packer had assured her that the $30 million would soon “seem like nothing.”
Oh, wait. It WAS just yesterday.
Anyway, it turns out that the reason the settlement would “seem like nothing” was because Carey and Packer had already negotiated a $50 million premarital agreement for their marriage!
Carey and Packer could not get married until Carey was divorced from Cannon, so Carey went ahead and made the payment to Cannon and signed the divorce papers.
Very unfortunately for Carey, Packer broke up with her a few days later. Yes, her big fish just released himself from the hook and swam away. Ouch! So Carey had just paid out approximately $30 million to Cannon… and now had no chance of scoring that $50 million!
That’s why she went batsh*t crazy! That’s why she threatened to sue Packer for $50 million! And that’s shy she is now hounding him by releasing their private correspondence!
TMZ is now confirming ALL of this (except for the exact amount of the payout to Cannon).
Mariah Carey has demanded $50 million from ex-fiance James Packer because that is the amount she would have walked away with had they signed their prenup.
TMZ has seen an email chain from back in mid-February going back and forth, from Mariah’s team to Packer’s. The billionaire was clearly itching to tie the knot with Mariah, upset that his people were not moving fast enough to nail down the prenup so he could marry her on March 1st in Bora Bora.
Packer’s lawyers clearly felt the prenup was complicated, sending Mariah’s team a 100 page document outlining the specifics. The details in the document are fascinating. Among the many conditions … if Packer gave Mariah a piece of jewelry or anything else, she would have to give it back if they broke up UNLESS he sent her a signed note saying it was a gift.
The prenup draft also provided that Mariah would get $50 mil if they broke up. TMZ broke the story, that’s exactly the amount she’s demanding from him now.
Short story … Packer’s lawyers were telling him they could not get the prenup signed, sealed and delivered by March 1st. His response … “I don’t know who’s working for who because there are a lot of names I haven’t heard before on this email chain. The people who work for me — message — do as I say or f*** off. I want to get married on March 1st. James.”
We’re told at the time of the email chain, Mariah already had a dress, the flowers were ordered and all the flights for the guests were secured.
BTW … there was no way they could marry, because Nick Cannon hadn’t signed the divorce docs. Mariah and James knew this, but they were going to call the wedding a “commitment ceremony” and pass themselves off as husband and wife.
The prenup was never signed, and Mariah believes that’s when his people started trying to tear them apart.
Note that the prenup was never signed and Carey and Packer never legally married (nor even held a commitment ceremony) so we don’t know what kind of legal claim Carey has to that $50 million. Clearly, though, it’s not stopping her from doing whatever she has to do to get her hands on it!
Congratulations to Deadpan Alley and Cheezhead and Ashenean for being first!
