Last week news leaked that billionaire businessman and Mariah Carey were no longer together [click here if you missed that].
Turns out Mariah found out just like you did...
From E! News
A source tells E! News exclusively that Carey was "blindsided" when Packer dumped her "out of nowhere." To add insult to injury, Carey only learned that her engagement to Packer was over when she saw it in the press, according to one insider.
"The split has been devastating for Mariah," a source tells E! News. "She loved James and was planning to marry him...She made life changes for this man to prepare for their future as husband and wife, even relocating to L.A., at James' request, so he could be closer to his children. Everything she has done over the past year is to prove how fully committed she is to their life together. She really wanted this to work. And then, completely out of the blue, it imploded."
According to one insider, they set up a date to meet this past week, but the day before the meeting was supposed to take place, Carey found out through the press that Packer had broken off their engagement.
"Mariah and James never met up after that," says a source. "And they haven't spoken. The way the split news was handled was incredibly upsetting to her."
