According to TMZ, there are several factors that are contributing to the hefty price Mariah Carey is putting on their split. For starters, he had her move from New York to Los Angeles to be nearer to his children. He also made a bunch of financial promises to her, which he apparently hasn’t followed through on.
But the real kicker is that Packer reportedly did something so horrible to Mariah Carey’s assistant that she had to cancel the whole South American portion of her tour, which is resulting in huge financial losses. It’s not clear what he did to her assistant.
So why did the couple call off their engagement in the first place? US Weekly reported that it was a combination of her excessive spending and his bad temper. A source stated, “This was just a bad combination. In the beginning, he swept her off her feet and was a gentleman, but then as time went on, he revealed he had a temper and could get angry over the smallest things.”
