Mariah Carey has ended things with beau Bryan Tanaka, despite recent claims of being head-over-heels with him.
Reports show that Carey's 33-year-old boyfriend was a very jealous person, and expected his "expensive tastes" to be met. According to sources, Tanaka couldn't handle the fact that Carey was in a cordial relationship with her ex, Nick Cannon, and also expected Carey to pick up the bill wherever they went.
Carey and Cannon pride themselves on being able to successfully raise their two kids, Monroe and Moroccan, together. Tanaka, however, wasn't so excited about their parenting skills. It reportedly "drove him crazy" that the two would go on vacation together, so much so that he'd try to get back at Carey by flirting with other women in front of her. Specifically, Tanaka felt "disrespected" by Carey's red carpet appearance with her whole family at the Kid's Choice Awards.
Cannon himself likely won't be too shocked at his ex's split, considering he spoke out about not "buying" their relationship. Regardless, the former couple has in fact found a way to see past their hardships, for the sake of their little ones. Most recently, Cannon welcomed a baby boy with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell, and the 5-year-old twins didn't wait long before having an adorable meet-up with their new half brother.
Just a few weeks ago, however, the couple was jetting off to Cabo to celebrate the singer's 47th birthday. Oh, how times have changed...
