Rumors are swirling that the singer developed a close relationship with one of her dancers amidst her issues with her former fiancé. 

"James was not in the right mind for months. Mariah was in essence an abandoned woman," a source told E! News. "While in Vegas, she turned to and developed a close relationship with Brian Tanaka."

News broke on October 27 that Packer had ended things with Carey but now it seems that it was his behavior that pushed her to leave him. 

"James is not in a mentally healthy place right now and he has not been present for her," a source said. "Unfortunately, his absence and behavior was not a good situation for her, so she had to leave him."

A representative for Packer has come out and said, "This is simply untrue." A representative for Carey has come out and said, "Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since. The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they're not sure if they will stay together."

Packer and Carey first met in 2014 and in January 2016 he proposed to her with a 35-carat diamond ring. After getting engaged, the 46-year-old said that the two would be getting married right away but her tune definitely changed earlier this year. 

"I can't really answer them because we're trying to talk it through," she said. "It's like some things are a surprise, some things are like, 'How do we fit them into the schedule?' So, everybody just has to wait and see, including me. We're figuring it out."
