Mariah Carey’s Engagement Is On The Rocks & This Can’t Possibly Be A Ratings Ploy

Mariah Carey has been filming her E! “docuseries” Mariah’s World for the past couple months, and the cameras followed her on the Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour, but one of the biggest selling points was that the show would give fans a look at all her wedding planning and possibly even the ceremony. Now, with the show’s premiere nearly a month away, there are rumors that she and fiancé James Packer called off the engagement.

TMZ reports “sources connected with” the reality show say the relationship has been bumpy and apparently hit a turning point when Mariah “had some sort of rendezvous with one of the dancers in her Vegas show … something that is on video for the reality show.”

Maybe I’m a heartless cynic but this seems like a stunt to entice people to watch the drama unfold on the show. I mean, the source came from inside the house and they conveniently have footage of the supposed dramatic moment when it all collapsed. Note also that this is reportedly just a pause, not a permanent split.

Guess we’ll start getting all the answers on December 4.
