American singer Mariah Carey, 45, is the cover star for Complex magazine’s recent issue.
Mariah in a tell it all interview opened up about her divorce from Nick Cannon and her engagement to James Packer in the issue.
Mariah who shares 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Nick Cannon told Complex, “I never thought I would have babies with someone and then get divorced. Like, ‘Oh, great job. Repeat your past,” she said, adding, “But life happens. And it was supposed to happen. It’s fine. For them, I wish it hadn’t happened that way. For me, it was. … [singing Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams’ ‘Too Much, Too Little, Too Late’] Guess it’s over. Call it a day.”
Carey who got married to Cannon back in 2008 remains amicable with the father of her kids. The duo who got divorced in December 2014 are often seen at family outings together and constantly share photos of their family on social media.
Carey however found love again with billionaire business man, James Packer.
She told Complex her song ‘Hero’ is his current favorite and his interest in her career has never been a turnoff.
“I don’t expect him to be at every little thing that I do, and vice versa. He’s got a lot of stuff on his plate and so do I. Actually, I think if he didn’t like my music, then how would I be able to handle him being around when all I’m doing is creating new stuff, doing whatever? It’s cool.”
Australian billionaire, James Parker proposed to Carey with a 35-karat diamond ring earlier this year less than a year after the couple met at a movie premiere in Aspen.
