Mariah Carey was spotted spending time in LA with her new beau over the weekend sporting an impressive diamond on her engagement finger.
But the stunning ring wasn’t a gift from toy boy back up dancer, 33-year-old Bryan Tanaka. The pop icon has seemingly decided that the stunning 35-carat ring given to her from ex-fiance James Packer is just too fabulous to hide.
In January 2016, the Aussie billionaire presented the 46-year-old diva with the $9.5 million rock. But after calling off their engagement after a blow-up row in Europe last October, the singer opted to keep the ring.
“The law in California is that she doesn’t have to give the ring back because she didn’t call off the engagement,” a source close to Mariah revealed to US Weekly.
“She had every intention of marrying him – she had a dress, her daughter had a dress, they were excited, they were making wedding plans.”
“Then, on the last day [of their Greek vacation], he said, “I can’t do this anymore, this is just too much,” the source revealed.
