The romance is reportedly over between Mariah Carey and James Packer. The Australian billionaire businessman and the award-winning songstress had gotten engaged this past January, but now buzz is building that they have called it quits. What's the scoop?

Sources say that Mariah's upcoming TV show generated friction

According to Women's Day, James Packer dumped Mariah Carey after fights over her new reality television show and her spending. He proposed to her with a $10 million 35-carat engagement ring last January, but he has now reportedly bailed on the relationship over her desire to showcase her life via a new television show.

Packer is said to be letting Carey keep the massive ring.

Supposed insiders say that those close to James have always been quite leery of the relationship, and it sounds as if Mariah never put in much effort to connect with his family. There have been rumors that Packer and Carey's relationship was in a bit of trouble, and they have been spending less and less time together in recent months from the sounds of things.

Confirmation of a split for Packer and Carey has not emerged yet

As Us Weekly notes, neither Packer or Carey have confirmed the reports of a breakup as of yet.

Mariah has just canceled shows she had slated in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile, citing promoter negligence, but her new show “Mariah's World” is slated to premiere on December 4 on the E! Network.

James and Mariah generated a lot of buzz as they first emerged as a couple in the early days of their relationship that began not long after her split from former husband Nick Cannon. Some might say that this duo seemed like a great match in many ways, as they certainly loved living a ritzy life on the go with one another.

Ultimately, however, it sounds as if they may not have had the same goals in terms of family and privacy.

Are James Packer and Mariah Carey split for good or could these two find a way to work through their reported differences? Fans will be curious to see whether confirmation from either star's camp emerges and will stay tuned to see what comes next.
