Mariah Carey’s relationship to James Packer has gone up in flames, with her US$250K would-be wedding gown reportedly following soon after.
In the official video clip for her new break-up single, ‘I Don’t’ featuring YG, the ex bride-to-be symbolically torches the crap out of a white frock, and according to gossip-mongers TMZ, the incinerated rag in question is noneother than the custom Valentino that the pop diva had planned to wear down the aisle during her nuptials with the Aussie wingnut business tycoon.
“Ever since the tour wrapped I took some time just to process my feelings and I started writing a song to express what I’ve been going through,” Carey said of the cathartic tune at its time of release. “And if you’re not getting the love that you need from someone that you’re supposed to be in a real relationship with, then why remain in that situation?”
ICYMI: Carey got engaged to #CasinoMike’s m8 Packer back in January 2016 after a whirlwind romance, but they split in September following a fight while on holiday in Greece and the singer called off their planned wedding in Bora Bora.
And now, she’s taken fiery vengeance on her ex, by apparently hurling the dress — which TMZ reckons costs roughly AUD$326K so, ya know, the casual price of a small house — into a fire pit at the former couple’s mansion in the upmarket Californian suburb of Calabasas.
That said, there’s some serious editing going on in the clip when Carey chucks the alleged garment into the pit, so we’re taking the word of “inside sources” that it’s the OG here, people.
Judge for yourself in the clip below.
