Mariah Carey and James Packer may have split years ago, but their relationship is still producing life-giving drama. This week, there are reports that the Aussie billionaire flipped out over her rumoured romance with Bryan Tanaka, and tried to have him barred from Caesars Palace as a result.

Tanaka works as a dancer and choreographer for Mariah Carey, and he featured heavily in her reality show Mariah’s World. A video recently emerged from a 2016 South African show, in which she gives him a lap dance. She was still engaged to packer at the time.

Things reportedly came to a head in July of that year, when Tanaka turned up to one of Mariah’s shows in Las Vegas, despite the fact that he would not be dancing that night due to an injury. TMZ claim that Packer became suspicious and “pulled Bryan into a room” for a chat.

Bystanders say that they heard “a ton of yelling” from the resulting confrontation. TMZ also alleges that Packer used his casino industry ties to try and get Tanaka banned from Caesars Palace, where Mariah was performing. Allegedly, he circulated a photo of the dancer to staff.

Mariah Carey split from Packer in October of 2016, and she began dating Tanaka soon after. Her rep has released a statement vehemently denying reports of an affair while she was engaged to Packer. Per Entertainment Tonight:

“We have not been privy to the content in question and cannot confirm from whence it came nor when. However, as stated numerous times in the past, Mariah is not polyamorous.”

Mariah’s most recent album Caution came out last year and is very, very good.
