Mariah Carey has blessed fans with the memoir of their dreams thanks to the release of The Meaning of Mariah Carey.
And while the page-turning read features everything from her tough childhood, painful divorce and industry sabotage attempts, the singer chose to leave out details about her failed engagement to Australian mogul James Packer.
When asked about her ex-fiancé’s absence from the book, Mariah said: ‘If it was a relationship that mattered, it’s in the book. If not, it didn’t occur.’
She then added a surprising detail about their lack of intimacy as she continued: ‘We didn’t have a physical relationship, to be honest with you.’

Mariah and James began dating in 2015 and were together for nine months before the businessman proposed.
However, they never made it down the aisle and called off the romance in 2016.
Later in the interview, the Heartbreaker singer also addressed talk of her being a ‘diva’ and ‘high maintaenance’.
The 50-year-old replied: ‘You know what? I don’t give a s**t. I f***ing am high maintenance because I deserve to be at this point.
‘That may sound arrogant, but I hope you frame it within the context of coming from nothing.’
She continued: ‘If I can’t be high maintenance after working my ass off my entire life, oh, I’m sorry – I didn’t realize we all had to be low maintenance.’
