Mariah Carey 'wants $50m' from James Packer

MARIAH Carey "wants millions" from James Packer.

The 'Without You' hitmaker is reportedly asking for the Australian billionaire to pay out $50 million as a settlement as she believes she had to uproot her life and move to Los Angeles for him.

But a source close to the couple says the mother-of-two - who has five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her ex-husband Nick Cannon - won't be getting any money but he will let her keep her ring.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six column: "Of course Mariah wants money, but she's not getting $50 million. There's no negotiations about money because they haven't spoken since the split.

"He let her keep the ring, and she isn't getting a cent more. It is ridiculous to claim that James is the reason for the cancellation of her South America tour. A few days ago she blamed it on the promoters."

Meanwhile, Mariah and James are "trying" to work things out after having a fight in Greece.

Her representative said in a statement: "Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since. [The fight was not due to] any cheating allegations or excessive spending. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they're not sure if they will stay together. They are discussing it."

It has been claimed that the pair split because Mariah became so obsessed with her reality television show 'Mariah's World'.

A source said: "It's all over. James had huge reservations about Mariah's new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world ... James is very generous, but Mariah takes it to the next level."
