The five-time Grammy Award winner appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday. For the first time, Carey addressed her split with Australian business mogul James Packer.
Noting that Carey was in a “highly publicized relationship” with Packer, Ellen DeGeneres said, “You were engaged and you were trying on wedding dresses in the docu-series. We see the behind the scenes of that, which is pretty personal. And now, you’re not together anymore.”
“Now it’s a whole friggin’ thing,” Carey said.
“I think I’m doing well,” Carey replied. “How are you?”
“I’m great,” DeGeneres said. “I’m great.”
“No, I’m actually…Everything happens for a reason,” Carey said. “Things are the way they are.”
