Mariah Carey … well, the poor woman has had a hell of a time lately.

She broke up with her fiance, James Packer, in October, and the split reportedly "traumatized" her.

We’ve never really gotten a clear reason for the breakup, but some sources claim that a source of tension between the two was Mariah’s relationship with James’ family.

Or, to be more accurate, the lack of a relationship.

The "final straw" for James was allegedly when Mariah refused to come to his sister’s birthday party, but "his mom hates to even hear her name mentioned, and James’ tight circle of friends never really thought they would marry."

But another report states that "something really bad" happened with Mariah’s assistant when they were all vacationing on a yacht in Greece, so who knows what happened?

Whatever it was, it’s undeniable that Mariah has been pretty closely linked with her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka, in the days and weeks following the breakup.

Like, so closely linked that there are already pregnancy rumors.

So did Mariah cheat on James with Bryan, is that why they broke up? Or has Mariah found comfort in the dancer after all that heartbreak?
