“[Packer] is causing Mariah severe emotional distress especially at such an important time of her life,” the source tells Entertainment Tonight. “He knows she is the queen of the holiday season and she knows he’s trying to ruin it for her.”
They’re apparently stalled with their financial negotiations. Sources say they’re still trying to figure out who gets to keep Mariah’s $10 million engagement ring, as well as what happens to the Los Angeles mansion they leased together. Mariah also reportedly wants a $50 million “inconvenience fee” which she believes was discussed as part of the couple’s prenuptial agreement.
“They’re not close to reaching a settlement,” the source says. “Mariah has not spoken to James.”
Still, Mariah is keeping busy with her holiday commitments. She’ll sing her classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration airing Thanksgiving Day on ABC. She’ll also kick off her All I Want for Christmas Is You residency in New York City on December 5.
