The couple, who found love amidst Careys crumbling engagement to billionaire James Packer, documented their relationship on the singers reality TV series Mariahs World this past year. The two reportedly havent seen or spoken to each other since their vacation to Cabo at the end of March.
Apparently, it was Careys ex-husband Nick Cannon, not Packer, who had a role to play in the couples demise. According to TMZ, Tanaka was jealous over the pairs more-than-cordial relationship, which made the dancer feel disrespected.
Things reportedly reached a boiling point when Carey showed up to the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards last month with Cannon and their children,5-year-old twins Morocco and Monroe.
In retaliation, Tanaka would reportedly lash back at the I Dont singer by flirting with other women in front of her.
The outlet also notes that finances put a strain on their relationship, as Tanaka reportedly developed expensive tastes during his time with Carey. She eventually put her foot down, however, after paying for his designer shoes, watches and chains.
His spending habits and mistrust of Cannon apparently confirmed Careys suspicions that Tanaka stuck around for the fame after her split with Packer.
