"The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they're not sure if they will stay together."
A source told ET at the time that Carey was "traumatized" by the split, but just weeks later, she stepped out with a new man: her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka.
In his interview on Friday, Packer reflected on his other relationships, revealing that while he and Carey didn't end on good terms, he and exes Jodhi Meares and Erica Packer couldn't be more friendly.
“I get on exceptionally well with my two ex-wives,” he said, adding that he still regrets losing the mother of his three children, Indigo, 9, Emmanuelle, 5, and Jackson, 7. “It is my biggest regret that I let my marriage to Erica fail. It is what it is, and she is doing an incredible job with the kids and we are in a great place.”
