Mariah Carey’s split from James Packer may now be “destroying” her upcoming reality show, a source close to the former couple tells ET.
The Australian billionaire allegedly wants all footage of himself edited out of Carey’s new E! reality show, Mariah’s World. However, a source close to Packer says these claims are “totally false.”
“He is demanding that E! and Carey remove him from all footage of Mariah’s World,” the source adds, explaining that Packer is featured prominently in the show’s first episode, set to debut on Dec. 4. “He wants E! to reopen all the footage they got of him and edit him out of the show.”
According to the source, Packer’s “bullying tactics” may put the future of Mariah’s World in jeopardy, as the “the bulk of the show is them planning a wedding.”
However, a source close to Packer disputes these claims. "The show hasn't even finished shooting," the source said. "He has not asked to be taken out. It is totally false."
Still, Carey feels abandoned by her former fiancé.
“He is reneging on every promise he has made her, including being on the show and getting her a beautiful house in Beverly Hills,” the source explains, adding that Packer is allegedly in seclusion in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “All emails are now bouncing back and the numbers are disconnected... He left her with a pile of expenses.”
For her part, Carey is staying focused on her reality series as well as her children, her 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, with ex-husband Nick Cannon.
“Nick is being incredibly supportive and is spending much more time with Mariah and the kids,” the source adds.
ET reached out to E!, who had no comment on the reality series.
