In a recent interview, the singer gave a harshly honest reason for why the Australian billionaire wasn’t discussed in “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”
Packer, 53, proposed to Carey, 50, in January 2016 after six months of dating. The couple reportedly split in October that same year.
“If it was a relationship that mattered, it’s in the book. If not, it didn’t occur,” the Grammy winner told The Guardian.

Carey added, “We didn’t have a physical relationship, to be honest with you” and declined to comment more about Packer.
The “We Belong Together” singer spoke about her first husband, Tommy Mottola, and her relationship with Derek Jeter in the book. She also discusses her relationship with her ex-husband Nick Cannon — with whom she shares 9-year-old twins, Monroe and Morrocan.
