In a sad ending to their former romance, pop diva Mariah Carey has sold the engagement ring she received from troubled Aussie businessman James Packer.
It’s been revealed that Carey has sold the 35-carat diamond multimillion-dollar engagement ring from James Packer for amost three million dollars.
The giant sparkler, reported to be worth close to $10 million, was part of a financial settlement the singer made with Packer last year following their split.
Her publicist has told the Page Six.
“Mariah has been very vocal recently about her choice to move forward in her life surrounded by positivity”
“That requires leaving emotional and material baggage behind, including an old engagement ring from an ex-boyfriend.”
It’s believed she sold the ring to a Los Angeles jeweller for $2.7 million.
A source told the New York Post,
“A confidentiality agreement was signed, but the jeweller is currently selling it, and there’s only one such ring,”
“Mariah Carey’s public relations people are desperately trying to keep the story from the press, and have threatened the jeweller with litigation if he discloses her name.”
An person close to Carey rebuffed claims she sold the ring as she may be short on funds.
“She owns multiple homes, her entire catalogue of music, and she’s had numerous successful tours and residencies.”
