Mariah Carey is definitely going strong with billionaire boyfriend James Packer, but that doesn’t mean she’s pregnant with Packer’s baby.
According to the Daily Mail tabloid, the singer is expecting her third child, and first with Packer, but according to E! that story is false. Carey’s rep spoke to E! and denied the report that the singer is expecting a child.
A report from publication New Idea said, “Mariah found out the baby news recently and they’re overjoyed at the prospect of being parents.”
When the tabloid news hit, fans on social media were skeptical about another pregnancy for Mariah.
Every time I read “Mariah Carey is pregnant with James Packer’s child” I just laugh, roll my eyes & scroll on…..#NaughtyGossip

That said, it looks like Mariah is very happy with James Packer. According to TMZ, Mariah and James are looking to take the next step together. While there’s no babies on board just yet, the two may be planning on a wedding.
A source told TMZ back in June, “He’s already told her he wants to marry her, sooner rather than later.” Since then fans still haven’t seen Carey wearing any kind of engagement ring, so it is reasonable to think the pair are holding off on wedding bells as of right now.
As it is, Carey has a lot on her plate. She’s working on new music and she has a divorce that’s still pending. Carey and America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon decided to split in 2014 after six years of marriage. According to TMZ, Nick Cannon is “dragging his feet” about the divorce.
According to a source, Carey met up with divorce lawyers for dinner, to see what kind of pressure she could put on Cannon to “seal the deal on the divorce.” Carey and co think that Cannon, for some reason, is simply dragging his feet on the divorce proceedings.
It’s said that Carey wants this to happen fast because it’s become an issue in her relationship with her billionaire boyfriend.
We’re not sure why Nick Cannon would drag his feet about the divorce from Carey. As The Inquisitr reported, Cannon was the first to move on after his split from Mariah. He’s been dating girlfriend and model Jessica White for months now.
Once Nick and Mariah are officially divorced, it will be interesting to see what happens in their respective relationships.
