Mariah Carey has finally confirmed that she’s dating her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka. “I’m just going to be like ‘I really don’t talk about my personal life.’ Because that’s what I used to do and it really worked for a minute, back, a while ago,” she said. “I just don’t feel comfortable talking about my personal life. … Me and my boyfriend don’t want to do that.” Carey split from billionaire-fiance, James Packer back in October with one of the issues behind the breakup allegedly being the relationship Carey had with Tanaka.
PS- Happy Oscar’s Week!!
