Footage has emerged that would seem to put Mariah Carey in a compromising situation.

An eyebrow-raising video published by The Daily Mail shows the singer dirty dancing on her now-boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, with the publication suggesting it was filmed before she split from Aussie billionaire.

Mariah’s representatives however, have said, “We have not been privy to the content in question and cannot confirm from whence it came nor when, however as stated numerous times in the past, Mariah is not polyamorous”.

The video shows Mariah dressed in a sequinned mini dress with one high-heeled foot on his abdomen. As she dances, he reaches up and pulls at her tiny skirt, before they start grinding on each other.

A source told the Daily Mail, “They were clearly more than just friends even then. It was so flirtatious and there was so obviously something going on”.

James Packer popped the question to Mariah in January 2016, presenting her with a diamond ring reportedly worth more than $10 million.

Sadly however, the pair only made it to October of the same year before calling it quits.

Star-crossed lovers

The relationship between the star and the casino mogul was described by James in his biography as a ‘toxic’ one, and he even forked out a $50 million ‘inconvenience’ fee upon the relationship’s termination.

Shortly after James and Mariah high-profile breakup, dancer Bryan Tanaka was on the scene.

The couple have since been happy to flaunt their relationship bliss, putting on loved-up displays at events and on social media.
