‘The split has been devastating for Mariah. She loved James and was planning to marry him.
‘She made life changes for this man to prepare for their future as husband and wife, even relocating to Los Angeles, at James’ request, so he could be closer to his children.
‘Everything she has done over the past year is to prove how fully committed she is to their life together. She really wanted this to work. And then, completely out of the blue, it imploded.’
However, a source close to the couple recently said:
‘Of course Mariah wants money, but she’s not getting $50 million. There’s no negotiations about money because they haven’t spoken since the split.
‘He let her keep the engagement ring, and she isn’t getting a cent more.’
