Mariah Carey is not being ordered by her billionaire boyfriend James Packer to stop fighting with Nick Cannon as a condition for them getting married, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story. We’re told it’s all “not true.”

According to the National Enquirer, Packer won’t marry Carey until she and Cannon stop feuding over money. A so-called insider tells the tabloid the singer has been“playing hardball over money and custody issues,” but Packer is “fed up with the endless bickering between Mariah and Nick.” The magazine’s alleged source claims he warned Carey that her and Cannon’s twins Moroccan and Monroe will “wind up the victims if Mariah and Nick drag out the haggling.”

The tabloid’s questionable source also supposedly says Packer secretly proposed last Christmas, and Carey “immediately said yes,” but the alleged engagement was “James’ way of putting a fire under Mariah’s butt to finalize things with Nick.” The same alleged insider notes Packer dangling a marriage carrot in front of Carey helped change her attitude because she “adores James and won’t do anything to jeopardize this relationship.”

Not surprisingly, the entire National Enquirer story is false. Not only are Packer and Carey not even engaged at this point, despite the tabloid’s made-up claim, but she and Cannon have been cordial and cooperative ever since they announced they were divorcing. A source close to Carey exclusively assures Gossip Cop that “Mariah and Nick are totally cool,” and calls the report about Packer allegedly proposing and ordering her to stop feuding with Cannon completely “not true.”
