Is Mariah Carey’s wedding on hold? That’s a rumor heating up over the last week. But Gossip Cop can pour cold water all over the claim.

“Change Of Heart: Mariah Carey’s STALLS Wedding To James Packer,” blares a headline from RadarOnline. The site writes in its accompanying story, “Mariah Carey‘s fairytale romance with billionaire James Packer may not have a happy ending after all! Amid growing tensions, has exclusively learned that the 46-year-old superstar singer has put the wedding on hold — FOR NOW.”

A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Mariah and James have not solidified anything yet because they have just been so busy. Although Mariah still wants to have an end of summer wedding in the Mediterranean, nothing has been booked solid.” The supposed snitch goes on, “Mariah has just not been super focused on the wedding to James like she was before, which makes her friends worry that something is up.”

So, RadarOnline claims Carey “put the wedding on hold,” but then doesn’t actually provide any evidence that that’s the case. Rather, the webloid merely says the plans aren’t “solidified,” and quotes a “source” who speculates that “something is up.” Suspicious, no?

Gossip Cop thought so, just as we did last week when Life & Style similarly claimed the wedding was being called off, a report her rep exclusively told us was “not true.” Carey can’t wed until her divorce is finalized, and it’s certainly possible her romance with Packer won’t work out for any number of reasons. But right now, the allegation that she’s put the nuptials “on hold” is untrue.

In fact, just last week, the singer said she and Packer were “getting it together.” And there’s further evidence RadarOnline is off base. While its “source” says Carey “has not really even picked out a dress for sure yet,” the superstar actually point-blank stated in her recent interview, “I have the dress.” There you go.
