Mariah’s World has been spinning off into a whole new direction — and cameras are making sure viewers are completely up to date!
In the wake of her October split from billionaire fianc├â┬⌐e James Packer, Carey’s team had producers re-edit all eight episodes “so James is barely in it.” Ouch!
And because the Elusive Enchantress already has a new Dreamlover, scenes left on the cutting-room floor featuring the songstress flirting with Tanaka were put in instead!
Not only that, but fresh footage of the lovebirds was quickly shot on multiple romantic rendezvous — including a Thanksgiving beach romp in Hawaii — to really hammer in Mimi’s new romance.
The insider explained:
“They want the focus of the show to be Mariah finding love, not getting dumped.”
We’re not the least bit surprised Mariah would rather show off her new relationship than sulk over her old one — after all, this IS Mariah’s World and we’re all just living in it!
Viewers caught a glimpse of the romantic tension between the singer and her backup dancer in a recently aired episode, when Tanaka visited Mariah’s dressing room and she tried to get him drunk!
Now that the 33-year-old dancer will be getting more airtime, we have a feeling Mariah’s World is about to get a whole lot steamier.
Silver lining to the breakup? Mimi’s next single Edit You Out Of My Life is going to be such a banger!
