It seems to be a season of celebrity breakups. A few days after Janet Jackson separated from her Qatari billionaire husband, another legendary singer has broken up with her boyfriend. According to a source close to the couple, problems in their relationship started on St. Patricks day when during dinner Brian overheard Mariah Carey telling one of her friends that she was still very close with her ex-husband Nick Cannon. This is reported to have angered Tanaka who apparently turned down the table causing drama at the Los Angeles hot spot catch. The source goes further to add that Tanaka later stormed out of the room and came back with a waitress with whom he was flirting with getting Mariah infuriated. Despite Nick being one of the reasons Mariah has split from Tanaka , he has distanced himself from the allegations claiming that he had too many issues in his relationship with girlfriend Britanny Bell with whom he is expecting a second son.
