Remember that backup dancer Mariah Carey told her ex-fiance not to worry about? Well, it appears he had every reason to be worried.
According to Us Weekly, Mariah was recently spotted kissing her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka in Maui. Tanaka is also the same backup dancer that Mariah’s fiance, James Packer, did “something bad” to in Greece. Rumor has it Packer also used his casino ties to get Tanaka banned from Caesar’s Palace, where Mariah has a residency.
Mariah has been extra cozy and flirtatious with Tanaka so it was only a matter of time before things graduated to the next level.
According to Us Weekly, Mariah and the choreographer/dancer spent a few days at Maui’s Grand Wailea Resort following Mariah’s three shows in Honolulu.
“They were all over each other, making out and not wanting to be more than a few feet apart,” says an eyewitness. “They swam in the ocean and he picked her up to kiss her. She was jumping into his arms, and he bent her back over his knee like they were dancing. Then they walked on the beach holding hands, and he gave her a piggyback ride. They had a lot of fun together, and were very playful. She was kicking up the water to splash him, and he was laughing.”
The eyewitness says Mariah seemed very happy and comfortable with her dancer.
Mariah Carey’s new reality show, Mariah’s World, premieres on Sunday and in the most recent trailer, Mariah’s crew discusses Tanaka’s crush on his boss. “Tanaka does have a crush on her,” a staff member says, while a second team member replies, “What are we going to do with him?”
We’re patiently waiting for Mariah to confirm whether she’s moved on with her backup dancer, in the meantime let’s check out a few pics of them together. I mean, it can’t be all bad. It worked for J. Lo.
