Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka Announce Amicable Separation After Seven Years

Pop sensation Mariah Carey and background dancer Bryan Tanaka have officially ended their seven-year relationship. Tanaka confirmed the news through a post on his personal Instagram page, expressing mixed emotions and emphasizing the mutual decision to embark on separate journeys.

In his statement, Tanaka shared, “Dear friends and fans, with mixed emotions, I share this personal update regarding my amicable separation from Mariah Carey after seven extraordinary years together. Our decision to embark on different paths is mutual, and as we navigate these separate journeys, we do so with profound respect and an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the invaluable time we’ve shared. The memories we’ve created and the artistic collaborations are etched in my heart forever.”

Carey had first confirmed her relationship with Tanaka in 2017, following her split from ex-fiancé James Packer. However, reports indicate that they had been working together since 2006 when Tanaka joined Carey on her Adventures Of Mimi Tour.

Despite the separation, it seems the two remain on good terms. Tanaka continued in his statement, expressing appreciation for Carey and her children: “Mariah’s dedication to her family and her commitment to her craft have inspired us during our journey. I want to express my love and appreciation for Mariah and her incredible children, whose warmth and kindness have enriched my life in ways words cannot capture.”

Fans and well-wishers flooded social media with messages of support for both Carey and Tanaka as they navigate this new chapter in their lives.
