Pop singer Mariah Carey has has sold the 35-carat diamond engagement ring worth $13.2m that her ex-fiance James Packer gave her two years ago.
According to Page Six, Mariah’s business manager “quietly” sold the ring to Los Angeles jewelers for $2.1 million. The ring is part of her financial settlement with Packer after her spin-off in 2017.
Her public relations staff told the news media: “Maria has been very happy with her choice recently. Her choice is to move forward with enthusiasm.” “It needs emotional and material baggage, including an ex-boyfriend engagement ring.”
An insider added that ‘a confidentiality agreement was signed’, meaning that full details of the engagement ring’s sale may never be confirmed.
‘Mariah Carey’s public relations people are desperately trying to keep the story from the press, and have threatened the jeweller with litigation if he discloses her name,’ they said.
The couple was engaged after a whirlwind romance for the first time in January 2016 but separated in October of the same year.
