This Is What Happens When You Ask Mariah About Her Ex

Mimi don't play.

Published June 28, 2017

Mariah Carey has been known to keep it straight up if you’re trying to pull out some BS.

That’s what happened recently when the singer was interviewed by Israel's Channel 2 News station in Tel Aviv. She was there to promote her partnership with the skincare line Premier Dead Sea Cosmetics, but then things went left when the reporter asked her about her ex-fiancé, James Packer, and his relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"I was eating the food," Carey responded when asked about Packer's discussions with Netanyahu at a dinner the former couple attended. "They had some food there that was pretty good. I don't know. I was just there because I was invited to a dinner."

Apparently, Packer’s been wanted for questioning by Israeli police over an ongoing investigation into corruption and illegal gift giving. When they asked Mariah about his whereabouts, she plead the fifth in her own special way.

"I don't know where the motherrf**ker is!" she said. "How am I supposed to know?" She added, "I have no idea. I really have no idea about the political stuff. I don't pay attention to it."

Carey and Packer called off their engagement in October 2016. Check out the full interview segment below.
