Mariah Carey Allegedly Paying Boyfriend 12k Per Week
According to reports, since parting ways with controversial manager Stella Bulochnikov, Mariah Carey’s career is being managed by her 34-year-old back-up dancer boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka.
Last week, we reported that Mariah and Stella had parted ways, with neither addressing what caused the split.
Sources allege that Bryan was ultimately responsible for orchestrating Stella’s departure. [FYI: Stella is said to have been responsible for Mariah’s E! reality show and her recent Las Vegas residency].
A source says that since Stella left,
The boyfriend backup dancer definitely isn’t the right person to run her career.
Another source adds,
This is a full-on Britney-and-Kevin Federline situation. Brian is a backup dancer, and knows nothing about managing an iconic artist.
It is rumored that Mariah pays Bryan around $12,000 a week for running her life. No word on what tha alleged figure entails. The source says,
He has totally manipulated the situation to take over her life and push out everyone else, and Mariah just can’t see it.
Mariah, who reportedly received weight loss surgery last month, has yet to comment as to whom is currently managing her.
