Tacky, tacky, tacky!
Mariah Carey reportedly up and sold the 35-carat diamond engagement ring that was given to her two years ago by one-time fiancé James Packer.
This is coming out new today in media reports that allege the singer had one of her business managers “quietly” sell the ring to a Los Angeles jeweler.
One source said of the alleged transaction (below):
“A confidentiality agreement was signed, but the jeweler is currently selling it, and there’s only one such ring. Mariah Carey’s public relations people are desperately trying to keep the story from the press, and have threatened the jeweler with litigation if he discloses her name.”
Insiders in Carey’s camp are allegedly SUPER PISSED that this story was leaked, but it’s a big deal that someone reportedly with so many assets would even want to sell the ring… which, FYI, is worth a reported $ 2.1 million.
Carey’s publicist told Page Six (below):
“Mariah has been very vocal recently about her choice to move forward in her life surrounded by positivity. That requires leaving emotional and material baggage behind, including an old engagement ring from an ex-boyfriend.”
Ah, yes. The ‘good vibes only’ lifestyle change. Pretty easy to get good vibes when you bank another $ 2.1 million on a failed engagement, no?!
What do y’all think, Perezcious readers?! Is it cool to sell your engagement ring, or is it tacky???
