Mariah Carey is not known for mincing words and she proved it again during an interview with an Israeli reporter. The singing diva frowned after the reporter repeatedly asked her about her former billionaire fiancé James Packer's whereabouts and called Packer a "motherf****r"
"I don't know where the motherf****r is," she told the reporter from Israel's Channel 2 News. The Australian billionaire is allegedly involved in a corruption case and is being investigated for gifting luxury vacations to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. As the businessman has become a hot topic in the country, Carey was unpleasantly bombarded with questions about him.
"How am I supposed to know? I don't know, for real. I really have no idea about the political stuff that goes on, I don't pay attention to it," the 47-year-old American singer, who clearly looked unhappy, replied.
The Touch My Body singer was in the Middle Eastern country to promote local skin care line - Premier Dead Sea Cosmetics but instead of questioning her about the new partnership, she was asked about the dinner she had with the Israeli PM and her then fiancé Packer. "I was eating the food. I was just there because I was invited to dinner."
The mother of two had previously expressed her discomfort in talking about her relationship with the billionaire. "It's kind of difficult to talk about it at the moment," and "Everything happens for a reason," she said back in November.
The billionaire businessman reportedly also gifted Mariah's concert tickets to Netanyahu. "Now they want to blame me? Someone wants to blame me for something now? What did I do? I didn't do anything. I'm just trying to be, um, trying to do me," an irritated Mariah replied.
