Settlement Talks Between Mariah Carey and James Packer are Dead 

MARIAH CAREY is going to have to fight a little harder for that $50 million she wants from her ex-fiancé James Packer. 

TMZ says Packer walked away from the negotiating table, telling Mariah they were never married and he owes her nothing.  Mariah claims she deserves the money because she uprooted her life to be with him, and the distress over being dumped caused her to cancel the South American leg of her tour.

She also claims Packer dragged her to business meetings with important people, thinking her presence would help him seal the deal.  And she thinks she deserves a piece of that what he made from that set-up.

Justin wasn't there, but he did show up via satellite from a show in Zurich, Switzerland.  (Here's the video. If you wanna "Let Me Love You", The Bieb style,)


Marc Anthony & His Wife are Splitting. Did His Kiss with J-Lo Have Something to Do With It? 

MARC ANTHONY and his wife Shannon De Lima are separating after just two years of marriage.

And the timing is interesting, because the announcement came right around the time Marc performed at the "Latin Grammys" with his previous ex-wife, JENNIFER LOPEZ.  They even kissed after J-Lo presented him with an award.

But it was just a playful kiss, and sources say they're NOT back together.  Marc even had some fun on Instagram proving that he'll basically kiss ANYTHING.
