Music legend Mariah Carey was married twice, both times to industry colleagues, as is often the case with celebrities. She met her first husband, music executive Tommy Mottola, while working on her album Music Box. The two tied the knot in 1993, and for some time, it seemed as if Carey might have found the one. However, they broke up in 1998. A common struggle for A-listers is trying to juggle between their busy careers and personal lives and relationships, and things were no different for Mariah Carey, who at some point put her career ahead of her marriage.
Some would say that dating her executive producer was her first mistake, and they’re not necessarily wrong. Either way, it wasn’t long until Carey had started a new relationship, with singer Luis Miguel, but this romance didn’t last either. In 2008, the singer married comedian Nick Cannon, with whom she had two children – fraternal twins – in 2011. However, this relationship was also doomed, and the two separated in 2014. Carey started dating businessman James Packer in 2015 and the two got engaged (her massive engagement ring is a topic for a different article), but separated before tying the knot. It seems as if today, the only man in her life is her nine-year old son.
