Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka have ended their relationship after seven years together.
Tanaka, 40, confirmed his split from Carey, 54, in a statement on social media: “With mixed emotions, I share this personal update regarding my amicable separation from Mariah Carey after seven extraordinary years together. Our decision to embark on different paths is mutual, and as we navigate these separate journeys, we do so with profound respect and an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the invaluable time we’ve shared. The memories we’ve created and the artistic collaborations are etched in my heart forever. Mariah’s dedication to her family and her commitment to her craft have inspired us during our shared journey. I want to express my love and appreciation for Mariah and her incredible children, whose warmth and kindness have enriched my life in ways words cannot express. I eagerly anticipate continuing my journey, knowing my passion for inspiration, dance, and the creative arts will resonate in the unfolding chapters.” Carey shares twins Monroe and Moroccan, 12, with ex-husband Nick Cannon.
Carey and Tanaka were first linked in 2016; rumors they had split began this month after Tanaka did not join Carey on her Merry Christmas One and All! tour, as he had done in the past.
