Mariah Carey spoke with Cosmopolitan and revealed to the world a lot about her sexuality. This is shocking because of how quiet she is when it comes to her relationships.
The singer opened up about her personal life and said that faith had a lot to do with her “being kind of a prude” and only having 5 lovers.
“I haven’t had that many, but there has been a variety pack.”
Despite the fact that the pop star has been in quite a few notable relationships, she apparently doesn’t play the field.
Some of her most noteworthy relationships have been with Tommy Mottola, who she first married in 1993 and divorced in 1998. The “With you” singer described that relationship as a prison sentence.
“You might want to picture a child bride…There was a conscious effort to keep me as this all-American, whatever that means, girl. It was very controlled. There was no freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner.”
The 5 time Grammy winner then married comedian and actor Nick Cannon. The pair was together from 2008 to 2016 and have two children together Moroccan and Monroe.
After the divorce, the 49-year-old got engaged to billionaire James Packer but that relationship was short lived.
The nominated Songwriter’s Hall of Famer is currently dating her background dancer, Bryan Tanaka and the two have been together shortly after her broken engagement.
Aside from giving us the scoop on her love life, the mother of twins also gave us tips on how to take great photos, why she doesn’t celebrate birthdays and many more gems.
The August issue of Cosmopolitan hits stands on July 16th.
