Mariah Carey Speaks for First Time After James Packer Split: It's 'Difficult To Talk About'

Rumors that Mariah Carey and billionaire fiance James Packer broke off their engagement started swirling at the end of October. And while we don't know exactly what happened (some people speculate that the businessman didn't want to appear on her upcoming E! docu-series Mariah's World), MC spoke very briefly about her situation on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday.

"I think I'm doing well," Carey said. "Everything happens for a reason. Things are the way they are."

DeGeneres, who later gifted the Christmas-loving diva with an elf suit for prime festiveness, prodded her about the Mariah's World rumors, since Packer appears in the show, which premieres on Dec. 4.

"It's kind of difficult to talk about at this moment," Carey said. "So I'm just going to compliment you on these decorations once again, 'cause they are fabulous."

Classic coy Carey evasion.
