Mariah Carey Finally Confirms Bryan Tanaka Is Her Boyfriend


They belong together.

Mariah Carey is officially dating her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka — and the confirmation came straight from the pop diva herself!

Though coy about naming the dancer as her hot new BF, the "Vision of Love" singer pretty much confirmed she was off the market.

"I'm just going to be like, 'I really don't talk about my personal life' because that's what I used to do and it really worked for a minute, back a while ago," Mariah told the Associated Press, laughing.

She continued, "I just don't feel comfortable talking about my personal life. Can we just keep that private between us? Me and my boyfriend don't want to do that."

The confirmation came shortly after the lovebirds posted matching Valentine's Day Instagram posts of the couple lounging in a hot tub, sipping champagne. Naturally.

Happy Valentine's Day!! #happyvalentinesday #happy #moments #bubbles

The pair's romance began last year after Mariah called it quits with ex-fiancé James Packer. The new relationship was teased on Mariah's E! series Mariah's World where the cameras showed Mariah and Bryan making out shortly after she dumped the billionaire.

While Bryan and Mariah seem to be getting cozy, the pop star's ex-husband Nick Cannon is skeptical of the match. In a recent interview, the comedian expressed his skepticism of Mariah's World and his former flame's new relationship.

"First of all, I think the whole reality show is fake," Nick said on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show on February 8.

The America's Got Talent host, who shares 5-year-old twins Monroe and Morrocan with the singer, went on to speculate that the relationship was all for show.

"I'm a producer, so I know how [it works]. ... I don't buy none of that s--t. ... It feels like they wrote the story. That s--t is like a soap opera," he continued.
