According to TMZ, the large monetary sum was tied to the former couple’s prenup had they married. Reportedly, Packer wanted to marry Carey on March 1, but his attorneys held up the wedding because the prenup  wasn’t solidified. Reportedly, Packer’s lawyers felt the prenup was complicated, sending Mariah’s team a 100 page document that outlined the specifics. One condition was if Packer gave Carey jewelry or anything else, she would have to return it unless he sent her a signed note saying it was a gift. Around the same time, Carey reportedly purchased a dress, ordered flowers and flights for guests had been secured. If the wedding had taken place, the two wouldn’t have been legally married because Mariah’s ex-husband, Nick Cannon,  hadn’t signed their divorce papers. In a nutshell, the prenup was never signed, but Carey still wants her check. She believes Packer’s people deliberately sabotaged their relationship. Joe fans, let’s toast to the crooner’s new album.
