After calling it quits with fiancé James Packer, Mariah Carey embarked on a new romantic journey with 33-year-old choreographer Bryan Tanaka, sparking a whirlwind romance that saw the pair tour, spend holidays together and travel the world.

Despite their evident chemistry — as documented on Mimi’s E! reality series Mariah’s World and Instagram — Carey and Tanaka split after five months of dating.
As die-hard shippers of the pair come to terms with the news, we’re taking a look back at the lovebirds’ most important moments together.Tanaka toured with Carey in 2006.
Tanaka and Carey have been linked professionally for a decade. Now the star’s creative director, Tanaka took the stage with Carey as a backup dancer on her 2006 Adventures of Mimi tour.“Something connected with us back in the day and there was just a mutual admiration,” Tanaka told E! News about his early work with Carey. “She saw something in me that I actually didn’t recognize at first, from that it was over. It was set in history that we were gonna be connected some way, some how.”
In 2014 Instagram post, Tanaka expressed his gratitude toward the singer, saying, “She has always supported me and been so kind.”
 Carey’s now-former fiancé was allegedly jealous of Tanaka.
It is believed that Packer was concerned about Carey’s closeness to Tanaka prior to the end of their engagement. According to reports, the Australian billionaire even confronted Tanaka after he showed up to Carey’s Las Vegas show despite not being able to perform due to an injury. Packer allegedly banned the dancer from the Caesars Palace show during the incident.
  There is speculation that some of Packer’s jealousy stemmed from an onstage lap dance Carey gave Tanaka in May to (jokingly) help his injured knee. “That moment when I got to go on stage for a second, it was a special moment in time for Mariah and myself. I felt like no one really understood what I was going through and just to get that little extra love from Mariah… I’m not gonna lie it made me feel a lot better,” Tanaka said of the dance on Mariah’s World.
