Mariah Carey covered some special Christmas issue of People Magazine, and I believe that’s how People Mag got the “tip” that Mariah and Bryan Tanaka had split. From the sound of it, they broke up months ago and the whole thing was barely a story because… honestly, people forgot they were together. They’ve been together since 2016 (they got together quickly in the wake of her split from James Packer) but they’ve never been joined at the hip, and it seemed more like a relationship of convenience and stable PR more than anything else. My point is that no one really gave a sh-t about Bryan apart from Mariah, but now we’re getting “his side” of the breakup. Apparently, he wants children.
Mariah Carey and her longtime boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka, have called it quits because he wanted kids, a source tells Page Six exclusively. We are told that the age gap of 14 years played a role with Tanaka, 40, wanting different things than Carey, 54.
“He wants to have a family. That’s not where she is at,” says the source.
Carey shares 12-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her ex-husband Nick Cannon. Tanaka, on the other hand, does not have children of his own.
The “Fantasy” singer and backup dancer were together for seven years.
Eyebrows were raised this week when the Queen of Christmas went on her annual trip to Aspen, Colo., solo. Tanaka was also missing from her “Merry Christmas One and All!” tour that started in November at the Yaamava Resort & Casino in Highland, Calif.
“He wants to start having his own life,” another source told us of the split.

This is something of a trend this year too – men initiating a split or divorce because they suddenly realize that they want to be a father. It was the same with Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara. Like… did Bryan just realize that after seven years with Mariah? I don’t know – it is what it is, if he wants something different or he just realized that he wants to be a father, so be it. Y’all know that Mariah wants no part in having another round of Dem Babies. You know what? I kind of hope Bryan got a nice check to go away quietly and not make too much noise. I wonder.
