There are no rumors surrounding Carey and Tanaka, no innuendo of any kind. They are simply together, mere weeks after Carey split from Packer. Late last month, witnesses confirmed that Carey and Tanaka were all over each other in Hawaii. There was kissing. There were public displays of affection across the board.

“They swam in the ocean and he picked her up to kiss her,” an onlooker added in detail: “They had a lot of fun together, and were very playful.”

And the dancer wasn’t exactly shy when it came to his feelings for Mariah. “I’ve always had a thing for Mariah. I love her so much,” Tanaka said at the New York City-based party. A cynical person might say this relationship is simply contrived for the sake of ratings and storylines. But Tanaka swears that it’s real and special.

“Something connected with us back in the day and there was just a mutual admiration,” Tanaka says. “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.”
