Mariah Carey Gets the Dirty Dancing Treatment From Her New Beau on the Beach
Mariah Carey is moving on! Two months after splitting from her billionaire fiancé, James Packer, the singer was spotted getting hot and heavy on the beach with one of her backup dancers, Bryan Tanaka, in Hawaii. After celebrating Thanksgiving with her ex-husband Nick Cannon and their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, Mariah kicked back and played in the ocean with the 33-year-old; they packed on the PDA, holding hands and sharing a kiss, and at one point, Bryan dipped Mariah and lifted her out of the water. Mariah was also seen lounging on a rock in her cutout bikini (and a healthy dose of diamonds). Shortly after the photos made headlines, Nick posted a slightly petty Instagram photo of him carrying Mariah on the beach that he captioned, "#TBT This is how you do it! LOL."
While Bryan was technically in Hawaii for work — Mariah performed three sold-out shows during her stay — their playful day on the beach pretty much confirmed those lingering romance rumors. After ending her engagement, Mariah was frequently seen out and about with Bryan, and recent promos for her upcoming reality show Mariah's World seem to allude to a larger role for the dancer.
