In case you're not up to date with Mariah Carey's current love life, do not fret. I got you. So first, she and her billionaire boyfriend broke up, which appeared to be his doing because Mimi now wants to sue him for $50 million. Why? For wasting her time. No, seriously. But then, she quickly rebounded in a J.Lo-esque move (a woman whom she claims she doesn't know) by hooking up with her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka.
Now, the two are hellbent on making this relationship a thing. First, there were those awkward photos on the beach (that Wendy Williams hilariously eviscerated on her show) and now, there's this interview with E! News.
At the official premiere party for Mariah's upcoming E! reality show, Mariah's World, Bryan got to talking about the two, while Mariah remained hush-mouthed in her separate interview about the new fling- I mean, budding love.
"I've always had a thing for Mariah. I love her so much. Just make sure you tune into the show and you'll see kind of how everything happens," Tanaka said in a very shameless-plug kind of way. "We've been friends for a long time. I do a little dance move here and there and we have a good time. It will be fun."
Um, ok. Still, the 33-year-old wasn't done:
"Something connected with us back in the day and there was just a mutual admiration. 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, somehow."
Mariah had much less to say about the "friendship" between the two, though.
"It's really nice, especially when you've worked with somebody in the past and then you get to work with them again and just see how everybody's grown creatively and all that."
