Mariah Carey Allegedly Pays Boyfriend Bryan Tanaka $12,000 Weekly For Being Her New Manager
Mariah Carey‘s 34-year-old boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, who now plays three roles in her life including being her manager, her backup dancer and her partner is reportedly being paid $12k per week by the singer to run her career.
This comes days after the 47-year-old singer and her former Russian manager Stella Bulochnikov parted ways after working together for almost three years.
While speaking with Page Six on behalf of both women, Bulochnikov said;
“After working together for almost three years, Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov have determined that it is in their mutual best interest to part ways on day-to-day management.”
“During their time working together, they have accomplished great things, including, most recently, Mariah Carey’s new music and motion picture projects for this upcoming holiday season. Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavors.”
Now there are unconfirmed reports that Bryan who has been made Mariah’s manager was responsible for orchestrating Stella’s departure.
A source told TheJasmineBrand that since Stella left, ‘The boyfriend backup dancer definitely isn’t the right person to run her career.’
Another source adds, ‘This is a full-on Britney-and-Kevin Federline situation. Brian is a backup dancer, and knows nothing about managing an iconic artist.’
‘He has totally manipulated the situation to take over her life and push out everyone else, and Mariah just can’t see it.’
It is rumored that Mariah pays Bryan around $12,000 a week for running her life. No word on what the alleged figure necessitates. The source says
Mariah, who reportedly underwent weight loss surgery last month, is yet to release an official statement as to whom her new manager is.
