Mariah Carey is blaming her breakup with James Packer on Scientology influences. Sources close to the superstar say she believes Packer’s business manager Tommy Davis, a former Church of Scientology spokesperson, has poisoned their relationship.
Insiders in Carey’s camp claim Davis has taken control of Packer’s finances, and even allege he has put the Australian billionaire on a detoxification program known at the church as a “Purification Rundown” and ordered Packer to “disconnect” from the diva.
Sources close to Packer, 49, strongly deny this and say his split with Carey, 46, was due to her excessive spending and the drama surrounding her as she films a reality show for E!.
Carey was stunned when she was asked to leave the billionaire casino magnate’s yacht in Greece in September and was then ordered to move out of Packer’s Calabasas, Calif., home immediately.
