Mariah Carey and James Packer

As Mariah Carey’s new reality show – Mariah’s World – prepares to air in December, Carey is dodging questions about the breakdown of her engagement to Australian businessman James Packer.

Asked if the eight-part series would show what really went on to cause the split, Carey told Reuters. “Do we ever know what’s really real?… I hope we learn a lesson of being good people.”

Packer, 49, and twice-married Carey, 46, started a highly-publicised relationship in June 2015, and in January, the Australian proposed with a massive 35-carat diamond engagement ring.

In October, the engagement was suddenly off, sparking conflicting rumors about who backed out, and why.

Packer appears briefly in the first episode of “Mariah’s World,” when the couple enjoyed happier times in the spring vacationing on yachts.

Carey is seen lounging in lingerie, trying on a wedding dress, and debating whether to wear a tiara.

Filming started while the “We Belong Together” singer was preparing for her European tour that began in March and the first episode shows her reluctantly deciding to postpone her wedding to Packer because of her work commitments.

Carey, the world’s best-selling female singer, says she wants the show to capture “behind the scenes and the moments… when you are getting ready to go on stage and putting on a tour.”

“I don’t think people really know who I am, or the different sides of my personality, so I am excited about it,” Carey told Reuters.

Although the show was first promoted as showing Carey planning her wedding, it remains to be seen how much Packer will now appear.

On Wednesday, Carey told Ellen DeGeneres in an appearance on her talk show that her relationship with Packer was “kind of difficult to talk about” and described the split as “a whole friggin’ thing.”

“Mariah’s World” shows Carey to be heavily involved in planning and rehearsing for her European tour, as well as flirting with her back-up dancers.

“There is a lot to get stressed out about and you do go through a lot of angst,” she told Reuters. But “if I’m able to have my music… it’s my saving grace.”

    I never knew she and James Packer called off their engagement. I must be living under a rock. I don’t understand white people though! You could profess your undying love for someone this minute, and the next minute, he or she is your ex. That’s how they roll. I never really liked Mariah. Her sick, dying sister laid critically ill in the hospital, unable to foot her medical bills, while she and James were busy globetrotting. I didn’t also like the fact that she was always dissing JLO. She also had issues with Nicky Minaj and Eminem. It is not for nothing that they call her the queen of shade. You can have all the fame and fortune, but you won’t be able to keep a man if you have a nasty attitude. Is she going to do a diss track for James Packer like she did for her ex husband?
