Mariah Carey was spotted looking pretty cozy with her ex boyfriend, backup dancer Bryan Tanaka, 34, on Friday, June 2. The two were seen holding hands after they dined at swanky Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. This latest PDA further fueled rumors that the romance may be back on again.
The 47-year-old Fantasy singer was showing major cleavage in a low cut black mini dress that she wore cinched at the waist by a black belt. Mariah wore her long hair down in loose waves and accessorized her date night look with black platform booties, a red purse, and diamond jewelry. Bryan was also looking sexy in a black v-neck and olive green pants.
Rumors of a possible reconciliation started swirling when Mariah posted a throw back photo of the couple eating ice cream on May 20. The pair was caught by photographers later that same day kissing during a dinner date at CUT restaurant, also in Beverly Hills.
The pair first met in 2006 when Bryan worked as a backup dancer on Mariah’s Adventures of Mimi tour. They didn’t begin dating until shortly after Mariah’s breakup with her billionaire fiancé James Packer. The relationship lasted about 5 months before Mariah reportedly broke it off in order to focus on her kids. She and ex-husband singer and television host Nick Cannon called it quits in 2014, but share custody of twins, Monroe and Morrocan, 6.
Mariah’s split with fiancé James and the start of her relationship with Bryan was featured on the E! docu-series Mariah’s World. The diva was also not shy about sharing some pretty intimate photos Instagram, including a Valentine’s Day pic of the couple cuddling in a bathtub. If these recent sightings are any indication, the romance is heating up once again.
