Mariah Carey split from fiancé James Packer back in October, but she some how got caught up in his business during a trip to Israel this week.
Mariah was in Israel to promote a skin care line, Premier Dead Sea Cosmetics, but all reporters wanted to ask her about was Packer, who is wanted for questioning by Israeli police with regards to corruption and illegal gift giving to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is a friend of Packer's.
“I don’t know where the motherf---er is,” Carey said in an interview with Israel's Channel 2 News. “How am I supposed to know? I don’t know, for real. I really have no idea about the political stuff that goes on, I don’t pay attention to it.”
- What gives? Packer is under investigation for allegedly giving lavish gifts like holidays and use of his private jet gifts to Netanyahu’s son Yair, as well as his wife, Sara. He even reportedly gave Sara and the head of Israel's Mossad intelligence agency tickets to Carey’s August 2015 concert in Israel.
- In another interview Mariah added, “Oh, now they want to blame me? Someone wants to blame me for something now? What did I do? I didn’t do anything."
All the questioning apparently put Mariah in a foul mood because eventually decided to cancel a reception that had been planned for today.
