James Packer has been edited out of Mariah Carey’s reality TV show trailer.
The billionaire businessman was reportedly due to appear in the first six episodes of ‘Mariah’s World’ but there is no sign of him in the latest trailer for the E! docu-series and it has been claimed that he has been removed completely from the show.
According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph: "Packer was supposed to appear in the first six episodes, but his team has been demanding that the network remove him."
And Entertainment Tonight said James’ removal from the show was causing drama for the network.
An insider explained: "[James] is demanding that E! and Carey remove him from all footage of ‘Mariah’s World’.
"He wants E! to reopen all the footage they got of him and edit him out of the show.’
"This poses a threat to the much-hyped docuseries as the bulk of the show is them planning a wedding."
However, a source close to James said: "The show hasn’t even finished shooting. He has not asked to be taken out. It is totally false."
The new trailer does feature 46-year-old Mariah’s hunky back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka, who is said to be helping her through the split.
An insider recently explained: "After all she’s been through, she’s like, ‘I’ll do what I want.’ She’s enjoying the attention from Bryan."
