Mariah Carey has ended her relationship with Bryan Tanaka. Rumors say that the Grammy-winning singer got tired of being like a cash register for her backup dancer boyfriend.

Reports say that the couple dated for less than six months, but Carey has not commented on the alleged breakup. Even so, she posted a few pictures of her together with Tanaka on her Instagram account over the past few months.

The "Don't Forget About Us" singer even shared a photo of them together in a bathtub in February and they looked happy. Her latest post about them features a picture of her sharing a kiss with the backup dancer, which kind of confirms the claims about their relationship.

However, all good things must come to an end. Recently, reports are making rounds that the couple have called it quits. Carey is rumored to have ended their relationship because she already got tired of spending too much on her former beau.

The singer's backup dancer boyfriend allegedly asked Carey for expensive things such as pieces of jewelry and high-priced shoes. He is also into brands like Gucci and Balmain. Speculations also suggest that Carey paid for everything the dancer had bought — even expensive watches and necklaces.

Rumors also have it that Tanaka had been extremely jealous over Carey's relationship with her former flame, Nick Cannon.

Carey and Cannon went on separate ways last year. Even so, the two remained friends presumably for the sake of their daughters Monroe and Moroccan. However, Carey being friendly with her ex-husband allegedly did not sit well with Tanaka.

Just last month, Carey and Cannon took their twins to the "2017 Kid's Choice Award." Rumors say that the backup dancer felt "disrespected" because of it. To retaliate, the dancer allegedly flirted with other women.
