Mariah Carey burns her $250,000 wedding dress following split from James Packer

Mariah Carey has made a powerful statement regarding her failed engagement to James Packer in her latest music video for the single "I Don't." In the video, the star wears her custom Valentino wedding gown as she flees from paparazzi in the back of a car, only to eventually take the dress off and burn it as she sings about the breakup.

The lyrics of the tune include: "Said you would always be mine/Feeding me nothing but lies/ I was so gone, I admit it/ Happy messed up for a minute." The GRAMMY winner spoke about the single during an episode of Mariah's World, saying: "Ever since the tour wrapped I took some time just to process my feelings and I started writing a song to express what I've been going through. And if you're not getting the love that you need from someone that you're supposed to be in a real relationship with, then why remain in that situation?"

Mariah's new single is about her split from James Packer.

The star originally spoke about her split from the Australian billionaire during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. At the time, Ellen said: "You were engaged and you were trying on wedding dresses in the docu-series. We see the behind the scenes of that, which is pretty personal. And now, you're not together anymore," to which Mariah replied: "Now it's a whole friggin' thing… Everything happens for a reason. Things are the way they are. It's kind of difficult to talk about it at the moment."


James proposed to Mariah with a 35-carat diamond engagement ring in January 2016 before they parted ways in October.
