Music superstar Mariah Carey exuded happiness in a photo that showed her sharing a sweet moment with her good-looking boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka. The couple looked completely smitten with each other.


Acclaimed singer Mariah Carey, who is celebrated for her incredible singing prowess, recently shared a rare picture of herself with her younger boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka.

The Instagram snap showed Carey, 52, and Tanaka, 38, sweetly smiling at the camera. The admirable couple appeared to be feeling festive as they wore flower necklaces around their necks.

In a celebratory mood, the legendary singer wrote a sweet birthday greeting addressed to Tanaka. While it was a short message, fans felt Carey's overflowing love for her boyfriend.

The duo's photo earned a plethora of praises from their fans. Their admirers expressed support for the "Emancipation of Mimi" hitmaker and Tanaka's relationship. One fan commented:




Tanaka, who previously worked with Carey as her backup dancer, also paid a sweet tribute online to the "Butterfly" songstress on her 52nd birthday.

The "Always Be My Baby" hitmaker has been in an on-and-off relationship with Tanaka since 2016, but the couple appears to be fully enjoying each other's company as of late.

Tanaka, who considers himself the singer's number one fan, recently celebrated with Carey after she released her memoir, "The Meaning of Mariah Carey," in September.


Carey didn't include her relationship with the professional dancer in her best-selling memoir, but the "We Belong Together" singer wrote in her book about her past relationship with men.

One of these men was her former fiancé and Australian billionaire James Packer. Unfortunately, she and the business tycoon broke up after a nine-month engagement.

Carey has been facing family controversies since she published her memoir.


Before Tanaka and Packer, Carey was married twice - to "Wild 'n Out" host Nick Cannon from 2008 to 2016 and renowned music executive Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1997.

The Grammy-winning artist shares nine-year-old twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe with Cannon. In her memoir, she opened up about her family and career.

She also revealed details about her challenging childhood. In a previous interview, she explained that her tough childhood may have caused her to develop bipolar disorder.

Carey has been facing family controversies since she published her memoir. Her estranged siblings, Morgan and Alison, reportedly sued her for destroying their reputations.
