But she wasn't alone for long. Just four months after the split she officially confirmed in February that she was dating her backup dancer Bryan, who is 13 years her junior.

Speaking to the Associated Press, Mariah referred to Bryan as her 'boyfriend' while explaining her reasons for not discussing her personal life in the media.

She said: "I really don't talk about my personal life because that's what I used to do and it really worked for a minute, back, a while ago.

"I just don't feel comfortable talking about my personal life... Me and my boyfriend don't want to do that."
