Mariah Carey and James Packer got engaged in January this year after seven months of dating, and just last month it was revealed that they’d broken up.

The songstress appeared on The Ellen Show on Wednesday, and broke her silence on the very public split.

“That’s a whole friggin’ thing” she admitted to Ellen during the chat.

When asked how she’s feeling “mentally’ and whether she’s “happy,” Mariah responded, “I think I’m doing well.”

She added: “No. I’m actually. Everything happens for a reason, things are the way they are.”

Ellen then asked about James’ reluctance to star in Mariah’s new docu-series Mariah’s World, asking: “He didn’t want to be in the docu-series at all. And yet he’s in it. You see him. It’s kind of difficult to talk about it at the moment.”

The couple had reportedly split a couple of weeks after a fight on a trip to Mykonos in Greece.
