Who Is Mariah Carey?

Mariah Carey, the known highest-certified artist in the world, started her career in 1988 when she caught Columbia Records’ head Tommy Mottola, who spent two weeks trying to look for her.

After years of being part of Columbia Records, Carey and Mottola fell in love, eventually leading to the two tying the knot in 1993. 

However, due to Carey’s affair with Derek Jeter, the former CEO of the Miami Marlins, the songbird and the musical mogul eventually ended their relationship after five years of marriage. 

Reports say that while the ex-couple was in the process of divorcing, Carey had been set up on a blind date with Miguel in Aspen, Colorado, which was said to be the place where they first met. 

After getting to know each other for months, the two sensations shocked the world when they announced they were finally dating. Their romance lasted for three years, until in 2001, the two decided to finally split up as unfixable challenges in their relationship suddenly arose. 

Why Did They Broke Up? 

After years of being together, fans of the two were so sure that they would be each other’s partners for life. However, after announcing their sudden break-up, many fans started wondering what may have gone wrong between them.

According to some reports, both Carey and Miguel have faced many challenges in their relationship that many of their fans have no idea they were going through. 

Since both are busy artists who work day and night to release albums one after another, their busy schedules were one of the factors that caused their relationship to crumble. 

On top of that, language barriers and cultural differences are also a must mentioned, as they also had a big toll on their communication. However, some reports state the two started having cracks in their bond after some alleged infidelities.

Despite their break-up, fans of the two can’t deny that Carey and Miguel had quite a blissful relationship at first. 

Based on Carey’s autobiography, she stated that Miguel was an authentic, over-the-top Latin lover she never knew she would be able to date. 

She went on to explain that after they both had a few drinks during their first date, she found herself having a hard time letting go of that drunk-off man she had spent her night with. 

Reports also say that Miguel was generous regarding his presents. Carey even revealed that a day after their first date, the Latin star gifted her a Bulgari necklace that surely cost a whopping number of dollars. 

However, that was not even the most extravagant thing Miguel had given her, since during Christmas last 1988, he surprised her with an entire planetarium-style hot tub she could swim into. 

By the looks of it, Luis Miguel didn’t hold back with his material display of adoration towards Mariah Carey throughout their relationship. Although they worked out at first, their differences caused them to reach a point where their relationship was no longer working. As sad as it may seem, at least they are now living their best lives, even if they are apart.
