After seven years together, Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka have officially announced their amicable separation. Tanaka, who is a background dancer, shared the news on his personal Instagram page, expressing mixed emotions about the decision.

In his statement, Tanaka stated, “Dear friends and fans, with mixed emotions, I share this personal update regarding my amicable separation from Mariah Carey after seven extraordinary years together.” He emphasized that the decision to part ways was mutual, and as they navigate separate journeys, they do so with profound respect and gratitude for the time they shared.

Despite the separation, Tanaka conveyed that they remain on good terms. “Mariah’s dedication to her family and her commitment to her craft have inspired us during our journey. I want to express my love and appreciation for Mariah and her incredible children, whose warmth and kindness have enriched my life in ways words cannot capture.”
