Mariah Carey is "ready to move on" from James Packer.

The 'Without You' hitmaker is reportedly glad she split from the Australian billionaire and feels she has "dodged a bullet" by ending their relationship before they walked down the aisle.

A source told Entertainment Tonight: "She's ready to move on. She feels like she dodged a bullet ... The negotiations aren't going well. At the best, she'll keep the ring."

Time has been the best healer for the 46-year-old singer - who has five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her ex-husband Nick Cannon - as a source previously claimed she was "devastated" by the split.

An insider shared: "The split has been devastating for Mariah. She loved James and was planning to marry him ... She made life changes for this man to prepare for their future as husband and wife, even relocating to Los Angeles, at James' request, so he could be closer to his children. Everything she has done over the past year is to prove how fully committed she is to their life together. She really wanted this to work. And then, completely out of the blue, it imploded."

The pair reportedly split after having an argument when they were in Greece.

A source said: "It started in Greece [with] some sort of outburst [from James] which everyone heard. [He told her,] I don't know if I can do this. I can barely take care of my own children."

And the couple failed to attend a planned meet up in Los Angeles back in October to "talk through everything as adults".

An insider claimed: "Mariah and James never met up after that. And they haven't spoken. The way the split news was handled was incredibly upsetting to her."
