Mariah Carey and her longtime boyfriend Bryan Tanaka have decided to go their separate ways after seven years together due to Bryan wanting children, it is reported.

A source claimed to PageSix that the reason for their split was because they wanted different things. They claimed: “He wants to have a family. That’s not where she is at.”

Mariah is already a proud mum to 12 year old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, who she shares with ex-husband Nick Cannon.

Speculation of her split from Bryan started last month when she kicked off her Merry Christmas One and All! tour in and Bryan appeared to be absent.

The All I Want For Christmas singer is also reportedly spending the festive season in Aspen without Bryan, who has been known to accompany her on the trips in the past.

A source claimed to People that this will be the first time in years the duo are not travelling together during the Christmas period.

The duo, who began dating in 2016, also haven’t been spotted out together since March this year when they were out celebrating Mariah’s birthday. This was around the same time as their anniversary where Bryan shared a photo with the superstar along with the caption: “This is one of my favorite pictures. Ever. Happy Anniversary my Beautiful Queen. 3/27”.

OK! has contacted Mariah Carey’s representatives for comment.

Mariah and Bryan, who have not publicly addressed their split rumours, first met in the mid-2000s where he joined her on her Adventures of Mimi tour as a backup dancer.

It wasn’t until 2016, when Mariah ended her relationship with James Packer, that the duo started dating.

Bryan told E! News in 2016: “Something connected with us back in the day and there was just a mutual admiration. She saw something in me that I actually didn't recognize at first, from that it was over. It was set in history that we were gonna be connected some way, some how”.

Earlier this month, Mariah revealed that she has been “looking forward to Christmas” for the “whole year”.

She told People: “I've been looking forward to this Christmas for, like, the whole year. Since last year — because last year wasn't the greatest. I'm thankful for them all, but it wasn't my most fun version of Christmas ever. Come hell or high water, this year, this Christmas, we are going to have fun."
