Mariah Carey has sensationally claimed that she has only had sex with five people in her entire life!

“I haven’t had that many, but there has been a variety pack,” the five-time Grammy-winning singer told Cosmopolitan when asked about her dating history.

“I’ve only been with five people in my life, so I’m kind of a prude, honestly, compared to most others in the field.”

Mariah Carey has been in several high profile relationships, which makes her history somewhat easy to keep track of…

The 49-year-old self-confessed diva married Sony exec Tommy Mottola back in 1993 and got divorced in 1997. She was in a three-year relationship with Mexican singer Luis Miguel from 1998 to 2001. And then, Mariah wed Nick Cannon in 2008, who she shares 8-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with. Their divorce became official in 2016.

MC was then briefly engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer (she reportedly kept and then sold the $10 million 35-carat diamond-and-platinum engagement ring he gave her!) and is now currently dating 36-year-old back up dancer and choreographer Bryan Tanaka.

Does this mean we know every single person she has been intimate with? Does this news surprise you, or do you think Mimi miscounted?
