Mariah Carey: 'I never thought I'd have babies with someone and then get divorced'

Superstar Mariah Carey has opened up about divorcing Nick Cannon, who is the father of their twins, and explained that it has been emotionally challenging. 

Chatting to Complex magazine about the split, she confessed that she didn't ever think she would have children with someone and then end up living a separate life from that person:

"I never thought I would have babies with someone and then get divorced. Like, 'Oh, great job. Repeat your past.' But life happens and it was supposed to happen. It's fine. For [my children], I wish it hadn't happened that way. For me, it was ... Guess it's over. Call it a day."

She also opened up about her engagement to Australian billionaire James Packer and added that they're both very busy, but they make time for one another because they want to: "I don't expect him to be at every little thing that I do, and vice versa. He's got a lot of stuff on his plate and so do I. There's a mutual understanding."

"We would like for it [their pre-nuptial agreement] not to be a big thing, but the reality is it has to be. Because there's things that are specifically mine, and he's got huge friggin' conglomerate stuff and I'm not looking to take that from him. So it has to be dealt with. Anytime you get married to somebody [it does] - and I should know. This'll be marriage number three. My bishop said to me, 'I don't want you to go Elizabeth Taylor on me!' I said, 'I'm not' - and then I said 'Bye.'"
