Said the source, "James does not want to be on her TV show, and it's a sticking point. For now, the wedding is off, and they might break up altogether."

Packer, a businessman and philanthropist, is worth more than $4 billion. Carey, meanwhile, just set the final dates for her Las Vegas residency for spring 2017.

Carey was married to Nick Cannon from 2008 to 2015, and they had twins Moroccan and Monroe, 5, in 2011.
