If Mariah Carey is good at anything — besides hitting insane high notes — it’s drama. She got engaged to Australian businessman and billionaire James Packer in January after they dated for a short time. But last week, news broke that the couple was on the outs — and things got messy pretty quickly.

US Weekly reports multiple reasons for the split: her extravagant spending, her close relationship with a male backup dancer, him wanting a more private life, and a huge, mysterious incident on a private yacht in Greece, last month that involves her assistant, sealed the couple’s fate.

TMZ reports that Mariah has requested a whopping $50 million from Packer for the inconvenience of uprooting her life to Los Angeles and traumatizing her after that thing on the boat. While there is speculation that the couple might still reconcile, one thing is for sure: Mariah will not be a pawn in #WasteHerTime2k16.

But what the hell happened in Greece?!
