Mariah Carey at Beacon Theatre
Before their beachside photo shoot, the plethora of public outings, and PDA-filled pics, Bryan Tanaka was simply Mariah Carey’s flirtatious backup dancer. However, on Sunday night’s episode of Mariah’s World fans were able to see just how the two’s romance began as Bryan confessed, during the episode, to having strong feelings for his “boss.”
“I feel like our chemistry is not just professional,” he confessed. “There's great chemistry professionally, but when we talk it feels like there's a connection that is more than just what we've had for the past ten years.” He later said, “There's something undeniable with this attraction that we have for each other. It feels like we're meant to be together.”
The backup dancer didn’t stop there. While talking to a friend he revealed that he loved Miss Carey.
“Man I love Mariah, she's thoughtful, she's inspiring. I don't know there's something so unique about her, she's the queen.”
During the time of the show’s filming Mariah was engaged to billionaire James Packer. However, that didn’t seem to stop the dancer as he said, “I wouldn't cross that line if it didn't feel the way it does.
Despite being engaged, Mariah maintained her flirtatious relationship with Bryan throughout the episode, and even admitted to feeling something between them too!
“I'm not gonna say, 'Oh I don't feel the chemistry or whatever it is.' Tanaka is a great person, and I'm really happy that we've reconnected," she confessed.
Clearly, it was more than just a little something, as the two have been linked together since her split from James. The two even engaged in a PDA-filled beachside photo shoot last November!
