It was claimed her overall settlement package is valued between $5 and $10 million.

The site also speculated that the hit maker has been able to keep the large diamond engagement ring he gave her.?

Mariah has continued to wear her engagement ring over recent months, even after the final terms were agreed on.

The site also reported the rock is worth less than the $10 million that has been widely reported.

Mariah based part of her settlement claim on the fact that she uprooted her life and moved to Los Angeles to be with the businessman.

She also accused James of doing something awful to her assistant while on a yacht in Greece.

The 48-year-old singer announced she was pulling the plug on a few of her upcoming performances earlier this month due to an upper respiratory infection.

And Mariah subsequently took to social media to announce she is scrapping even more gigs from her All I Want For Christmas Is You World tour because she has been told by medical experts she needs 'a few extra days of rest.'

She recently wrote on her Instagram account: 'I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones; it's certainly nice to remember what we are grateful for! Like most, I'm thankful for my overall health... for which I need a bit more time to get right.
