Diamonds are for Mimi

June 27, 2009

Did you know that in 2006 the son of the Sultan of Brunei, Prince Azim, sent Mariah Carey an 8 carat platinum-set diamond necklace and matching ring?

The multimillion dollar gift was delivered to the songstress in suitably over-the-top style – by private jet.

There’s no word on whether the attention-getting gift netted Prince Azim a relationship with Miss Carey (if indeed that was his aim), but she has subsequently married someone else, so I guess in the long haul, even 8 carats isn’t enough if you’re not the right guy.

And incidentally, good to see Mariah didn’t take Scarlett O’Hara’s mother’s advice on gifts from gentlemen admirers too seriously!
