A report by TMZ on Thursday also claims the R&B diva had some sort of rendezvous with one of her dancers during her Las Vegas residency.
Sources told the website that it was caught on camera for Mariah's reality show and it was a 'deal breaker' for James.
'James had huge reservations about Mariah's new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.'
Women's Day also claimed that the tycoon has allowed her to keep her $10m diamond engagement ring.
The pair became engaged in January after a whirlwind romance of less than a year.

The duo remained coy on the details of their impending nuptials, but Mariah did suggest that the wedding would be a low-key event rather than an ostentatious affair.
'I can't really talk about them right now because everything is still being figured out,' she teased, noting, 'I never said it was gonna be a big wedding', she told People magazine, earlier this year.
The seemingly unlikely couple first set tongues wagging in June last year when images emerged of them holding hands strolling around the romantic island of Capri in Italy.

Tie up your look with Mariah's Balmain dress
Mariah Carey alongside her now ex-fiance James Packer touched down in London and the superstar put on a glamorous display for her arrival.
She is quite the diva and is never one to rock a laid back look, choosing this lace up body-conscious dress and towering gladiator sandals for her traveling ensemble. She's quite the fashion lover.
Her dress is by Balmain, a brand which is also a favorite of the Kardashian clan. The lace-up front means the dress is as racy as you'd like it to be, but Mariah left hers loosely tied to ensure she showed off her assets.
The midi number being black is super flattering and the even better news is that it's now on sale at StyleBop (click right to shop it now).
If it's still a little pricey for you then head to the carousel below to find criss-cross tie options from the likes of Isla, Bardot, Haute Hippie and AX Paris. They'll all help you nail Mariah's style for less.
Both James and Mariah have learned a few lessons in love over the years with the pair having pieced together broken hearts from failed past romances.
Mariah fell out of love with her rapper husband Nick Cannon in 2014, but has since dusted herself off and seems to have found stability with Packer.
The singer and America's Got Talent host Nick married in the Bahamas in April 2008 after just six weeks of dating and a 10 year age difference.

Marriage to Nick changed Mariah's mind about starting a family after she had previously declared no interest in having kids, with the singer now a doting mother.
She and Nick, with whom she shares four-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, confirmed their split in April 2014 after months of speculation.
The news comes after Mariah announced the cancellation of most of her South American tour, earlier this week.
