Nothing can keep Mariah Carey down for long–not even nasty breakup rumors. 

The ESSENCE Festival 2016 performer spoke out for the first time since news of her breakup with billionaire fiancé James Packer hit the timeline. 

Carey took to Instagram to throw a little shade as she lived her best life during Halloweekend in Australia. 

Captioning the photo of she and a friend with, “#Realfriends who don’t read Woman’s Day #wedontknowyou We love you #Australianlambs”

Last week, the world stopped when reports hit that the soon-to-be reality star and Packer were calling it quits and their separation was no where near smooth. 

With speculation of mental instability to a rumored demand for a $50 million inconvenience fee, this split doesn’t sound like it will have a happy ending anytime soon between MiMi and her former man but it’s to see the lifelong diva is keeping her head up.
