Mariah Carey Pulls an "I Don't Know Her" When Asked About Her Rumored New Boyfriend (PopSugar)

Mariah Carey and her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka, sent romance rumors into overdrive this week when they were spotted getting hot and heavy on the beach in Hawaii, but the legendary singer isn't quite ready to talk publicly about the new relationship.

After telling Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb that keeping an amicable partnership with Nick is "important for the kids [twins Moroccan and Monroe]," Mariah was grilled about Bryan. "I refuse to answer under the grounds that it may incriminate me," she said with a sly smile before expertly changing the subject. Watch the clip above.
