Mariah Carey has revealed that she never had sex with her ex-fiance James Packer -- despite being together for 18 months.

"(James and I) didn't have a physical relationship, to be honest with you," she wrote in her memoir according to The Guardian, "If it was a relationship that mattered, it's in the book. If not, it didn't occur."

Mariah got engaged to Packer, 53, in January 2016. The pair had dated for less than a year. He called off their engagement in October 2016 after a fiery argument in Greece.

In the book, Mariah praised her ex, Derek Jeter, who she credits with giving her the strength to leave her marriage to music exec Tommy Mottola.

"He was in the right place at the right time, and he was there for the right purpose," Mariah revealed. "It was the idea of him, rather than the reality of him, that was so magnetic. In the end, I'll chalk up our ending to the fact that we couldn't live up to each other's fantasies."
