Los Angeles - Mariah Carey insists she's "doing great" following her split from James Packer.

The Hero singer - who has five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-husband Nick Cannon - called off her engagement to the businessman last month but insisted she isn't too heartbroken by the situation.

After talk show host Ellen DeGeneres noted how she was trying on wedding dresses in clips from her upcoming reality show Mariah's World but they are no longer together, Mariah said: "Now it's a whole friggin' thing."

Ellen then asked how the 46-year-old singer was feeling and she replied: "I think I'm doing well...No, I'm actually...Everything happens for a reason. Things are the way they are."

But Mariah didn't seem to want to dwell on the subject and made an attempt to change the subject.

She said: "It's kind of difficult to talk about it at the moment.

"So, I'm just going to compliment you on these decorations once again because they are fabulous, and I am here, among them."

It was recently claimed the Without You singer is "ready to move on" from James and feels relieved they never made it down the aisle.

A source said: "She's ready to move on. She feels like she dodged a bullet ... The negotiations aren't going well. At the best, she'll keep the ring."
