It’s often said it’s better to give than to receive but Mariah Carey is apparently happy to do both.

According to Life & Style magazine, the 47-year-old gives her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka $25,000 a month specifically so he can buy her gifts.

Sources claim the pop diva – who is worth around $520 million – is all too aware of the fact her backup dancer beau doesn’t earn nearly as much as she does.
