Mariah Carey Calls B.S. James Packer Wanted to Be On T.V.


James Packer now claims he was bullied by ex-fiancee Mariah Carey into participating in her reality show, but we obtained video that makes it clear ... the yacht owner was fully on board, sources connected to Mariah tell TMZ.

Our sources say James has now asked producers to scrub him from the series. We're told he's even asked to see proof he signed the appropriate releases, and turns out he did not. So, James may actually have a solid argument that his mug should not be shown on the program. 

But, as far as Packer being an unwilling participant ... check out the video we got, shot in Capri a few months back, before the engagement blew up. He clearly sees the cameras rolling, and is fully down with the drill.
