Mariah and James first met in 2014 and announced their engagement in January of this year.

“She’s been a friend for so, so many years,” Brett continued.

“I’m not allowed to say how many because that will age us. But I call her my Aries sister because we’re born like a day apart. And she’s such a great friend. I directed most of her music videos, at least the best ones.”

He added that Mariah will be a “gorgeous bride” adding, “she’s done it once or twice so I think she’d had some experience.”
