Mariah Carey Is Engaged to Billionaire James Packer
Mariah Carey will be hearing wedding bells soon. The 45-year-old singer is engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer.
The singer’s rep told Billboard that the “happy couple” got engaged in New York on Thursday night (Jan. 21) after dating for six months.
According to TMZ, Parker asked the big question at a secret dinner gathering at Eleven Madison Park with the singer’s close friends and gave her massive engagement ring.
Packer is one of Australia’s richest men — 4th to be exact — as he inherited several casinos from his father. Investments in real estate also added to his riches. No word on when the wedding will happen but if it’s moving as fast as their relationship, fans should expect pictures of the nuptials very soon.
“They fell head over heels in love with one another,” a source told E! News of the newly engaged couple. “It’s crazy how perfect they are together, they both know it and couldn’t be happier.”
This will be Carey’s third marriage after Nick Cannon filed for divorce in December 2014. They were together for six years and had two children together before the split. Carey was also married to music mogul Tommy Mottola in the ’90s. Packer has been married twice before as well and has three children from the unions.
