Mariah Carey is now dating Australian billionaire James Packer, a 47-year-old entertainment mogul who owns a bunch of hotels and casinos in different countries.
The American singer who recently divorced her husband America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon, was seen holding hand with James Packer in Capri, Italy, on Friday, June 19.
Packer, 47, had been pursuing the singer “aggressively” for months, according to entertainment website TMZ, and they are now set to cruise around the Mediterranean together on the Packer family yacht, Arctic P.
Despite being friends “for years”, according to sources, it is believed the casino mogul and Mariah Carey, 45, reconnected through filmmaker Brett Ratner.
Ratner is Packer’s business partner; the pair founded entertainment company RatPac Entertainment in 2013. He is also the creative force behind Carey’s film clip for her latest single Infinity.
The entertainment mogul owns a bunch of hotels and casinos in a slew of different countries, so we’re sure he’s going to show MiMi a good time at the next stops on their world tour, Cannes and St. Tropez
