Mariah Carey Dating Australian Billionaire
Mariah Carey has moved on…but not with who we thought. While rumors swirled that the songstress had begun making sweet swirly music with her longtime friend and collaborator Brett Ratner…it turns out he was actually playing matchmaker for MiMi and linking her up with her new love interest. Via TMZ:
Mariah Carey has got a new boyfriend, TMZ has learned, a billionaire who’s the 4th wealthiest person down under.
The guy is James Packer, a 47-year-old entertainment mogul who sold a media company and now owns a string of hotels and casinos around Australia and other countries. He’s worth an estimated $4.6 billion, according to Forbes.
We got this pic of Mariah and James taken Friday in Capri, Italy. They’re staying on Packer’s yacht and we’re told they’ll be on the boat for “an extended vacation.” After Capri, it’s on to Cannes and St. Tropez.
As for how they met … Brett Ratner.
Sources close to Mariah tell us James has been aggressively pursuing Mariah for months, and he succeeded.
Nice. Did MiMi step it up a notch with her new boo?
