James Packer & Mariah Carey Are Engaged
James Packer, Australian gambling mogul and billionaire, recently became engaged to one of the world’s most famous singers and a multi-Grammy award winner, Mariah Carey. James Packer is well known for inheriting control over Consolidated Press Holdings Limited which has investments in Crown Resorts, the recently acquired BetEasy rebranded as CrownBet, and RatPac-Dune Entertainment. He also recently opened a luxury hotel in Manila called Nobu Hotel and has been heavily investing in the hotel and gaming industry in the Philippines. In May of 2015 Packer’s net worth was assessed at being over 6 billion USD.
Mariah Carey and James Packer have been together for just under a year and have been reported as having a fairy tale relationship these past several months. After meeting at a movie premiere in Aspen, Colorado in 2014 they have traveled the world together in a series of international dates ranging from Ibiza, United States, St Bart’s, Australia, Italy, and more. It came as no surprise that Packer popped the big question while visiting Carey’s hometown just a few short days ago.
With James Packer being one of the top 10 richest Australians the ring was nothing short of breathtaking. The ring is said to be approximately 35 carats and of world class craftsmanship. However, the engagement ring is only a symbol of the whirlwind love affair they’ve experienced together as a match that is said to be nothing short of perfect. James and Mariah have each been married twice before making this the third marriage for both of them. Each will be bringing together children from their previous relationships. James has three children all under the age of eight and Mariah has a set of twins at the age of four.
Even as this relationship has blossomed both James Packer and Mariah Carey have not left their careers behind. Mariah will return to Cesar’s Palace to begin the third leg of her Las Vegas residency. She will then set out on another world performance tour. James Packer is expected to accompany Mariah through the majority of her world tour as he continues in his philanthropic and business efforts.
