Billionaire woos Mariah
Has Mariah Carey found love again?
The diva, who is separated from her husband, America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon, was photographed walking hand in hand in Italy with Australian billionaire James Packer on Friday.
The Daily Mail reported that Packer – who had previously been linked with model Miranda Kerr – has been “aggressively” pursuing Carey (45) for months.
Carey – who has four-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan – is said to have met Packer through American film maker Brett Ratner.
Packer (47) is believed to be worth about $4.6 billion (R56 billion), according to Forbes. He has three children with former wife Erica.
Carey and Cannon split last year, six years after their whirlwind marriage. The pair – who had a 12-year age difference – married after just two months of dating.
Tabloids speculated that they split after Cannon’s on-air revelation’s about his sexual partners, which included Kim Kardashian. TMZ.com reported that Carey was furious when Nick revealed a list of five celebrities he had slept with during a candid interview with Power 106 radio – causing the irreparable rift.
Throughout her career, Carey has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, making her one of the bestselling singers of all time. She has also won five Grammy Awards.
