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.
