Mariah Carey is currently on vacation with her 2 children with ex-husband Nick Cannon, her usual entourage and Australian billionaire James Packer, who happens to be her new boyfriend. The two have been dating only for a few days, but they’re already talking marriage, it has emerged.
No word yet if an actual proposal took place, with Packer down on one knee holding a diamond ring in his hand, but TMZ says that the two “are already talking marriage,” even though they have only been dating for a few days.
Apparently, Packer has been carrying a torch for Mariah for some time and even flew to Vegas to see her live and get to meet her and exchange a few words with her.
He has been pursuing her relentlessly ever since, it is said. During Mariah’s vacation, they crossed paths again, thanks to common pal Brett Ratner, and they hit it off instantly.
Here’s the strangest part: “Mariah is open to tying the knot with James,” TMZ says. She even let him understand that it will happen as soon as her divorce from Nick Cannon becomes final.
