US pop queen Mariah Carey is said to be the newest love of casino mogul James Packer, the Australian newspaper Sunday Mail reported.
The Australian tabloid splashed pictures of the romantic couple holidaying in Italy as well as in Mediterranean.
Though seen in public together for the first time, the pair had first met 18 months ago in Colorado ski resort. At that time Carey was married to US rapper Nick Cannon and Packer was still getting over his divorce from model Erica Baxter.
Carey split from Cannon in 2014 and for Packer, Carey will be his 10th flame with former ones been Deni Hines, Ulrika Jonsson, Tania Bryer, Jennifer Flavin, Joan Severance, Kate Fischer, Jodhi Meares, Erica Baxter and Miranda Kerr.
Despite Carey sporting a ring on her wedding finger, the source quoted by Sunday Mail denied they were engaged. “With both being successful in their own right, parents, and in their mid-40s, friends say the pair have more in common than others might realise,” the Sunday Mail report said.
