The Engagement of Mimi: Mariah Carey Is Engaged
Billionaire meets millionaire—a tale as old as time.
Mariah Carey added one more diamond to her collection on Thursday evening (Jan. 21, 2016) when her boyfriend James Packer popped the question in New York City, according to E! News. The report states that her engagement bling weighs in at about 35 carats, but no wedding date has been set quite yet.
Packer, 48, is an Australian billionaire businessman who has been married twice before, and has three children with his former wife Erica Baxter. Carey was married to Nick Cannon from 2008 to 2014, with whom she has two 4-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
Carey recalled to Steve Harvey in November that the pair met in Aspen in 2014 at a movie premiere. “We were talking and laughing and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that,” she said. “So we hit it off.” The couple made their public debut at The Intern premiere in September.
