Out with the old and in with the new. Five months after Nick Cannon filed for divorce from Mariah Carey, the singer seems to be moving on with billionaire James Packer. The ‘We Belong Together’ singer was pictured holding hands with James in Italy on June 19. See the photo!
Mariah Carey had one sweet day with her new love interest, James Packer, in Capri, Italy on June 19. The 45-year-old singer had a huge smile on her face as she was photographed holding the 47-year-old billionaire’s hand during their romantic getaway.
Mariah seems to have officially moved on since splitting with husband Nick Cannon. Mariah and her new man are allegedly staying on a yacht in Capri, but will soon head to Cannes and St. Tropez, Us Weekly reports. While walking around town with James, the fourth wealthiest man in Australia — he allegedly worth an estimated $4.6 billion, Mariah wore a tight cleavage-baring dress. (See the photo here.)
“He’s wooing her,” a source told Us Weekly. Another source mentioned that James co-runs RatPac Entertainment with Mariah’s good friend, Brett Ratner, who helped set them up.
Mariah Carey & James Packer: Brett Ratner Played Matchmaker
“Brett knows a ton of people with a ton of money. He always needs to be where the cash is to finance his film ideas and James has become a friend and Brett knew that Mariah would be a great fit for him. Brett was definitely the matchmaker when everyone thought he himself was going for Mariah’s heart,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
And Brett seems to have done a good job at setting them up. “Mariah thinks James is a very nice guy. She trusts Brett’s instincts and is really going to give it a chance,” our source adds.
So much for her Match.com profile.
