Congratulations are be in order! Mariah Carey and her billionaire boyfriend James Packer are engaged, according to reports that came out on Jan. 21. After just 8 months of dating, the couple is allegedly already ready to tie the knot! Here’s the scoop.
Mariah Carey, 45, and Australian billionaire James Packer, 48, have only been together for eight months, but after a whirlwind romance the two are tying the knot according to reports! James allegedly popped the question on Jan. 21 and the pop star couldn’t be more thrilled. Here’s what we know.
We absolutely did not see this coming! Mariah and James have only been together since June 2015, so when TMZ reported that the couple is already tying the knot, we were shocked! According to the website, James flew the couple’s closest friends to New York City on Jan. 21 and then got down on one knee at a private dinner party and asked her to spend her life with him. What else could she say but yes?!
The ring is a whopping 35 carats, according to E!, which is absolutely mind-blowing for it’s size, but not it’s price. That’s because James is the 4th wealthiest man in Australia! No date has been set for the sure-to-be-unprecedented event, but we’re positive it will be full of butterflies, glitter, and no expense will be spared. This marriage will be lucky number 3 for both Mariah and James, who have each been married twice before. Mariah’s ex, Nick Cannon, had a very surprising reaction when he heard the news!
The pair has only been together for 8 months. However, we aren’t completely shocked that they took the next step so quickly, because they have already been living together for 3! After just 5 months of dating, Mariah moved into James’ posh Beverly Hills home, and totally redecorated. If James didn’t mind that, then we’re sure they’ll get along just fine in a marriage! Congrats, you two!
