Mariah Carey engaged to an Australian casino billionaire James Packer, according to someone close to her.
Packer, who controls casino operator Crown Resorts Ltd., gave the Grammy Award-winning singer a 35-carat diamond ring to seal the romance. The couple, who had been dating less than a year, is yet to set a wedding date.
Sources have revealed that engagement hadn’t been made public.
Packer, 48, has a net worth of $3.7 billion, putting him fourth on Australia’s rich list, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. He’s the son of the late media and gaming mogul Kerry Packer.
Carey, 45, who has two children, and father-of-three Packer have both been married twice before. Carey’s hit songs include “We Belong Together” and “Hero”.
