Congratulations are in order for Mariah Carey, who’s engaged to her Australian billionaire boyfriend, casino mogul James Packer, whom she met in 2014.
Her representative in New York, Chris Chambers, confirmed the news.
Packer, 48, is the son of the late Aussie media mogul Kerry Packer and the co-chairman of Melco Crown Entertainment, which develops, owns and operates casinos in Asia. Packer is listed as Australia’s fourth-richest man, worth $3.8 billion, according to Forbes magazine.
The Daily Mail published paparazzi pictures of what Vogue reported is a whopping 35-carat diamond-and-platinum ring on her finger from Packer — bigger than even the 33-carat Krupp Diamond colossus that Elizabeth Taylor got from Richard Burton in 1968.
