One of the music industry’s biggest divas and her billionaire boyfriend are heading to the alter after announcing yesterday that they are engaged.
Mariah Carey is known for her flamboyant stage persona and detailed demands, but it seems one man may have been able to tick all the boxes for the songstress as she has announced she is engaged. The lucky groom-to-be is James Packer, an Australian billionaire who hired Mariah to sing at the opening of his casino in Macau in early 2015.
The pair “went public” with their romance soon after during a summer holiday to Italy and the announcement of an engagement will come as no surprise to Mariah’s legion of devoted fans.
Mariah Carey is one of the world’s best-selling musical artists who is renowned for her diva-like antics and powerful vocals. She has previously been married twice, the first being to her manager Tommy Mottola in 1993 which ended abruptly four years later.
Her highly-publicised second marriage to American actor and recording artist Nick Cannon took place in the Bahamas in 2008 and produced Mariah’s children- fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe. Their divorce was finalised in 2014.
James Packer is no stranger to the aisle as well, having also been married twice previously.
With Mariah’s famously outrageous style and taste for the finer things in life, this is one wedding we REALLY can’t wait to see.
