Mariah Carey And James Packer Make Red Carpet Debut In NYC
Mariah Carey and her boyfriend, James Packer, are officially together, and they made their first red carpet appearance as a couple. Carey and Packer, an Australian billionaire, were seen at The Intern movie premiere in New York.
Mariah Carey and boyfriend James Packer are probably the richest couple in Hollywood, which means that Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris have to work a bit harder.
Monday night, countless celebrities stepped out for the premiere of Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway‘s new film, The Intern. It follows the story of a female CEO of a fashion based e-commerce company, who hires a senior citizen as an intern at the firm.
The premiere took place at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City. Singer and songwriter Mariah Carey and James Packer were among the famous faces on the red carpet.
The diva looked stunning in a burgundy mermaid knit gown by Azzedine Alaia, which she accessorized with a shiny leather jacket, diamond earrings and sunglasses that matched her attire. As for Mr. Parker, he looked rather elegant in an all-black suit, white shirt and burgundy tie to match his lady’s dress.
Carey, who divorced her former husband, Nick Cannon in April, started dating James Packer, an Australian businessman and media mogul worth about $6bn, over the summer. The 46-year-old mother of two and the fourth richest man in Australia were spotted on a luxury yacht touring the Mediterranean Sea. They made stops on the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Formentera to soak up some sun, enjoy great wine and shop. Packer, 48, a father of three, was often pictured with Carey and Cannon’s 4-year-old twins – Roc and Roe – as they played on the sand and enjoyed a boat ride.
However, the lovers were never spotted together in America, nor in Australia, and have not shared any pictures of themselves on social media. All of that changed this week as the “All in Your Mind” and “Babydoll” singer and Packer were photographed holding hands, sharing kisses and hugging. An eyewitness said:
“Before making an appearance on the carpet, the happy couple hugged and shared a kiss. Soon after, the two sat with Robert in the theater and enjoyed the movie.”
A source close to Packer revealed that he spent months chasing Carey and is very happy to be with her. The insider said:
“They get along amazingly and their communication is always fluid and easy. James is very into Mariah, though, and he wants to spoil her and her children every minute he can. He feels she only deserves the best.”
The source added:
“James has been speaking to his family and friends back in Australia a lot about Mariah. This is just the beginning of their relationship, and they are both excited about what possibly can be ahead for them in the future.”
Talking to News Corp Australia, Packer made it clear that Carey is the crème de la crème:
‘Mariah is just incredible, amazing she really is…She’s a genius’. Who else is there? There is Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Not Madonna…Those three can sing five octaves…’
