Mariah Carey kicks off 2016 with a very big announcement—and an even bigger rock on her finger. That's right, the superstar is engaged! Mariah and her Aussie billionaire boyfriend, James Packer, made it official in New York City when he proposed to her at a restaurant in front of all of her friends.
TMZ reports that James held a private dinner at Eleven Madison Park and got down on one knee to propose. Mariah and James have only been dating since June 2015, but when it’s real, it’s real.
This will be the third time down the aisle for the 46-year-old singer. She was married to music honcho Tommy Mottola in 1993 in a lavish, royal-style wedding. They divorced in 1998. Ten years later, she married Nick Cannon (who she split up with in 2015) and they have two children together. James, who TMZ cites as the “Australia’s fourth richest man,” is the son of a media mogul who inherited control of the family corporation. He has been married twice before and has three children of his own. Total modern family, right?
Congratulations to Mimi. We’re sure the wedding will be faaaabulous, daaaaaahling.
