Update: Mariah Carey Says Billionaire Relationship ‘Going Well’

Mariah Carey was seen vacationing with Australian billionaire James Packer in Capri, Italy. Lodging on Packer’s expensive yacht, their romantic destinations include Cannes and St. Tropez.

Mariah is said to have met the Australian billionaire through her pal, Brett Ratner, who shares business interest with James in the RatPac Entertainment company.

James Packer is the fourth richest person in Australia, whose worth is $4.7 billion. Mariah’s last marital relationship was with Nick Cannon, from whom she had her twins Monroe and Moroccan.

But just seven months ago, after six years of marriage, Nick filed for divorce.

And Mariah’s personal ordeal grew worse when Nick signed with major publishing company Simon and Schuster for the production of a tell-all book about their marriage and alleged secrets involving drug use, eating disorder, and Mariah’s strong liking for some peculiar sexual acts.

Nick was demanding for $30 million from Mariah after the split, but the singer refused because it was not what they had agreed upon in a prenuptial contract. Mariah was willing to pay Nick with $10 million as a settlement, but Nick did not accept.

Instead, he entered into a deal with Simon and Schuster. Simon and Schuster have confirmed the matter.

“Nick says he is going to tell the world about Mariah’s drug use, her strange eating habits, psychosis, what she has said about other artists, her sexual proclivities and her parenting skills. It will really be hurtful,” a source close to Mariah revealed. “And Nick is also going to explain why he thinks he should have full custody of the twins. Mariah has admitted she never wanted children and Nick is going to tell the world why she felt that way.”

‘If Nick was not willing to spill all of their nasty and salacious secrets he would not have gotten a book deal,” she had further added. “So obviously, Simon and Schuster feel this is going to be a blockbuster and they signed.”
