Moving on Up: Mariah Carey Engaged to Billionaire James Packer

 By:  Anny Jules  

It’s been two years since Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon parted ways in their marriage and now, at the start of the new year, Mariah said “yes” to Australian billionaire James Packer. 


James reportedly popped the question in NYC on Thursday night and presented her with a 35-carat engagement ring. 


35 carats people! 



Sources say that Mariah’s ex Nick found out about her engagement just like everyone else—-via social media.  After discovering the news of his ex-wife’s new engagement, Nick took to Instagram to share a funny meme of himself lying in a hospital bed while Kevin Hart watched over him with a worried look. Above the photo was the caption “It’s just a ring Nick…”



Nick then went on to congratulate Mariah and James on their new union.

It is unclear when Mariah and James will tie the knot, but the first thing on the agenda is officially ending the marriages they are still involved in with their ex spouses. Sources claim that neither Mariah or James’ divorce is finalized. 

This will be the third marriage for both Mariah and James and we are sure this will be a lavish one. After all, James is work $3.5 billion! 

Congrats you two!
