Mariah Carey is spilling new details about her relationship with Australian billionaire James Packer. “We first met in Aspen,” the popular musician told Steve Harvey.“We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit it off.” She added.
Host Steve Harvey muses that Packer is “a lucky guy,” while Carey sweetly responds: “I’m lucky too.” Indeed! Carey wears a stunning necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels — a gift from her beau — during the interview.
“Oh, this old thing?” she teases. “[It was] a very, very big surprise, very nice.”
Carey and Packer made their red carpet debut together at The Intern premiere in September. “James was leading Mariah through the theatre room and had his hand on her back. Mariah looked very proud to be there with James,” an eyewitness told ET at the time. “He seemed a little more under the radar than she is but looked at her very adoringly and happy.”
The following month, Carey opened up to ET about the outing.
“I don’t think either one of us thought, ‘Here we are, making a debut,’ he’s not that guy,” Carey said on the set of her Hallmark Channel holiday movie, A Christmas Melody. “It was a lot for him. … I just automatically pose. I can’t help it!”
