After 8 months of dating, American singer Mariah Carey and Aussie billionaire James Packer are set to tie the knot.

James is said to have popped the question with a 35-carat diamond ring on Thursday night in Mariah’s hometown of New York. TMZ reports that James rounded up some of the diva’s closest friends for a private dinner to propose.


The pair first went public with their romance in June, and supposedly hit it off when they first met in Aspen in late 2014.


It will be the third marriage for both of them. Mariah was married to music mogul Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1997 and then to Nick Cannon from 2008 to 2014. She and Cannon have four-year-old twins together, Moroccan and Monroe.


James was previously married to model Jodhi Meares from 1999 to 2002 and model/singer Erica Baxter from 2007 to 2013. He and Baxter have three children together, Indigo, 7, Jackson, 5 and Emmanuelle, 3.





Mariah has been sharing lots of pictures of the two of them on social media during their loved up romance.

There is no date set yet for the wedding.
