Mariah Carey may be off the market, again.
The 45-year-old songstress was spotted in Capri, Italy, holding hands with Australian billionaire, James Packer.
The two, have reportedly been staying on Packer’s yacht in Cannes and St. Tropez. Packer, who happens to be worth $4.7 billion and the fourth wealthiest person in Australia, has been pursuing Mimi for the last few months.
Multiple reports have emerged the new couple. However, this is the first public outing for Mariah and James.
Mariah and her ex-husband Nick Cannon filed for divorce 7 months ago.
Well, go head Mariah! Live your life and have some fun!

You’ve probably noticed #RedNoseDay trending on Twitter today. But exactly is Red Nose Day? It is originally a British tradition, first launched 30 years ago, that helps to fight child poverty. The United Kingdom has raised more than $1 billion from the telecast, which, according to British Council, takes place every two years in the Spring.
“Money raised during the Red Nose Day campaign goes to the Red Nose Day Fund, which then distributes grants to charities that benefit children and young people,” the campaign’s main web site said. “All of the grant money distributed by the Red Nose Day Fund will be given to a variety of nonprofit organizations that transform children’s lives.”
Red Nose Day UK was an idea that came to Richard Curtis, a scriptwriter best known for his work on Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, in response to the severe famine in Ethiopia during the 80’s.
According to Curtis, “it will be funny and entertaining while giving viewers the opportunity to pitch in to help kids in the US and around the globe,” according to The Guardian.
Half of the donated money will be spent at home, in the U.S., while the other half will be spent on some of the poorest communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Now, the event is coming overseas to the United States. Airing on Thursday (tonight) on NBC at 8 pm ET, Red Nose Day will be a star-studded three-hour TV event. Expect to see Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Neil Patrick Harris, Jodie Foster, Julianne Moore, Coldplay, Kim Kardashian and more. The network is hoping the fundraising telecast will become a new franchise.
As part of the promotional build-up to tonight’s event, NBC.com is hosting a 24-hour “dance-a-thon”live stream hosted by Nick Cannon at the NBC Experience Store in 30 Rock that launched at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Time to dig out that old Rudolph costume! If you put on that big red nose, and post it on social media, the Gates Foundation will donate $25 for children living in poverty. And the Gates Foundation, a non-profit founded by Bill Gates and his wife Melinda, will donate $25 for every big red nose photo posted on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #RedNose25.
Up until now, Mariah Carey has been very quiet about her separation and pending divorce between she and her husband Nick Cannon. She’s dodged paparazzi questions, kept her comments out of the tabloids and didn’t have any visible tattoos removed.
Today, though, it looks like Mariah is ready to talk…or sing about the end of her union in a new song “Infinity.”
And while she’ll probably say publicly that it has nothing to do with the father of her children, anyone who knows better can see that this song is full of shade.
Check out some of the lyrics below.
Why You Mad?
Talkin’ bout you’re mad
Could It be that you just lost the best you’ve ever had?
Boy you actin’ so corny like fritos
Wouldn’t have none of that without me though
I was yours eternally
There’s an end to infinity
Why you trying to play like you’re so grown
Everything you own
Boy, you still owe
Listen to the full song, in this lyric video and let us know what you think about this song? Pass or play?
Nearly three months ago, Nick Cannon quietly filed for divorce from his estranged wife, Mariah Carey. Since his filing, there have been several reports that the split would be quick, clean and easy since Nick and Mimi aren’t fighting over assets. However, it appears that there’s a chance—perhaps small but a chance nonetheless—that something other than real estate and finances may be putting the divorce on pause.
During a recent interview with HipHollywood, the actor implied that he’s not against trying to reconcile with his R&B-singing wife. The revelation came during a discussion about friend and business associate Amber Rose, who has made it clear that she desires to reconcile with her estranged husband Wiz Khalifa.
“Love is a beautiful thing. Get out there and go get what you want,” Nick said of Amber and Wiz.
As for his own impending divorce and the possibility of making amends with his wife, Nick had this to say:
“I mean, like I said, ‘You never say never,’” he shared while grinning from ear to ear.
Interestingly, the “America’s Got Talent” host took to Instagram yesterday and gave Mimi a shout out for the release of her #1 to Infinity greatest hits album, which suggests that they’re in a really great place right now. The two also spent Easter together with their twins Moroccan and Monroe.
It’s unclear if they’re just playing nice for the sake of their children. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this reunion, but either way, I’m really happy that they’re getting along.
Nick Cannon Claims Mariah Sold Their Marital Home Without Including Him, Business Manager Calls Him “Desperate”
Things appear to be getting a little messy in the Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey divorce saga, at least according to Nick’s new lawsuit.
The actor is claiming that Mariah and their business manager Michael Kane cut him out of a recent deal to sell their marital home, TMZ reports. In the lawsuit, Nick explains that Mariah and Michael sold the Bel-Air mansion for $9 million. He’s accusing Michael of exclusively dealing with Mimi’s people on the sale and insists that he didn’t know anything about it until after the home was sold.
Although Nick is fine with the actual sale of the home, his issue was Michael’s alleged decision to keep him in the dark until the deal was closed. He’s also worried about how the money will be divided. As a result, he’s requesting that the $9 million obtained from the sale of the mansion be frozen until he can have the financials reviewed to determine exactly how much he’ll receive from the deal.
Michael is clearly frustrated with Nick’s request, which he referred to as “frivolous.” Oh yeah, he had one more thing to say about the suit:
“[It’s] clearly a desperate act from a sadly desperate man.”
As previously reported, Nick quietly filed for divorce from his estranged wife just before the holidays.

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s legal struggles just keep piling up. In addition to their impending divorce and Mimi being sued by a former employee, the estranged couple is also facing a lawsuit from their ex-nanny.
According to TMZ, Simonette DaCosta, who says that she worked as a full-time nanny for the Cannons, is alleging that she was terminated for showing their twins Moroccan and Monroe too much affection. In the suit, DaCosta explains that she cared for the children when they were infants by feeding, bathing and comforting them; however, Mimi became upset over how close she was with the children.
As time went on, the plaintiff alleges that Mariah began berating her for showing the children too much love. Prior to being fired, DaCosta says that she put in plenty of overtime, adding that she sometimes worked 100-hour weeks. As a result, she’s requesting both damages and back pay. Interestingly, Mariah’s former assistant, who is also suing her, makes similar complaints in her lawsuit. Ysler Oliver alleged in her 2014 lawsuit that she frequently worked 16-hour days, but never received a dime in overtime pay.
Neither Mariah nor Nick has publicly acknowledged the suit.

She knows exactly what she’s doing. Amber Rose is getting her 2015 started off with a bang after recently setting the internet on fire posting pics of her scantily clad post-baby body. She recently caused another uproar after posting two curvaceous bodies on her Instagram: matching Ferraris belonging to her and her NCredible manager, Nick Cannon.
The posts of course re-ignited rumors that the two are an item which Amber decided to quickly squash:
“Shout out to my Amazing Manager @nickcannon! I know the world wants us to be together sooo badly (Sarcasm) but it’s just not our relationship. Every time I post a pic of me and this Man yall start reaching…We are friends and business partners nothing more. We have beautiful children and ppl we still love very much no matter what. I don’t know how many times I need to say this but this will be my last time. WE ARE JUST FRIENDS!!!! OK [expletive]? I usually don’t even comment on dumb made up stories but ur gonna see a lot of us together cuz we’re getting this Shmoney….Cuz he’s my manager! Duh. So fall the [expletive] back and chill the [expletive] out- Muva [kissy emoji].”
You’ve got to love how Amber handles all this shade with such class. And she clearly doesn’t want Mariah to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee on her behind, making it abundantly clear that they both still love their exes.
It seems that this business collaboration seems to be working well for the both of them. In addition to clothing line, “Rose and Ono”, Rose also stars in the 2014 film School Dance directed by Cannon.
Yesterday, we reported Nick Cannon officially filed for divorce from Mariah Carey.
Now, new details surrounding their prenup are surfacing. According to TMZ, if either one of them disclose the details of their marriage, they will have to pay a hefty bill. If Mariah shares the details of their marriage, she will have to pay Nick $500,000! As for Nick, he will have to pay $200,000.
Why the big price difference? Well according to the mean streets of TMZ, Mariah came into the marriage worth more than $150 million (Can we borrow a Dollar MiMi?) and Nick came in with only $500,000.
The reports are also claiming Nick took out a $470K loan to pay off Mimi’s ring. It was not worth the $2.5 Million we thought.
The two have already figured out a property settlement.
Over the summer, many of us were shocked to hear whispers about the separation between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. But what started out as a rumor was soon proven to be factual when the actor had his infamous “Mariah” tattoo covered. After months of wondering whether or not the estranged couple would find a way to work through their differences, we’re sad to report that Nick Cannon has formally filed for divorce.
According to TMZ, the papers were filed on December 12. It’s unclear whether or not Mariah has responded to his filing yet, but according to some who claim to have knowledge of the split; the two have been hammering out the details of the divorce with their lawyers for quite some time now.
It’s also interesting to note that just a few weeks ago, Nick lashed out over reports that he’s in the process of recording an entire diss album dedicated to his ex-wife.
“I will never say anything negative about Mariah Carey,’ he tweeted. ‘We are forever a family rooted in love.”
And while Nick has been doing most of the talking, Mariah hasn’t publicly uttered a word about the split. We were hoping that they would be able to find a way to work things out, but hopefully this divorce will mean a fresh start for the both of them.
