James Packer pays ex Mariah Carey 'millions'

Saturday, December 02, 2017

JAMES Packer has reportedly forked out millions of dollars to former fiancee Mariah Carey, the couple recently reaching a financial settlement following their ugly public breakup.

The billionaire paid the music icon somewhere between $6 — $13 million, the deal being settled in the past few months, reports.

The figure includes the value of the engagement ring Packer gave Carey, which she gets to keep.

It was previously reported the We Belong Together singer wanted upwards of $50 million from her Australian ex, claiming she went through a costly move to Los Angeles to be with him.

She also wanted compensation from the casino mogul after he did "something really bad" to Carey's assistant on a yacht in Greece in October 2016, TMZ reported at the time.

Carey stepped out wearing her 35 carat diamond engagement ring just last month — even though they split up a year ago.

The Sun reported the singer flashed the rock, worth millions, as she attended a Chanel party with her backing dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka.

The singer dated Packer for 18 months before they split up in October 2016.

It comes after Packer admitted he was "at a low point" in his life when he dated Carey.
