Will the Third Time Be a Charm for Mariah?

The singer and billionaire James Packer make it official.

Published January 22, 2016

Mariah Carey and her boyfriend James Packer are engaged! The singer will make her third trip down the aisle with the billionaire entrepreneur after less than a year of courtship. That's fast for most people, but not for Mimi, who tied the knot with Nick Cannon after less than a month of dating.

Packer reportedly popped the question in New York City on Thursday evening.

The couple first met "a few years ago" at the premiere of Hercules, she told Steve Harvey last year, but began dating just last year after her split from the Real Husbands of Hollywood star. Carey and Packer made their official debut as a couple at the premiere of The Intern last fall and spent Christmas in Aspen with her kids Moroccan and Monroe, whose father is Cannon.

This will be the third marriage for Mimi, who was also previously married to music executive Tommy Mottola. Packer has three young children with his ex-wife Erica Baxter.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
