Australian casino magnate James Packer and Grammy Award-winning singer Mariah Carey are engaged.
The couple, who have been dating for about six months, became engaged in Mariah’s hometown, New York City, last night. We’re not sure about what the ring looked like but E! News reports “Mariah’s new diamond bling comes in at around 35 carats.”
