[Blind Gossip] This guy has no talent at all. He’s just rich. That fat wallet of his has certainly attracted many beautiful models and actresses over the years.
However, his newest girlfriend is impressing him in ways the others never could.
He has had paparazzi following him for years but he is completely gobsmacked by how much more attention that he gets now that he’s dating [her]! He would have done this years ago if he had known the amount of publicity she would bring him!
So, is it love?
It’s hard to say. I don’t think they would be together if he wasn’t rich or if she wasn’t famous. For now, there is a lot of mutual using going on and they are both enjoying it. He feels like a big man for having landed the big fish, and she loves having someone wealthier than her who knows how to live the high life and treat her like she deserves the same.
Sounds to us like they belong together!

[Optional] Is it OK to date someone just because they are rich or famous?
Man: James Packer
Woman: Mariah Carey
James Packer landed the Big Fish (and so did Mariah Carey)!
Mariah Carey and James Packer just announced their engagement. From USA Today:
Congratulations are in order for Mariah Carey, who’s engaged to her Australian billionaire boyfriend, casino mogul James Packer, whom she met in 2014.
Her representative in New York confirmed the news.
Packer, 48, is the son of the late Aussie media mogul Kerry Packer and the co-chairman of Melco Crown Entertainment, which develops, owns and operates casinos in Asia. Packer is listed as Australia’s fourth-richest man, worth $3.8 billion, according to Forbes magazine.
There is a whopping 35-carat diamond-and-platinum ring on her finger from Packer — bigger than even the 33-carat Krupp Diamond colossus that Elizabeth Taylor got from Richard Burton in 1968. [BG Note: See photo below]
The design and construction took two weeks and an “army of craftsman” that included measurement specialists and an expert well versed in the handling of such a large stone, according to the ring’s designer, Carey’s friend and jeweler, Wilfredo Rosado, in an interview with Vogue.
“I took the standards super-high, and I wanted to create a ring that could not be measured up to,” Rosado said.
So far, Carey has not posted about her engagement on her social media.
But there is no doubt that Carey and Packer have been an item for more than a year, although they haven’t been seen in public that much.
Recent pictures show them together on red carpets at the opening of a casino resort in Macau in October, and at a film premiere in New York in September.
Carey, who’s a millionaire in her own right, also featured a picture of the duo together on her Twitter feed in early January, after she celebrated the New Year with him in Australia.
Carey and Packer met in Aspen and again in summer 2014 at the Hollywood premiere of a film. “We hit it off,” she said on The Steve Harvey Show in November 2015.
This would be the third marriage for each of them. Carey has 4-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, with second husband Nick Cannon.
Packer, a friend of Tom Cruise and former Scientologist, has three children with his second wife, model and singer Erica Baxter, two daughters and one son, all under age 8.
We’ll dispute one fact in the above article (“There is no doubt that Carey and Packer have been an item for more than a year”). The couple may have met in 2014, but we don’t think they started dating until mid-2015.
The stats roundup: Less than one year of dating, 35 carats, $3.8 billion for him, $500 million for her, three marriages each, five kids total. Wow.
“Belong together” was a significant clue, as Carey had a famous song We Belong Together.
Congratulations to Goaskalice for being first with the correct response!
