News breaks from Australia that singer Mariah Carey and Billionaire James Packer are engaged.

A wedding is in the near future of singer Mariah Carey. Australian billionaire James Packer has proposed to Mariah Carey in New York. TMZ has paparazzi photos from the night Carey and Packer got engaged at a restaurant with friends of the couple present.

James Packer and Mariah Carey have been dating only since last summer. Mariah Carey has been married twice before. James Packer is also not a newbie to marriage and also has two behind him.

E! Online reports that the Carey's giant engagement ring is clocking in at about 35 carats. The couple has not set a wedding date yet according to reports. 

For James Packer the rule of spending one to three month's salary on an engagement ring doesn't work. The 48-year-old billionaire is the son of late media mogul Kerry Packer. James Packer has grown the family wealth to estimated $4.7 billion. Forbes ranked Packer the 4th richest person in Australia in 2015.

45-year-old  Mariah Carey was married to Nick Cannon from 2008 to 2015 and before that to Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1998. Carey has a residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at the Caesars Palace Hotel since January of 2015. Mariah Carey plans a world tour later in 2016.
