Mariah Carey announced her engagement on January 21 to mega-billionaire James Packer, and knowing Mariah’s over-the-top personality this wedding is looking to be bigger than some royal nuptials. According to RadarOnline.com, Mariah “wants it to be the most expensive wedding of all time,” in a celebration to rival that of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Packer proposed to her on her home turf of Long Island, New York.
Other sources suggest that Mariah wants a summer wedding, and that boyfriend James is picking up the entire tab. Considering he is worth approximately $4.7B this is probably a fair plan. Her engagement ring is stunning: a massive diamond approximately 35 carats in size worth a reputed $8M, from jeweler Wilfredo Rosado.
The pair have been dating since June 2015 and reportedly fell in love last summer when Mariah, 45, visited James, 48, on his super yacht, Arctic P., off the coast of France.
The couple spent Christmas vacation in Aspen and enjoyed time with Mariah’s four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, her children with former hubby Nick Cannon.
New rumors are now circulating that the pricey pair want to be married in Australia, where casino-owner Packer is from, or else in the south of France. to pay homage to where they met. (These are the kinds of problems to have!). Packer hails from a media mogul family and is reputed to be one of the richest men in the country.
There is little doubt that wherever the couple decides to wed, Mariah will hire the best wedding planners and expect top service and a spectacular event.
Even in her first wedding, to Sony exec Tommy Monroe, she spent a reported half million, which translates to abuot $800k in today’s dollars. We can only imagine the virtually unlimited budget she has for this wedding.
