Their new romance has shocked many around the world, but Mariah Carey and James Packer’s union appears to have the seal of approval of the billionaire’s ex-wife, Jodhi Meares.
The former bikini model posted what could only be described as an awkward snap of all three posing together on board Packer’s yacht the Arctic P in Italy on Sunday.
Superstar singer Mariah stands in the middle wearing a glittering blue bikini top underneath a black dress, giving an awkward smile as she wraps an arm around her new love and his ex-wife. Fashion designer Jodhi looks equally as uncomfortably, offering a serious look into the camera lens.
But Packer looks pleased to have his old and new flames together, grinning widely for the shot.
She simply captioned the snap ‘Amore’ along with three love hearts.
James and Jodhi wed in a lavish ceremony in Sydney in 1999, where Elton John performed for their 750 guests. The fashion designer called it quits just three years later with the pair separating in 2002 and divorcing shortly after.
Following his split from Jodhi, 47-year-old Packer went on to marry Australian model and singer Erica Baxter, but after six years of marriage they filed for divorce in September 2013. The businessman shares three children with Erica; Indigo, six, Jackson, Five and Emmanuelle, two.
And now he has found love with Carey, who he met through his business partner, Hollywood director Brett Ratner, and was ‘aggressively pursuing her for months’. The Dream Lover singer, 45, has twins Moroccan and Monroe, four, which she shares with now ex-partner Nick Cannon.
