James Packer and Mariah Carey dated some time ago. The two famous stars were actually engaged and were planning their wedding when they announced their split. Despite the numerous rumors that have been in the media about the reason why the two ended their romance, James Packer decided to remain silent and revealed nothing regarding what happened between him and Mariah.
Well, now, James changed his decision and opened up about his relationship with the pop diva. James talked about Mariah during an interview with Weekend Australia. The two separated in 2016 and James actually considers that dating Mariah was a “mistake.”
The star claimed that Mariah was great, but he wasn’t at the best time of his life. “I was at a low point in my personal life,” James explained. The casino mogul revealed that he was very stressed out and was dealing with some personal matters when he met Mariah for the first time. “She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me,” he said.
The billionaire did not reveal the reason why their relationship ended, but it seems that they were not right for each other. The two dated for nine months and were already planning to get married. Some rumors claimed that the two got into a serious argument, while others said that James was jealous of Mariah. None of the rumors about the breakup have been confirmed.
Some sources claimed at that time that James was the one who ended the relationship and Mariah had no idea that he was planning on leaving her. Regardless of what happened, it seems that James does have a regret, but not related to Mariah.
During his recent interview, James claimed that he regretted that his marriage to Erica Packer ended. “It is my biggest regret that I let my marriage to Erica fail. It is what it is, and she is doing an incredible job with the kids and we are in a great place,” he said. He and Erica have three children together.
