Mariah Carey’s Beau James Packer Drops Pounds: Weight Loss from New Romance or Stress from Ex?

By Nilankur Dutta | 1 year ago

Billionaire industrialist James Packer, currently dating international pop-star Mariah Carey, has been spotted sporting a new slim physique recently. Could this be the result of a romantic snub from an ex? Read on to find out more.

47-year-old Packer, who arrived in Melbourne on Sunday for the first time since announcing his romance with Mariah Carey, stunned colleagues at a media event with his slim frame. But critics are not entirely sure if this is just the side effects of a new romance in Packer’s life. MailOnline suggested that this might have been triggered by Packer’s ex-wife Erica, who was spotted with British singer Seal boarding a yacht on the Mediterranean.


Packer has had a long documented struggle with weight loss and elected to undergo gastric bypass surgery in 2011, losing 40 kg. Since then he has been on a weight loss regime and currently boasts of being 92 kg. He was spotted at the Bondi suburb on Saturday, where he is vacationing with Mariah Carey. The two have a blossoming romance and are reportedly renting a $10,000 a day beachfront property in Malibu.

Packer was also seen at an exclusive fundraising dinner at Sydney on Saturday, the Daily Telegraph reported. He arrived here with his arm linked with Jodhi Meares, ex wife and former model. Packer and Meares have been separated for thirteen years but share a friendly relationship, the latter even posing for a photograph with Packer’s new flame, Carey. The tycoon was spotted smoking a cigarette sneakily, but he was also seen extinguishing it generously upon meeting model Bambi Northwood-Blyth, 22. The dinner was in aid of Adopt Change, to raise money for open and ethical adoption reform in Australia.
