Earlier this year they made their debut during a romantic escape in the Mediterranean. And months later Mariah Carey, 45, and James Packer, 48, are still going strong!
Speaking on talk show Steve Harvey this week, the diva revealed how they first met.
As it turns out, their relationship began the way that many regular people’s do - they hit it off at a party.
“We first met in Aspen [Colorado]. We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing, and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit it off,” the mother-of-two said.
"Oh, this old thing?" the diva replied with a coy smile as Steve Harvey asked her about the recent gift from beau James.
But all eyes were on the singer's enormous silver chained necklace.
When asked about the OTT bling, the Heartbreaker hitmaker played coy.
“Oh, this old thing?” she said with a sly grin. “This is a Van Cleef [& Arpels] piece that my new beau got for me recently.”
She described the gift as a “very, very big surprise” that was “really nice” of James.
Mariah was previously married to actor Nick Cannon, with whom she shares 4-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan Carey, while James was married to Erica Packer.
The surprising couple looked blissfully happy as they strolled the streets during their romantic escape back in June.
