It would appear Australia’s resident billionaire James Packer has found himself a brand new squeeze, according to reports from The Australian

With ex Mariah Carey well and truly out of his life, new reports reveal that the business tycoon, 50, is dating a “Canadian business owner and model called Kylie”.

Apparently they’ve been getting hot and heavy for the past few months.

Mimi is out of the picture!

In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, James and “Kylie” are seen to be holidaying in Aspen.

Many would remember the ski town was a hot favourite for James and Mimi back in their heyday.

Clearly liking things a certain way, Kylie looks a lot like her man’s former partners Erica Packer, Jodhi Meares and Kate Fischer.

James married swimsuit model Jodhi Meares in 1999.

After six years and three children together, Erica and James Packer called time on their marriage in 2013.

James is in a better place now that he’s moved on from his previous relationship with the singer.

The Blast reported that Queen Mimi and her former Aussie billionaire beau reached a settlement a few months ago.

The outlet shared that Mariah is set to receive $5 – $10 million dollars ($6 million – $13 million AUD)… Including her 35-carat diamond engagement ring.

James was introduced to the iconic singer by now-disgraced film producer Brett Ratner back in July 2014.

Their whirlwind romance resulted in James getting on bended knee, proposing in January 2016.

For a hot minute, they were happy.

Mimi joked about her whopping ring, “It’s so heavy I can’t lift my arm up!”

Speaking with The Weekend Australian, the casino mogul broke his silence on just what went wrong.

And, according to the billionaire, lavish spending, the Church of Scientology and reality tv ventures — just a few of the reasons why the couple are rumoured to have called it quits — had nothing to do with it.

James, 50, said that he was in billions of dollars worth of debt when he met the hitmaker after borrowing big in the hopes of providing his sister Gretel with some of the money left in their father Kerry Packer’s estate. He was also losing money on a separate Hollywood venture.

“But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”

“I was at a low point in my personal life,” he said.

“Documenting the negotiations with my sister was taking longer than expected. Brett Ratner put Mariah and me together. She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. She is very bright.”

He added: “But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”
