Watch: Why Mariah Carey May Want To Think Twice Before Marrying James Packer
Mariah Carey may be enthusiastic about her relationship now, but what will happen when she finds out about fiancé James Packer’s disturbing past? Click through to find out what she doesn’t know about the billionaire!
A source tells OK! exclusively, “All Mariah has seen so far is sweetness and light. But there’s another side to James.”
The world saw his angry side back in 2014, when he had a brawl with friend David Gyngell, which was caught by the paparazzi. Although Gyngell admitted to instigating the fight, Packer was still fined by the UK police for “offensive behavior.” “Hopefully she’s prepared to put up with his tirades,” added the source. And that’s not all he has which should be a red flag.
Years before dating Mariah, it seems the 48-year-old was interested in the controversial cult-like Church of Scientology. In one instance, he was even videotaped applauding at one of the church events after meeting Tom Cruise!
Like father like son? James’ father does not have the best reputation, which may be another warning sign. His father, Kerry, who died in 2005, was investigated for tax evasion, money laundering and even drug trafficking prior to his death. However, the elder Packer was never prosecuted.
Added the insider, “she’s on cloud nine, but she’s a sucker for love, and everyone’s worried she’s going to get hurt.”
