Pop star Mariah Carey, separated from singer-actor and "America's Got Talent" host Nick Cannon, reportedly is dating Australian billionaire James Packer. said Carey, 46, and gaming and resort titan Packer, 47, were seeing each other after the two were photographed strolling in Capri, Italy. The website ran photos Tuesday of Carey on Packer's yacht, accompanied by her and Cannon's 4-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe.

The Grammy-winning singer's spokesman, Chris Chambers, told Newsday, "Unfortunately we never comment on our clients' personal lives."

Carey, who was born in Huntington and raised in Greenlawn, was married to music mogul Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1998.

Packer, the son and grandson of Australian media barons, heads the gaming and resort conglomerate Crown Ltd. and owns the Hollywood production company RatPac Entertainment with filmmaker Brett Ratner. Forbes magazine estimates his wealth at $4.7 billion. In September 2013, he and his wife, former model Erica Baxter, announced they were separating after six years of marriage.
