Mariah Carey Opens Up About Boyfriend James Packer: 'He's Just A Spectacular Guy'

Mariah Carey and James Packer may "Belong Together"!

In a new interview with Access Hollywood's Liz Hernandez, the superstar opened up about finding love with the Aussie billionaire.

"He's a great person," Mariah said of James, to whom she was first linked over the summer. 

While Mariah added that she normally doesn't "like to talk about him too much" because he's "a private person," she continued to sing James' praises.

"He's just an incredible guy. He really is a good person, and that's hard to find," she told Access. 

The five-time Grammy winner doesn't think she's alone in her opinion.

"I think anybody that's a friend of his would say the same thing, if not more, so I can't say enough nice things about him," Mariah said. "He's just a spectacular guy."

The feeling is apparently mutual. Mariah arrived to the interview with a stunning diamond necklace around her neck, and confirmed it was a gift from her new beau.

"It was a surprise," she said of the sparkler, adding that it wasn't the first time James has demonstrated a taste for dazzling jewelry.

"He's given me one before, so this was like surprise No. 2," she chuckled.

Mariah and James made their red carpet debut as a couple in September, hitting the Tribeca Film Institute's gala for "The Intern." 

The 48-year-old businessman and philanthropist may not be the only one sharing Mariah's spotlight.

The busy mom to twins Moroccan and Monroe touched upon how her kids are slowly becoming aware of her celebrity status.

"My son has started saying, 'You're Mariah Carey,'" she said, using a star-struck baby voice to mimic her 4-year-old.

"It's like, 'Oh my gosh, I can't handle it,'" she added. "I don't even know who taught him that. It definitely wasn't me!"
