    But it looks so stiff and posed for a "spontaneous" moment. They both have dead eyes. Who holds hands like that? I'd love to know what's really going on.

    Ohhhhhh lightbulb moment. All the Packer men die comparatively young. James is worth billions. Mariah looks good in black.

    Yes, the eyes are truly the window to the soul and their eyes are dead. Eyes are the first thing I look at in pics because it tells me if smiles are genuine or not but it's scientific fact that a smile itself can't be faked anyway. The face uses different muscles for real vs fake smiles. Her smile is too robotic. Anyone also notice that Mariah tends to look to the left whenever she's in a picture with him and he's too close lol.

    Also don't forget this one @A*O.



    This one cracks me up. It's fake as hell but James must be overdoing it because Mariah is looking like 'This sh*t is for the cameras only so stop smiling at me like that and make sure you hand stays at that distance. Matter of fact, let me pull mine back'

    Also, the Packer clan usually avoid the paps and publicity like the plague. James has even been known to go a bit biffo with them if he thinks they're intruding. For the last 3 months not only has he been cool with them following him and his new inamorata on their Mediterranean cruise, he's also posing for happy snaps backstage in Vegas. WTF?

    I am in the same camp that thinks this is PR. The pictures of her stumbling on the stairs and he did not move a muscle says a lot. By the way the kids are with her, saw a couple with them on another forum. I think she's using this as a way to get back at Nick who jumped from one girl to another.

    Maybe she is, but JP seems to be entirely complicit in the whole charade which is VERY out of character for him. He's never been a publicity whore, quite the opposite in fact, and is Mariah such a trophy that he's willing to behave in completely the opposite way?

    ^ In a recent interview to News Corps Australia Shrek had this to say:

    'Mariah is just incredible, amazing she really is...She’s a genius'.
    Gushing about his love interest, the businessman went on: 'Who else is there? There is Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Not Madonna...Those three can sing five octaves...'


    “She’s a genius and has had more no. 1 singles than any other artist. And she is not political, she is an entertainer. Everyone just loved her. They might not know she has not had an easy life but still went on to write more no. 1 hits than anyone else. I mean 18 number one hits, that is just so incredible.

    I mean, yes Mariah's fans know she has 18 #1's but for a lot of them she's more than 18 #1's. Her music has touched a lot of people personally. I'm sure a lot of them would first and foremost talk about that, not her 18 #1's. #1's are for stan wars. I know another article talked about how when they were in Sardinia on his ugly yacht a while ago, they played only her music the entire night. The fact that he couldn't say something deeper, that only her 18 #1's came to mind and playing only her music the entire night, tells me exactly how he sees her: successful trophy girlfriend to flaunt. Nothing more, nothing less. So I'd say in his mind she is such a trophy to act completely the opposite.

    I do think Mariah wants to be seen as the "victor" in their break up. Even before Nick moved onto dating someone else, Mariah was being papped heavily on multiple occasions (Mariah is never papped heavily unless she wants to be, especially not in NYC) trying to look unbothered about their breakup. This isn't a popular opinion but I have to say I don't think the man cheated on her. I also do think that he was the one who left or at least initiated the initial separation because ever since their break up became common knowledge, she's been blatantly doing the most, trying to look as though she's unbothered and moving on. That's not her style and the actions, in general, don't speak of someone who did the leaving. When you're the one who did the breaking up, you don't have to go out of your way to prove it or feel the need to.

    I still can't believe that picture of her stumbling and him not moving. I was so pissed and I'd be pissed if that were anyone. I'm a big believer in common decency and if this is your supposed GF, you could at least make a move to get up and try to catch her. I mean, come on. ETA: I know the kids are with her but I haven't seen any pictures of them with her and Shrek like last time. It rubs me the wrong way that she has them with her staying on his boat in the first place because I don't believe this relationship is serious but at least don't try to push them into your PR game.

    The whole "18 number 1s" thing makes sense if he's a superfan (which I doubt - there's a whole chunk of the population who don't care about music and have a CD collection of about 10, including Oasis and Alanis Morrisette (to show they're edgy), Norah Jones and Mariah Carey - I put JP in this camp). But if he is somehow a total starfucker when it comes to Moomoo, this is the perfect scenario for her because he has unlimited resources to make it all about her, all the time.

    I see this PR stunt as somehow being linked to Barangaroo. Maybe he is hoping to sign Mariah to headline at his new casino?

    Maybe so, but he only needed to give her a singing contract, not buy her a $500k rock and become joined at the hip.

    It's not truly possible to have a relationship where it's all about you all the time because 1) The one resource that no one has an unlimited amount of is time, 2) IDC who you are, the novelty of who you're dating will wear off eventually, and 3) Life isn't stagnant. So, you can have a superficial relationship where the person buys you whatever you want 24/7 and you can have one where you flaunt your relationship and act as though it's completely perfect so everyone can stare on in envy so long as both know not to expect anything more of one another (I really wouldn't call those much of a relationship actually) but one where it's always being about one person's thoughts, feelings, wants, desires, problems/issues, work? No. Relationships like the first two usually work out for some because they know not to expect more from one another and they never go looking for more. The latter are usually fraught with tension, resentment, and anger before the big breakup. So unless she's looking for one of those other two options, I don't see this working out long term.

    500k is nothing to him. The PR is everything. He has arrogantly put plans on display to the public for his $2billion dollar casino complex and is yet to get approval for said complex. He is currently fighting with the State Government, Sydney Council and Echo Entertainment who manage Star City. His plans are to take over prime Sydney Harbour waterfront land and build a massive tower and hotel/casino that many don't want.. He currently only has permission to build a much smaller hotel further back from the water. At Barangaroo.

    He needs the public on his side. Maybe he thinks dating Mariah will help?

    I'm casually amused by this duo. It's interesting only because Packer appears to be acting against type. It seems unlikely either participant is any kind of victim, so I'm comfortable kind of watching it play out with a bit of a smirk. It would be fun to figure out why, but it won't bug me if that never happens. Maybe they're just having a laugh. As far as how real it is, I don't know, is Mimi ever real? I'm not trying to be snarky, I just don't know much about her, but she always looks, um, unreal to me?

    ^^ If he thinks that then God help him because he's lost the plot. I'm not even Australian but I just don't get why the people would change their minds because he's "dating" Mariah. I think he wants to do "date" her for the PR but if it's PR to get the public on his side so he can build an unnecessary casino complex then wow. I'm trying to wrap my mind around it. If that were to happen then goodness people really are sheep.
