This comes on the heels of news that Carey has been tapped to replace Kate Upton as the face of the wildly popular game, Game of War.
Insiders tells the news site Packer has been pursuing Mariah ever since her marriage to rapper and entertainer Nick Cannon fell apart last year.

Packer’s ex-girlfriends include Tania Bryer, Joan Severance and Deni Hines. He was married to swimsuit model Jodhi Meares and model and singer Erica Baxter, with whom he shares three children. The couple separated in 2013.
