Mariah Carey’s billionaire ex James Packer has broken his silence on their doomed romance.

The Hero superstar, 47, and Australian businessman, 50, split last year just nine months after he popped the question.

While it was widely reported at the time that the break up was down to the diva, it was also claimed that he called it a day because of her “extravagant spending” and also because of rows over her reality show, Mariah’s World.

But, a year later, father-of-three Packer has finally shared his side of the story.

“I was at a low point in my personal life,” the 50-year-old recently told The Australian . “She was kind, exciting and fun.

“Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”

The pair were first introduced by mutual friend Brett Ratner at the premiere of Hercules in 2014.

They then went public with their relationship in June 2015 and made their red carpet debut at a New York premiere that September.

In January 2016, the billionaire got down on one knee – proposing with a jaw-dropping 35-carat diamond engagement ring, which was rumoured to be worth £8million.

Meanwhile, in the same interview, he also spoke fondly of his marriage to ex-wife Erica Baxter.

“It is my biggest regret that I let my marriage to Erica fail,” he shared. “It is what it is and she is doing an incredible job with the kids and we are in a great place.”
