Mariah Carey is very close to getting a proposal…according to sources close to her camp. Get the deets on the latest developments with James Packer inside and get an update on Laura Govan vs. Gilbert Arenas.
In the photo atop, Mariah Carey and her new billionaire boyfriend James Packer were spotted holding hands while out and about in Portofino, Italy yesterday. And yes, they’re getting very close….very quickly.
Sources close to the “Infinity” singer say she and James are SO SERIOUS about their romance that they’re flying to Israel for what’s being dubbed a “pre-engagement spiritual meeting” with a religious guru.
The guru is apparently a close pal of James and we’re told that this is a “step” James believes he must take before popping the question. Now get this…once the meeting takes place (today) they’re saying Mimi and James plan to move swiftly and “they will be married soon.”
Hope the ink is dry on MiMi an Nick’s divorce papers.
So….who is this spiritual guru with Mariah’s fate in his hands? We don’t know, but James is intentionally keeping the deets a secret for security reasons.
Oh well…..congrats on locking down a billionaire Mimi!
Before the flight to Israel, Mimi posted a new pic of Monroe. Cute!
In not-so-happy relationship news……………
Reality tv vixen Laura Govan and the father of her four children, ex-NBA baller Gilbert Arenas are still battling it out in court – and Laura’s losing. You’ll recall that Laura first took Gilbert to court for kicking her out of their home and taking back her fake $1 million engagement ring.
Then we learned that he DEMOLISHED her car with a cinder block (above) recently. Now, Laura claims he threatened her….but the judge doesn’t seem to care. We’ve learned that LG went to court this week to request a restraining order on Gilbert, claiming he told her “I want you dead or in jail or broke.”
While this may or may not have really happened – either way – the judge ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to warrant an emergency restraining order. After the hearing, TMZ claims Gilbert posted his Instagram, “Another victory in court … I’m not the one to keep score but ur 0-16.”
We didn’t see the caption (because he likely deleted it), but we hope those two will play nice for the sake of the children.
