AUSTRALIAN BILLIONAIRE JAMES PACKER has broken his silence on his recent unconfirmed split from pop star Mariah Carey, saying what many armchair commentators have been saying since day dot.
“Nah, but yeah, mate. Mad as a cut snake, if you can believe that,” explained the 49-year-old. “A few mates pulled me aside and pointed a few things out. Then the jigsaw pieces came together to reveal the bigger picture.”
Reports surfaced earlier this week that suggested that the pair had decided to go their own separate ways, as lovers often do when they’re jack of each other.
However, these latest developments suggest that J-Pac, as he’s called on the polo circuit, pulled the pin on the 10-month relationship because he discovered that Carey is indeed madder than a cut snake.
“I don’t think it’s really a surprise to anybody. My old man always told me to steer clear of actresses, singers and dancers. Here I’ve got all three in a tidy little package, it was only a matter of time until things reached critical mass,” he explained.
“But yeah, I think it might be time I find my Wendi Deng. Smart, business-minded and smoking. Somebody I can watch the cricket. Somebody who’ll let me smoke in my own house. That’s the go.”
The Advocate reached out to Carey’s management for comment, but have yet to receive a reply.
More to come.
