Mariah Carey has revealed she instantly hit it off with her billionaire boyfriend James Packer when they met last year.
"We first met in Aspen," Carey told The Steve Harvey Show.
"We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit if off," she said.
The couple went public with their romance in June.
During the interview Carey wore a diamond necklace, a gift from Packer.
"Oh this old thing?" joked Carey.
"This is a Van Cleef piece that my new beau got for me recently," she said.
She first wore the statement piece at the opening of Packer's Studio City Macau casino in October.
Carey reportedly moved in to Packer's mansion in Beverly Hills earlier this month.
But despite dating the gaming tycoon, whose casinos boast luxury hotel rooms, Carey chose to stay in Airbnb accommodation during a recent trip to Malibu, California.
She tweeted a selfie from the bedroom, captioned "Enjoying Malibu in my @airbnb."
