Mariah Carey New Engagement With Billionaire "James Packer "
The 52-year-old Mr. James Cannon has admitted he is surprised the 46-year-old singer songwriter - who split from the 35 year old last year and is set to marry her new fiancée James Packer next year - moved on from her ex-husband so quickly, and believes if a man had acted the same way he would receive negative backlash and constant questioning whether he had been having an affair during the relationship.

Speaking about the couple's seven year marriage, he said: "If Nick would have moved on quickly like that, so soon after the marriage, everyone in the country would have been questioning things.
"A woman can come out of divorce immediately, people tell her to get someone else to get over it, but to a man that's not the advice I would have given to my son..
"I've been watching just like everyone else, someone (Mariah) is already dating before the divorce is even final. It's different for Mariah because she's a woman.
"If a man was ready to hook up with this billion-dollar lady - if Nick was ready to hook up with Oprah - then people would say: 'What's really going on before?'
However James believes Nick - who has four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with his former partner - has coped with the split well.
He explained: "He puts up a mask, he said: "I'm fine", but you've had a break up, marriage, in front of the world.

He then spilled what's holding up those divorce papers. "In the truth and honesty, attorneys are dealing with it, they're putting the deadlines on this and this.
They will be on major commissions, they want them to divvy out as much as they possibly can, they're the people who can benefit the most from eking it out," he says.
"If Nick hasn't signed no papers, it's because the attorneys haven't put them in front of him."
