This pair certainly won’t be stuck for cash, that’s for sure.

Mariah Carey is reportedly dating Australian billionaire, James Packer. The new couple have been spotted holding hands while holidaying in Italy.

So, just who is James Packer… aside from being one of the wealthiest men down under?

Mr Packer is the son of the late media mogul Kerry Packer. The 47-year-old inherited the family company which he sold and now owns a string of hotels and casinos.

As the 4th wealthiest person in Australia, he is worth an estimated €4 billion. This makes Mariah’s €440 million look like pocket change!

The couple are currently vacationing in Capri in Italy. According to TMZ they are staying on the casino mogul’s yacht before heading on to Cannes and then St. Tropez.

We can only imagine what Nick Cannon must be feeling right about now!

This is the first person that Mariah has been romantically linked with since her divorce from Nick last year.

Mariah also made headlines two week's ago when her brother spoke out, saying that despite not having seen his sister in two years, he was extremely worried about her alcohol abuse issues. Although, reports have suggested that Mariah’s siblings are simply looking for attention from their 45-year-old sister.

It definitely looks like she’s managing just fine to us!  


They arrived in Rome three days ago for a mother-daughter jaunt – and Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe have already bumped into some very famous faces.

Dining at the well-known Il Bolognese near Pizza del Popolo in the centre of the city, they ran into none other than Valentino Garavani.

The 83-year-old designer, a native of Rome, looked dapper in a light tweed suit, blue shirt, and dark blue tie.

Meanwhile, the Oscar-winning actress wore a blue and white skirt, white top and white blazer. Her 15-year-old daughter, to whom she bears a striking resemblance, donned a white lace dress.

The duo, who are also joined by Reese’s own mother, Betty, have certainly been enjoying the sights and sounds of the Eternal City: both have been posting images to their respective Instagram accounts. Indeed, Ms Witherspoon's first post was of a delicious-looking pizza.

Reese, 39, seemed particularly taken with the churches on offer, singling out St Ignatius and St Peter’s as her favourites.

She, Ava, and Betty are staying at the swish, five-star Hotel Hassler near the Spanish Steps. There, the two-bed, 400sqm penthouse suite costs an eye-watering €15,000 a night.


She's married! Yes 30-year-old Georgia Salpa is officially off the market: she wed her fiance Joe Penna in the Italian costal town of Portofino yesterday afternoon. 

The couple, who have been together for three years, said their vows in front of 100 guests – most of which had flown in from Dublin and London over the preceding days. 

Earlier today, she took to Instagram to share the first snap of 'Mr and Mrs Penna' – who were both looking remarkably fresh-faced despite the night's festivities.

"Truly the most magical, romantic perfect weekend," the bride said in the accompanying caption. "We couldn't have wished for a more amazing wedding. 

"It was a fairytale, and in every way a dream come true!" she added. "Thank you so much to all our family and friends for making it so special for us. Incredible few days, so much love."

Significantly, however, they both kept their ring fingers on their left hands covered so as not to reveal their wedding bands.

As well as their immediate families, Michele McGrath, Louise Johnston, Emily Mackeogh, Karena Graham, and Maurice Flynn were all also in attendance.

One report suggested the bride opted to wear a full-length veil and that her figure-hugging, ivory-coloured gown, which she sourced in London, was embellished with subtle beading and crystals.

Sadly, however, only invitees know for sure as the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant has yet to release an image of her wedding day attire.

The couple booked two other spectacular venues in southern Europe before changing their minds and swapping to Portofino – a location known for its opulence and luxury. 

Guests were treated to a sunshine-drenched champagne and cocktail reception at a five-star venue overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, before sitting down for a top-class meal and expertly-matched wines.

The food was inspired by the local Lingurian region, with fresh pesto, focaccia, and fish all featuring. 

Georgia wore this creation back in 2012 for Republic Of Telly


Georgia and Joe were engaged in India in the autumn of 2013, where they were holidaying at the time.

The model later revealed that her beau had gone all out for the occasion – arranging a candle-lit dinner on the beach and fireworks to make sure it was an evening she never forgot. 

They were first seen canoodling three years ago in Marbella, with the Dubliner's publicist shortly afterwards confirming that she and Joe were indeed dating. The businessman already has one child from a previous relationship.

Earlier this year, Georgia was in Barcelona for a three-night hen party with her closest friends. In a series of snaps posted online, she was seen donning party attire complete with a novelty veil. 

She also spoke to The Herald in advance of her nuptials, explaining: "It's not going to be a big thing, it'll be quite low key. 

"We would just rather have it for ourselves and a have a nice day. It's going to be really chilled with just close friends and family."

The newlyweds are well-known for their love of travel, and regularly jet off to exclusive locations in the Middle East, Indian Ocean, south-east Asia, and the Caribbean.

It is not yet know where their honeymoon will take them, however, it is believed that they plan on staying in situ for a number of days as most of their guests are still in the locality.

Georgia and Joe enforced a strict 'no photos, no social media' rule for the ceremony and reception, and – incredibly – not one image has so far emerged.

The pair shunned lucrative magazine deals in order to keep their day totally private. The move was hardly surprising, given that Georgia has previously said in her Star newspaper column: "Personally I would never go for an exclusive picture deal.

"Your guests sometimes have to sign contracts and they’re not allowed to take pictures. I don’t think your wedding is your own."



Justin Bieber's representatives have dismissed reports that he is facing an arrest relating to a warrant issued in Argentina.

The singer is currently filming in Rome for Zoolander 2 where local police gathered outside his hotel yesterday, causing speculation of an arrest.

Justin and one of his bodyguards were wanted in Buenos Aires this month after failing to return for questioning after an incident on paparazzo, Diego Pesoa, in 2013. 

According to TMZ, Justin experienced a secondary search at customs when he arrived in Italy, after Argentinian authorities notified Interpol of the warrants. 

However, these reports are now thought not to be true and GossipCop.com claims it is all "rumours" and the police outside were there in relation to safety issues and crowd control. 

This may not be the end of Justin's problems though, as Italy and Argentina have an extradition treaty.

We just hope he gets to finish filming for Zoolander 2, we can't wait! 



If you ever need anyone to spill the beans on your big news just ask Lauren Goodger!

The TOWIE star sent a congratulatory tweet to her friend and former co-star Billi Mucklow who got engaged in Rome to footballer Andy Carroll over the weekend.

Last night, Lauren tweeted: “Congratulations @BilliMucklow and @AndyTCarroll just seen the ring on @giorgiemucklow FaceTime wow!! So happy for you both lots love.”

It was only an hour ago that Billi actually managaed to announce the news to her followers in her own way, with a lovely photo of herself and Andy in Rome with the caption: “Last Night The Love Of My Life Asked Me To Marry Him – I’m So Happy! @andytcarroll You Are My Everything And I Can’t Wait To Be Your Wife #MrsCarroll.”

Look at that ring!

We hope Billi got the chance to share her news with her loved ones before Lauren’s big reveal on Twitter!

Billi and Andy are rumoured to have been dating since February of this year, but were friends for a long time before this.

Congratulations to Billi and Andy on their engagement! 



Lauren Conrad is currently honeymooning in Italy following her dream wedding to William Tell two weeks ago.

The star shared a glimpse of her honeymoon with us last week when she showed off an Italian phrasebook, but it looks like she is getting into Italian food too –yum!

Lauren shared a photo of herself with a huge pizza and a glass of red wine, captioning the photo: “post-wedding diet.”

Not. Jealous. At. All. Okay, maybe a little.

Seems like the perfect diet to us, Lauren!

It looks as if she and her new husband are having an amazing honeymoon – wonder if they’ll stop off at George Clooney’s Venetian wedding? 



There’s not much that could take your attention away from your brand new husband on your big day, unless, of course Beyoncé and Jay Z walked in unannounced!

The star couple decided to take a look around a local church on their Italian break, but little did they know there was a wedding going on inside.

Of course, they posed for pictures with the bride, who looked like she couldn’t believe her eyes! Also, we love her dress! So pretty!




It looks like that George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are getting closer to their big day!

It’s been reported that George and Amal have obtained their marriage licence this afternoon.

The couple got their licence in London, where Amal is based. Chelsea Old Town Hall posted a notice outside their building, announcing Clooney and Alamuddin’s plans to marry.

Speculation has suggested that the actual wedding ceremony will take place in Italy.

When Clooney was questioned on his upcoming nuptials, George spoke fondly of his wife-to-be.

"I'm marrying up." 

While our hearts are breaking, we still can’t wait for the couple’s big day!




It seems Harry Styles has had a slap on the wrist by his bosses for taking a risky leap off a bridge in Italy!

Harry and the rest of the 1D boys are in Italy as part of the European leg of their Where We Are tour, and the naughty singer decided to cool off by jumping off a bridge semi-naked.

The boy’s management are said to have been furious with Harry when they saw the snaps, as they said he could have seriously hurt himself when he hit the water.

While the other boys jumped in too, only Harry showed off by jumping in from a bigger height.

Oh Harry…what would your mother say!


One Direction: This Is Us 3D - Photocall



Irish model, Sarah Morrisey, wed her footballer boyfriend Pat Jennings over the weekend. The couple tied the knot in the beautiful setting of Buggiano in Italy.

Pictures from her special day have been revealed, and it’s no surprise that the blonde bombshell looks absolutely stunning in her Grecian style dress with minimal make up.

She looks perfect!

If the latest rumours are to be believed, Kim and Kanye won’t be getting married in Paris this month, but will be tying the knot in Italy instead.

A source has come out and said that Kanye West’s and Kim Kardashian’s wedding ceremony will be taking place on May 24th in Florence.

“Kardashian and West’s guests will first attend a pre-wedding dinner in Paris and then the couple will fly their guests in private planes to Florence for the actual wedding ceremony.”

Apparently, grey and gold wedding invitations were sent out to guests last April. The invitations asked guests to wear cocktail attire for a dinner in Paris on May 23rd but of course, no location was given for the wedding ceremony the following day.

There could be some truth to this rumour though, as Florence is a favourite spot for both Kim and Kanye as they holidayed there together in 2012.

But other sources have said that no one really knows what’s happening on Kim and Kanye’s big day, as the couple have revealed very little to their guests.

“Kim and Kanye have told all guests different info, No one knows all of the details.”

One thing is for sure, Kimye loves to keep us guessing.
