"She's really into Bryan. He's with her 24/7," the source revealed. "He's a nice guy."

Though Tanka and Carey seemingly got together right after her split from billionaire James Packer, the source says the two "weren't together when she broke up with James." They are now, however, in a "proper relationship."

Spending the holiday together has also brought the couple closer. ET's source reveals that Tanaka gifted Carey with jewelry for Christmas, while she often lavishes him with gifts.

"She's into him now," the source added.
