According to Times of Israel, Packer is under investigation by the Israeli police for his relationship with the country's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. The investigation alleges that Netanyahu accepted expensive gifts from wealthy businessmen, including Carey's ex.
"I don't really pay attention to politics, darling," Carey responded when asked about Packer and how the prime minister got free tickets to her show. "Oh, now they want to blame me?" Adding, "I don’t know about that, I concentrate on the singing and the show and all that kind of stuff."
Carey and Packer met in 2014. The businessman proposed to the singer in January of 2016 and they ended their engagement in October of last year. Since then, Carey has been spotted with her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka.
