Mariah Carey has now said arrivederci to Italy, but she's taken away memories that will last a long time after a romantic cruise around Capri with a summer love. On Tuesday, she shared her first Instagram picture of James Packer, her new billionaire boyfriend. The couple were joined by two friends, including James' business partner film-maker Brett Ratner, who introduced them.

In the picture the diva was looking typically Mariah fabulous in a plunged necked silver gown, massive sunnies and her hair styled in loose waves. Her post was popular with followers who gave it 32,000 likes.

No wonder they approve. The media mogul, who is said to be worth $4.6billion, has been spoiling his new girlfriend on his Arctic P yacht. Over the weekend, they were seen having a romantic dinner date at the Aurora restaurant on the idyllic island.

Although he looked a little shy in the picture she shared, the 47-year-old Aussie has been happy to shower her with affection, continually smiling, with arm often thrown around her in company.

Arrivederci Italia! 🚢⛵️💕

To finish the holiday on a high note James threw a party for Mariah, 45, at which only her music was played, reports TMZ.

He has apparently been pursuing her for months, arriving to see her in concert six weeks ago in Las Vegas. However, the romance only started when she accepted his invitation to join him on vacation. Knowing that she is devoted to Roc and Roe, her four-year-old twins by estranged husband Nick Cannon, James invited them along too.

The party also included his own children by second wife Erica Baxter, from whom he separated in 2013, making it very much a holiday to remember.
