Mariah Carey is back in the dating game – with a billionaire businessman!

Over the weekend, the singer was photographed holding hands with James Packer, an Australian media mogul, in Capri, an island off the southern coast of Italy, and a source close to Carey tells PEOPLE the duo are “enjoying spending time with each other.”

On vacation with their kids – including Carey’s 4-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan (her kids with ex Nick Cannon) and Packer’s three young children with ex Erica Baxter – the pop star and her new beau were spotted relaxing on a yacht and indulging in Italian fare.

Showing off her curves in a fitted dress, Carey dug into a pizza and shared a zucchini and clam fettuccine with Packer, 47, at Aurora restaurant. “They sat down and enjoyed their meal like any other romantic couple,” says an onlooker.

According to a Packer source, the “brand new” relationship has “been bubbling for a couple of months.”
