Mariah Carey and new billionaire boyfriend James Packer made their first red carpet appearance as a couple at The Intern premiere in New York City on Monday night.

The pair – who have been dating since June – walked the carpet with his hand on the small of her back.

The singer dressed conservatively for her date night opting out of her usual show-stopping ensembles for a maroon-colored dress and leather jacket.

Carey was first linked to the Australian media mogul while vacationing together in Italy.

Since then the pair have traveled to Sardinia, Ibiza and Israel with her 4-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, as well as his three children from a previous marriage.

“It’s fun. I’m not gonna lie,” Carey told Entertainment Tonight earlier this month about her new relationship with Packer.

Ex-husband Nick Cannon filed for divorce from Carey in 2014, while Packer split from wife Erica Baxter – who’s now dating singer Seal – in 2013.
