He hasn’t been able to keep his hands off her since she boarded his mega yacht a few weeks ago.
But the one time Mariah Carey was probably wishing her beau James Packer would come to her aid and scoop her up in his arms, is the one time he sat back while she took a tumble.
The 47-year-old billionaire was busy soaking up the rays on a small boat off his Arctic P vessel in Formentera, Spain on Wednesday, when the pop diva tripped down the stairs in a pair of killer heels.
Although most partners would rush to their girlfriend’s aid in her moment of need, James took a very different approach, and was seen stretching out his arms and watching on as the awkward moment unfolded.
However, the 45-year-old singer wasn’t left to fall flat on her face, as James’s trusty deckhand dived in to rescue her – just as her ankle gave way in her block heels and her skirt blew up with the wind.
Mariah did, however, manage to fall in style, dressed in a provocative Camilla swimsuit featuring a plunging neckline and risque cut out while on her way to lunch with James.
A pink sarong was tied loosely around her waist and an orange handbag looped over one arm as her long caramel curly locks gently caressed her upper torso.
The rest of the outing appeared to go without a hitch as the couple was whisked across the sea to dry and more solid land where their lavish lunch awaited.
The Hero hitmaker looked happier than ever as they rode the waves, feeling the warm summer breeze blow through her tresses and across her flawless face.
Packer was casually clad in black trousers and a white button-down shirt, along with white trainers.
Earlier on in the day, Mariah chilled out in superstar style while moored in the warm Mediterranean waters off the Balearic island of Ibiza.
She squeezed her incredible physique into a black-and-red striped wetsuit, which clung to her ample cleavage and phenomenal curves, as she took a quick dip in the crystal clear sea to cool off.
News of James and Mariah’s romance first surfaced two weeks ago when the couple were spotted ambling along the narrow streets of Capri, Italy, hand-in-hand, leaving passersby agog.
The Love Takes Time hitmaker accepted James’ invitation to sail around the Mediterranean and the mogul – Australia’s fourth richest man – has been seen fawning over the singer’s four-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, who have joined them on the trip.
Sources close to Carey have told TMZ the father-of-three has been ‘aggressively’ pursuing the singer and is ‘obsessed’ with her music after he met her at her concert in Las Vegas in April.
Well-connected producer Brett Ratner, known for directing the Rush Hour film series, The Family Man, Red Dragon, X-Men: The Last Stand and Prison Break, is said to have introduced the pair.
Meanwhile, the couple’s new romance comes just 10 months after Mariah announced her split from husband Nick Cannon, with whom she has Moroccan and Monroe, followings six years of marriage.
The curvaceous babe took her split from her Nick hard and, during a Christmas concert in New York last year, broke down in tears as she attempted to sing Hero to a packed out audience.
Nick has since reportedly signed a deal to write a tell-all book about their turbulent marriage after the pop diva rejected his repeated demands for a $30 million divorce settlement.
Prior to Nick, Mariah was married to Tommy Mottola from 1993 until 1998.
James has also had his fair share of relationships as after Jodhi the billionaire tied the knot with second wife Erica before calling it quits in 2013 following six years of marriage.
The couple share young children, Emmanuelle, two, Jackson, five, and Indigo, six.
He’s also been romantically linked, on a number of occasions, to Miranda Kerr.
