Mariah Carey linked up with new billionaire boyfriend James Packer for their first-ever red carpet appearance as a couple.

The pair – who has been dating since June – walked together to the New York City premiere of “The Intern” at the Ziegfeld Theater on Monday night. He had his arm on the small of her back the entire time.

The 45-year-old singer, who currently has a residency in Las Vegas, sported a conservative maroon-colored dress with a leather jacket.

Carey was first linked to the 48-year-old Australian businessman when they were spotted vacationing together in Italy over the summer.

“It’s fun. I’m not going to lie,” the singer told Entertainment Tonight earlier this month.
