Mariah Carey isn’t the only one still married. Her fiancé James Packer is, too.

As Gossip Cop reported, Packer proposed to Carey in New York City on Thursday, during a private dinner for friends and family. The engagement comes after a year of dating. Gossip Cop noted at the time, however, that any wedding would have to wait, as Carey is still legally wed to Nick Cannon.

Now as it turns out, Packer is also still betrothed. The Australian billionaire and second wife Erica announced their separation in 2013. And while it’s been reported their divorce was a done deal by the end of that year, apparently that’s not yet officially the case due to Australian laws allegedly slowing the process down.

As for Carey, Cannon filed for divorce in December of 2014, and the two have been negotiating a settlement ever since. The estranged spouses, however, are on good terms and co-parenting their twins, which bodes well for them now coming to an amicable agreement sooner than later. As Gossip Cop noted earlier, Cannon also took to Instagram on Saturday to offer his ex congratulations on her engagement.

Cannon has been linked to several women since his separation from Carey, though none have turned out to be actual romances. Erica Packer, who has three kids with her estranged husband, was tied to Orlando Bloom in 2014, and is currently in a relationship with Seal, who is the ex-husband of Heidi Klum. Oh, what a tangled web celebrities weave!
