Mariah Carey dedicated her song “Hero” to boyfriend James Packer during her “#1 to Infinity” Las Vegas show at Caesars Palace on Wednesday. Before the singer launched into the romantic ballad, she told the crowd, “I got a new heart tonight. James is in the house. Thank you for my heart. I dedicate this next song to you.” Watch the video below.

Carey and Packer, who spent the past two weeks apart because the billionaire businessman was traveling for the work, reunited earlier this week in Las Vegas, where they were spotted dining at Andiron Steak and Sea. He also sent 1,000 roses to Carey’s home.

As Gossip Cop reported, Carey and Packer were first romantically linked in June after they were photographed holding hands during a vacation in Capri, an island off the coast of Italy. The couple, along with her two kids with Nick Cannon, then spent time on his yacht as it cruised through the Mediterranean, docking in the South of France. They later jetted off to Israel for a few days.

Gossip Cop recently busted a report that falsely alleged Cannon was “pissed” his twins were spending time with Packer. As Gossip Cop has noted, Carey and Cannon, who split after six years of marriage, have remained friends. We’re told Cannon is supportive of Carey’s romance with Packer, though we’re not sure how he feels about the businessman being her “hero.”
