Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Mariah Carey and James Packer are about to get married but the singer revealed that the Australian businessman was actually a fan of her work even before they met and started a romantic relationship.

The 46-year-old former wife of Nick Cannon sat down for an interview with Complex magazine and she shared that after her spit with Cannon, she was not looking for love. However, her friend, filmmaker Brett Ratner , introduced her to Packer, whom she dubbed as “regular, normal person.” She noted that Packer told her he has been obsessed with her music and listens to different playlists of her songs whenever he travels.

Carey said that it has become an important element adding, "Actually, if he didn't like my music, then how would I be able to handle him being around when all I'm doing is creating? It's cool. I don't expect him to be at every little thing that I do, and vice versa. He's got a lot of stuff on his plate and so do I. There's a mutual understanding."

As for the pre-nuptial agreement before they got married, Carey noted that they do not like it to be a huge issue but the reality is it has to be since they have things that are specifically hers and he has “huge friggin’ conglomerate stuff.” She noted that she is not looking to take that away from him.

As for her marriage to Cannon, Carey revealed that she never thought that she would get divorced from the person she has babies with.

Carey has not revealed more about their wedding plans, when it will take place, and what people are to expect. She did say, however, in her past interviews that they are busy preparing but they are still busy with a lot of things regarding their respective careers.
