Mariah Carey’s ex fiance, James Packer, has reportedly checked himself into a psychiatric hospital.
According to reports, the 50-year-old billionaire is at McLean Hospital, an ultra-exclusive $35,000-a-week facility in Mexico. James Packer shocked the world with the announcement last week that he was stepping down from his gambling empire Crown Resorts due to;
“ Mental health issues”.
James Packer had openly discussed his struggles with depression following the collapse of his telco company in 2001 and his split from Carey.
Prior to his engagement to Mariah Carey, Packer was married to ex-wife Erica Baxter. The couple separated five years ago, with Mr Packer saying he wanted to enjoy the pleasures of single life. They have three children.
News that James Packer was finally seeking professional treatment came as it emerged he had repeatedly begged ex-wife Erica Baxter to take him back. But Ms Baxter, mother of nine-year-old Indigo, eight-year-old Jackson and five-year-old Emmanuelle, does not want to expose their children to Mr Packer’s “seismic” mood swings, according to The Daily Telegraph.
