Casino magnate James Packer’s new woman is beautiful New York socialite Kylie Lim, friends of the billionaire
The pair have been inseparable this past week as they holiday in Aspen, but James has ‘no plans’ to
bring his new woman back to Sydney.
The casino magnate told The Sydney Morning Herald’s Private Sydne y that he won’t be returning to his
hometown until Crown Sydney is completed in 2020.
James told the publication he had ‘no plans’ to bring his new love interest Kylie to Australia. ‘I
don’t intend to come to Sydney until a week before Crown Sydney opens in three years,’ he said.
‘I am not going to blow away Sydney forever but have no desire to be in Sydney before Crown Sydney is
ready for debut. I will come back to Sydney to live but I will do it on my terms.’
Friends of the billionaire told Fairfax Media that James’ new woman was ’30-something’ New York socialite
Kylie Lim. The beauty is a regular on the social circuit, with photos posted to Facebook showing Kylie
holidaying in Bora Bora and Ibiza, hanging out with friends in Los Angeles and skiing in Canada.
According to the Australian, Kylie and James have been seeing each other for ‘several months’. The
casino magnate and brunette beauty have been spotted together ‘all over’ Aspen on countless occasions
this past week, the publication also claimed.
The glamorous ski town is the same location where James enjoyed romantic getaways with ex-fiancee Mariah
Carey. Their engagement ended in October 2016 after 18 months together, with James describing their
romance as a ‘mistake’.
Since their split, the Casino tycoon has been spending most of his time at his polo ranch in Argentina.
‘I was at a low point in my personal life [when I met Mariah] Documenting the negotiations with my sister
was taking longer than expected,’ he told the Australian in August.
‘She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. She is very bright. But it was a mistake
for her and a mistake for me.’
Prior to his romance with Mariah, James was married to model Erica Packer for six years, the pair splitting
in 2013. The former couple share three children together nine-year-old Indigo, seven-year-old Jackson
and five-year-old Emmanuelle.
James was also previously married to Jodhi Meares and engaged to 90s pin-up girl Kate Fischer, now known
as Tziporah Malkah.
