There may be a way for Mariah Carey to get James Packer back!
As you surely know, the We Belong Together singer appeared to be happily engaged to the Australian billionaire until their very explosive breakup made headlines back in October. Whomp, whomp!
However, it appears this isn't the first time the businessman has been wrapped up in a messy pre-wedding split. In fact, James' former fiancée Kate Fischer just penned an open letter in New Idea for MiMi where she offered some unsolicited advice about Packer and how to gain back his affection.

Miz Fischer wrote:
"I'm sorry you've hit a rough patch with James. When I heard you two had parted ways, I had a real sense of deja vu. Sure, it was two decades ago that my heart was broken when James and I split, but I still remember every detail as if it were yesterday!"
Is anyone else LIVING for this? Anywho, Kate continued:
"My advice to you is, if you really want him back, play the game, let him make the key decisions and you may well live happily ever after
as Mariah Carey Packer."
Hmm, very inneresting.
As you may recall, Fischer and James called it quits on their relationship in 1998 after five years of dating. Packer's former flame went onto to pinpoint the business mogul's parents and entourage as the reason their romance crumbled. Apparently, James' mother Ros "isn't the easiest woman to impress." Not to mention, Mariah's ex's late father Terry was known for being "intimidating".

To make matters worse, Kate and James were never alone as the 49-year-old surrounded himself with butlers, chefs, and associates. Oh, and there was supposedly a pesky personal valet who never left his boss' side… "even in the bedroom". Eek!
On her failed relationship with James, the model concluded:
"In the end, for me, it all came to a head after I realized that as much as I loved James, I could never be happy being Mrs. Packer."
Fair, fair. And we're not entirely sure the pop star is eager to take back her ex! Although Mariah is certainly sending mixed signals as she is still wearing her engagement ring.
We'll definitely be curious to see if Mariah follows Kate's advice, but for now we're just hoping that the A-lister is taking care of herself amid this drama!
