James Packer was hopelessly in love with Mariah Carey, even giving her his name… just a month before an ill-fated yacht trip in Greece. Packer sent emails to Mariah as late as last month, referring to her as MCP – Mariah Carey Packer – TMZ has confirmed.

In another email a few weeks earlier, Packer wrote, “All my love, laughter, light, respect and appreciation and admiration … Thank you my fiancee and soulmate.”  And the subject line reads, “Will U marry me soon MCP pls -:))))).”

And, just a week before getting on the boat on September 14, Mariah gave James a Cartier wedding band as a birthday present. Mariah believes everything changed when Packer’s right hand guy, Tommy Davis, began questioning his spending and targetting the gifts Mariah got. She insists he was the central figure in ruining their relationship.
