Did Miranda Kerr Leave Orlando Bloom for This Richer Older Man?

It’s only been a lit­tle over a month since Miranda Kerr, 30, and Orlando Bloom, 36, revealed that they were end­ing their three-year mar­riage, and the actress has already been roman­ti­cally linked to some­one new. Kerr has been rumored to now be dat­ing 46-year-old casino mogul, James Packer, although their rela­tion­ship is said to be in the very early stages. Bil­lion­aire Packer ended his own six-year mar­riage less than three months before Kerr and Bloom did.

Woman’s Day mag­a­zine first reported the story about the new celebrity cou­ple, and although the rumor has been refuted by a dif­fer­ent source, the edi­tor at the mag­a­zine is “stand­ing behind the story 100 percent.”

Packer and his ex-wife have actu­ally been friends with Kerr and Bloom for years, and they even vaca­tioned together last year in Tahiti. It’s believed that Packer also helped Kerr launch her beauty line, KORA Organ­ics, a few years ago.

Nei­ther Packer nor Kerr’s reps have con­firmed or denied the dat­ing rumor, but if the news about this new celebrity cou­ple is true, it wouldn’t exactly be a step down for Kerr. While her ex-husband is esti­mated to be worth as much as $35.0 mil­lion, Packer has a for­tune of around $6.0 billion.

What do you think: Is three months after a mar­riage ends too soon to start dat­ing again?
