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?
