People have expressed their sighs of bewilderment upon news of the breakup between famous celebrity couple, supermodel Miranda Kerr and Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom. A lot of people continue to hope for a reconciliation between the two but it seems like Kerr has moved on so quickly.

After only a month from splitting from Bloom, Kerr is rumoured to be dating Australian billionaire, James Packer.  Several sources told WHO magazine that the two have reportedly been seeing each other, . However, no romantic relationship between Kerr and Packer has been confirmed yet.  

Exactly, who is James Packer, you might ask? Well, here are some facts about him that might pique your interest.

Packer's previous girlfriends include British TV presenter Tania Bryer, American actress and former Playboy cover girl Joan Severance, and RnB singer Deni Hines. In 1997, Packer got engaged to model and actress Kate Fischer, which lasted for only two years. After his engagement with Fisher, it was called off in October 1999, Packer wed swimsuit model Jodhi Meares. His marriage with Meares also didn't last for so long. The last woman in Packer's life before Kerr came into the picture is model and singer Erica Baxter, to whom he was married for six years. It was in September 2013 that Packer and Baxter announced their separation. You can tell that Packer certainly has an eye for beautiful ladies.

Packer started his "bromance" with Tom Cruise in 2002. He supports Cruise's Scientology religion and in fact always attends the Church of Scientology in Australia. The Aussie billionaire even took courses to strengthen his faith on the said religion. When Cruise visited Australia, Packer met up with him and they got along really good ever since.

Packer teamed up with American filmmaker and producer Brett Ratner in 2012. Ratner is the man behind the movies "X-Men: The Last Stand," "Tower Heist," and "The Rush Hour" film series.
