The main role of seven owners of the Kerry Stokes network in arresting the marriage of James Packer with Mariah Carey (couple in the photo) has been revealed

The leading role of seven network owners, Kerry Stokes, in breaking James Packer's engagement with Mariah Carey has been revealed, prompting the pop star to accuse Mr. Stokes of kidnapping.

Mr. Stokes took over the private affairs of his friend in 2016, since Mr. Packer's life went out of control due to extreme debts related to his Crown Resorts business.

Mr. Packer admitted to being manic, paranoid and stressed after facing a $ 362 million tax bill, lending $ 500 million to conclude a portion of his family's fortune with his sister and the fall of Crown's stock.

Shortly thereafter, the billionaire received a call from another friend at his home in Aspen, telling him to trust Mr. Stokes, and subsequently form a wedge between the famous couple.

Mr. Stokes said Mr. Packer was "confused" before his impending wedding with Carey in March 2016.

Mr. Stokes said he was concerned about the couple's lifestyle and was forced to reject a request from Carey to spend $ 250,000 on her wedding dress.

Carey's other request to rent a plane from Las Vegas to Israel was also denied, which angered the star and her personal assistant Stella Bulochnikov.

"They accused me of separating the lovers," Stokes said in The Price of Fortune, Mr. Packer's biography, The Australian reported.

"They were threatening to go to the police for kidnapping James, there were some strong words."

Mr. Stokes said that he and Mr. Packer agreed that it would be better for the besieged Crown chief to spend time in Israel.

"Far from all the controversies, the pressures and the intensities … My concern was that (he and Mariah) were in bad places and that James needed some space," Stokes said.

& # 39; I postponed your wedding … James was upset not to see her. But I was not sure. He was obviously committed to her. I was obviously emotionally involved. The fact that it was postponed, I was happy to have the opportunity to get to a better place.

In June 2015, Mr. Packer and Mr. Stokes had been photographed with arms wrapped in deep discussion aboard the luxurious Arctic P yacht in the Mediterranean Sea.

Mr. Stokes arranged for Mr. Packer to travel to Israel to receive treatment for his mental illness.

Mr. Packer said he received "very strong" medications while in Israel, which meant he could barely function even months later.

When Mr. Packer returned from Israel, he still wanted to marry Carey, but the relationship "fell apart."

In retrospect, that was good for James … James' welfare was paramount. I needed attention at that stage, "Stokes said.
