Now, a decade after leaving Sony Music Entertainment, Tommy Mottola tells his story in a new book, "Hitmaker: The Man and His Music." He apologizes for the fallout from his marriage to Mariah Carey.Like Carey, Packer has been married twice before and has been linked to a slew of Australian models in the past, including Miranda Kerr.But Mariah fans know that her high-profile relationships have come to also represent different stages in her career.That's not to say he didn't have stumbles: two high-profile splits (Mottola divorced first wife Lisa Clark, with whom he has two grown children, in 1992; married Carey a year later; then married Mexican actress-singer Thalia in 2000, which has yielded two kids); a nasty battle with Michael Jackson, who accused him of being "devilish"; and an unceremonious sacking after 15 years of service (during which Sony Music saw $65 billion in sales; Mottola pocketed a $20 million severance package and was reportedly offered a $100 million commitment to launch a new label).Now, Mottola, 63, looks back at how far he has come.Aside from Packer’s age, we also know Mimi’s new fiancé is a father of three, who also happens to be a billionaire.
According to , Packer is worth around $3.5 billion and owns a casino empire.
As for his own legacy, the Bronx-born, Connecticut-based college dropout simply credits "a great set of ears." But Mottola had brains, too.
Look no further than the "billion-dollar song," Celine Dion's monster "My Heart Will Go On," which he championed.
As we raise a glass to Carey’s third engagement, here, a look back at some of the diva’s most famous loves of the past.
Carey married Sony Music head Tommy Mottola when she was only 23 years old.
He is the co-owner of Casablanca Records in a joint venture with the Universal Music Group.
