Singer Mariah Carey is still rubbing her $10 million engagement ring in ex James Packer's face by wearing the big sparkler yet again in New York City.

The 47-year-old appeared to be in high-spirits while keeping it casual wearing an animal-print jacket and matching pants, however the only thing standing out from the crowd was her giant 35-carat rock that she showed off on her right hand.

Mariah has been seen wearing the ring on numerous occasions recently after coming to a financial settlement with her ex-Aussie billionaire James Packer last week.

The business mogul reportedly paid millions of dollars to singer Mariah Carey with the couple reaching a financial agreement, after their very public split in October last year.

He's said to have forked out somewhere in between $6 million-$13 million (US$5-10 million),and on top of that she got to keep her engagement ring valued at US$10 million, according to The Blast.


The settlement comes after the 50-year-old business mogul told Weekend Australia magazine in October this year that the relationship with Mariah was a "mistake," and that he was at a "low point" in his life when the two got together.

"I was at a low point in my personal life," he told the outlet. "She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.”
