It’s been 20 years since Tziporah Malkah and James Packer called it quits, however, it seems that there could still be some friendly feelings there.

Tziporah, formerly known as Kate Fischer, was spotted outside the Bondi Beach mansion where she and the billionaire once lived, delivering an olive branch so–to–speak, in the way of a very small potted plant.

The 44–year–old, who had heard about Packer’s mental health issues, decided to extend the gesture and in an interview with New Idea, revealed the reason behind the gift.

“It was just one of my ridiculous impulsive things,” she said. “I tried to buy forget-me-nots but the shop didn’t have those. So I just bought a dark purple pansy for James.”

Tziporah then revealed how “nervous” she felt “at the door”, running away quickly after placing it down.

According to the former model, a stranger had approached her while she was buying plants for her own balcony and they mentioned James’ current struggles.

This prompted her to then do something nice for her ex-fiancé, whom she was engaged to when she was known as Kate Fischer.

And in case anyone was wondering, Tziporah is absolutely not trying to get back with the media mogul.

“I was just wanting him to know I was thinking of him and wishing him well after what he’s gone through lately.”
