Mariah Carey Engagement to James Packer 86d by (Maybe Former) Scientology Celebrity Wrangler - 2016-10-31
In the end, Mariah Carey was not going to be a Scientologist. But her engagement to billionaire James Packer seems to have hinged on getting along with Packer's right hand man, Tommy Davis, whom he hired earlier this year.
Many people, including TMZ, think Davis, the son of actress Anne Archer, is out of Scientology. But that's inherently ridiculous. His mother and stepfather, Terry Jastrow, are embedded in the cult. His wife, Jessica Feshbach, comes from a family that's donated millions to the cause of L. Ron Hubbard.
A few years ago, Davis was demoted by Scientology's Napoleon, David Miscavige, and sent into the woods, so to speak. But this year, Davis re-emerged as Packer's lackey, indicating that Packer was still connected to the group of nuts depicted in "Going Clear." The conventional wisdom is that Miscavige sent Davis on a mission to make sure that Packer and his money wouldn't be lost to Scientology by marrying Carey.
