It's been a little more than a month since Miranda Kerr amicably split from Orlando Bloom after three years of marriage, but is she already seeing someone new? Reports out of her native Australia say the former Victoria's Secret model, 30, is dating 46-year-old Aussie billionaire James Packer, who announced his own marital split in September.
The rumored couple supposedly began an under-the-radar romance "very recently," although they have known each other for several years. In May 2012, Kerr and Bloom enjoyed a getaway to Bora Bora with Packer and his wife, Erica, a former model from Miranda's hometown of Gunnedah in New South Wales.
"Miranda may come across as an Earth Mother, but she loves the high life," a source tells Woman's Day magazine in a cover story breathlessly titled, "Head Over Heels: The Billionaire, the Supermodel and Their Red-Hot Romance." "And James can provide the sort of lifestyle and security very few could give her."
Because nothing says a love connection for the ages quite like security and a fancy lifestyle.
The pair, who have already been nicknamed Pac-Kerr by the Australian media, are "perfect for each other," enthuses a Packer pal, highlighting their shared love of "riding horses and family," the latter of whom presumably aren't being saddled up.
Kerr and Bloom are parents to adorable son Flynn, who turns 3 in January.
The Packers have three children: Indigo, 5, Jackson, 3, and Emmanuelle, 15 months. The casino-owning businessman, who inherited a fortune from his late media mogul father, Kerry Packer, and counts Tom Cruise as a friend, is reportedly on the hook for a $100 million divorce settlement.
Kerr and Packer have yet to respond to the dating reports.
