James Packer partying with bikini-clad young woman on superyacht

Australian billionaire James Packer has been photographed on a cruise ship hanging out with a bikini-clad young woman.

On Thursday, Mr Packer was seen enjoying a $250 million superyacht in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Italy.

A wealthy Australian registrar was there with two unknown women and an unknown man.

American film director Brett Ratner, 53, was also present, who has directed Hollywood films including the X-Men and the Rush Hour franchise.

In one instance, Mr Packer 54, was photographed holding the hand of a blonde woman while also bending down to kiss her cheek.

At another point, one of the women is seen drinking and dancing on the boat.

Mr Packer was wearing sunglasses and a navy T-shirt and black shorts while his friend Mr Ratner was wearing a gray T-shirt.

The Aussie business has been seen spending a lot of time on its superyachts in recent months.

In July, it was revealed that Danish model Josefine Hanning Jensen had been on board the billionaire’s superyacht since at least July 6.

There’s no word yet on whether Packer and Jensen have a romantic relationship, or if he will join her when she returns to Sydney.

It is unclear whether the two women seen on the ship on Thursday were also models.

The son of media honcho chief Kerry Packer, James Packer has a net worth of US$1.5 billion (A$2.17 billion) according to Forbes.

Two months ago, Mr Packer revealed that he had been trying to lose weight after saying: Australian Weekend last month he was ready to embark on the “third act” of his life as he looked towards his return to Australia.

“I’m roughly 130kg now and want to get back to 100kg by the end of 2022,” Packer told the publication.

Talk to Sydney Morning Herald around the same time, Packer revealed that he lost 33kg after quitting alcohol, limiting his calorie intake and exercising daily.

Mr Packer told the paper his life is “pretty good now”, adding: “My mental health is the best it has ever been.”

He also revealed his mental health has also changed, after quitting the antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs he was taking.

With his $8.9 billion sale of his company’s stock to US private equity firm Blackstone completed on June 24, which left Packer with $3.36 billion in pocket, he is now ready to plan his return.

“I want to swim with my kids in Bondi when we are all together in Sydney next year and be 100kg,” she said from her home in Mexico.
