Very few were aware of the liaison but the 46-year-old businessman recently told his mates that he was seeing the 30-year-old model, the Daily Telegraph reported.
According to a source, Kerr may come across as an Earth Mother but she loves the high life and Packer, who is dubbed as Australia''s richest bachelor, can provide the sort of lifestyle and security very few could give her.
The couple has more in common than they had with their former partners, citing their love of riding horses and family.
This high-profile match was made very recently during trips abroad and they had reportedly formed a friendship when their families holidayed together in Bora Bora in May 2012 and have known each other for years.
