Mariah Carey's pampered pooches

Mariah Carey's dogs only fly first class.

The singer - who recently got engaged to billionaire James Packer - flew her pampered pooches, Jack Russells named Cha Cha and Jill E. Bean, from Aspen to her new lavish rented home in Los Angeles this week.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: "Mariah's dogs only fly first. But the two pets hate each other, so [they] had to be placed in separate kennels for the journey and travel with two separate members of her staff."

The journey reportedly cost over $2,000 per dog.

Meanwhile, Mariah and James are leasing a luxury home for $250,000 per month.

The newly-engaged couple have rented a mansion in The Oaks, a gated community in Calabasas, California and have taken on the lease "with an option to purchase", according to TMZ.

The 18,000 square foot house also features a sauna and a gym and is set over one acre.

And although both Mariah and James are still legally wed to their estranged spouses, Nick Cannon and Erica Packer, she is already making plans for a huge ceremony in Europe this summer.

A source said: "Mariah is just beyond excited right now.

"She has wanted to be his wife pretty much since they first got together, and has already started to plan what type of wedding she wants to have.

"Mariah wants the wedding to be this coming summer and she said she would really love it if they could get married where they first fell in love, in the Mediterranean region.

"She wants this wedding to be the biggest and most expensive wedding that the world has ever seen!"
