James was previously married to Erica Packer. They got married in 2007 and split in 2013, but continue to co-parent their children – Indigo, Jackson and Emmanuelle.

Erica reportedly received a $100million divorce payment, and purchased a family home in Los Angeles shortly after the break-up.

James also bought an $80million Los Angeles mansion so he can be closer to Erica and their children whenever he is in town.

When Erica visits Sydney, she often lives with her former husband and their children at James’ $72million Crown penthouse home.

Erica has since found love again with Shannon Bennett and they have reportedly bought a house together.

Before his relationship with Erica, James was married to Jodhi Meares and they have remained friends ever since their split.

They tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Sydney in 1999, where around 750 guests attended and Elton John performed.

However, they separated three years later in 2002 and divorced shortly after.
