'Crown has been a massive part of my life for the last 20 years and that absolutely remains the case today - my continuing Crown shareholding represents my single largest investment,' Mr Packer said of the deal.

'I am still vitally interested in Crown's success as a world-class resort and gaming business. The sale allows me to continue my long term involvement with Crown and at the same time to better diversify my investment portfolio.'

It deals comes after recent negotiations between Crown and Las Vegas casino giant Wynn Resort fell apart.

Crown sources said they were unaware but not surprised about Mr Packer's plan to sell shares to Melco.

The businessman was spotted strolling through Holmby Park near the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, looking notably trimmer than when he was last seen in public 

'We knew Packer had put Crown in play when Wynn came knocking,'  a source told the Sydney Morning Herald. 

'But I'm not sure that this means he is going to sell out altogether ... and I don't think he will.'

Mr Packer said he was thrilled Mr Ho and Melco have invested in Crown.

The pair were previously business partners in a Chinese casino joint venture in Macau before the 2016 arrest of poulan pro 18 inch 2 cycle gas chainsaw certified refurbished employees for the illegal promotion of gambling.

'Over the last 15 years, Lawrence has built one of the world's leading resort and gaming companies,' Mr Packer said. 

'Melco's award-winning resorts have set the standard internationally and are a testament to Lawrence's vision and efforts. Crown is a stronger company with Lawrence and Melco as a strategic shareholder.'

Mr Ho added: 'I view Melco's investment in Crown as an incredible opportunity to purchase a strategic stake in what I believe to be Australia's premier provider of true integrated resort experiences.'

'Crown's resorts in Perth and Melbourne are world class entertainment destinations and I believe that Crown Sydney, much like Melco's Morpheus property, will create an architectural icon for the city, the country and the world.'

He has praised girlfriend, Canadian-born socialite Kylie Lim, for helping him through though recent tough times following his bitter break-up with pop star fiancée Mariah Carey at the end of 2016.
