Francesca, who lives in a $16million penthouse in Darlinghurst, had confirmed the pair were dating in December 2020, telling the Daily Telegraph: ‘Adam is a great guy. We’ve been dating for a while.’

However, they broke things off just seven months later.

‘It was great for a while, but they had very different lifestyles. In the end, it just didn’t work out,’ a source told Daily Mail Australia in August 2021.

The heiress’ previous boyfriends include Van Hoorn guitarist Joshua Mullane and Melbourne property developer Kelli Holland.

She also reportedly dated Sam Zacharia, the personal trainer son of celebrity plastic surgeon Dr Michael Zacharia, in 2020.

Francesca is the granddaughter of the late Kerry Packer and daughter of Gretel Packer and her ex-husband Nick Barham. Her uncle is casino mogul James Packer.

Back in 2016, she played down being an heiress in an interview with Australian Harper’s Bazaar.

‘It’s just not relevant anymore. Everyone on the planet inherits something, so everyone on the planet is an heir or heiress in some way,’ she continues. 

‘Do I feel like the family empire is being placed on my shoulders, all wrapped up in a nice little bow? No. I don’t think about it at all. It’s not a term that is part of my vocabulary whatsoever.’

Francesca’s personal net worth is unknown, however it was once reported that her mother Gretel received more than $1 billion from her late father’s estate when she severed financial ties with brother James.

What wealth? 'Everyone on the planet inherits something, so everyone on the planet is an heir or heiress in some way,' she said in 2016. (Pictured on May 18 in Sydney)
