Nick Cannon has broken his silence about Mariah Carey’s engagement to billionaire James Packer.
Amid speculation that Cannon felt a way about wedding bells ringing for Carey and Packer (who splurged more than $7 million the diamond ring), Cannon has set the record straight on what he really thinks about his ex-wife moving on with someone else.
He shared a meme that had been going around from a scene of BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood. It shows actor and comedian talking to Cannon, who is lying in a hospital bed.
The words read, “It’s just a ring Nick…..”
Cannon not only took time to laugh at the meme, but also congratulate Carey on her romance.
He wrote in the caption, “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple”

His feel good words are no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to their split. From the moment it came out that he filed for divorce, some speculated that it was because of her “Diva” attitude,” he made it clear that fans should not count on him to ever say anything negative about Carey publicly. And he has kept his vow since then.
The two have not only had an amicable split but have been able to co-parent and even spend the holidays together with their five-year-old twins. It’s great to see him congratulating them publicly. It’s also very likely the engagement was not news to him.
