Nick Cannon is setting the record straight about his relationship with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
Cannon, who was married to Mariah for seven years before they divorced in 2015, took to social media to slam rumors that there’s any bad blood between the two in a series of Twitter rants, where he called out the media for speculating that his new single was a “diss track” aimed at Carey.
“You know what I find funny, I actually released a spoken word piece about the corrupt system and the media pays it now mind… But someone releases one of my Character pieces from a film and media outlets flock to it making up stories about my ex… The devil is busy!” Cannon tweeted on March 22, referring to recent speculation that his scathing new song is about his past relationship with Mariah.
Cannon continued to blast the media for speculating that he was slamming Mariah with his new track, titled “Oh Well,” writing, “Sorry to disappoint the bottom feeders but you won’t be hearing any diss records from me unless it’s about the GOVERNMENT! LOL,” before adding that he and Mariah Carey have a “super cool” relationship following their split.
“How many times do I have to reiterate [Mariah Carey] and I are super cool! Stop trying to create negativity, we will never subscribe to it,” Nick continued on the social media site on March 22, noting that he and Carey “are both very happy and have both moved on.”
“Like I have always said I will forever Respect and Love [Mariah Carey] and will never say anything negative about the mother of my children. Y’all know me I never have a problem speaking my mind, so If I have something to say, I just come out and say it!” Nick Cannon said. “I don’t beat around the bush or hold my tongue 4 anyone. So let me put this eloquently as possible, Go choke on a fat one!”
“We got to learn how to navigate through the sensationalism and lies,” Nick continued in his pretty lengthy Twitter message, adding, “So all the outlets reaching for gossip, it’s not 2014 anymore. Do your jobs better!” alongside the hashtag “#OldNews.”
Nick’s Twitter outburst came in response to a number of media outlets speculating that Cannon’s new track “Oh Well” was actually a “diss track” aimed at Mariah and her fiancé, James Packer.
People speculated earlier this week that Cannon’s track may be slamming Mariah, citing that the lyrics appeared to be referencing Carey’s new relationship with Australian billionaire, Packer.
The magazine speculated that some of the song’s lyrics, including the lines “All you needed was a n**** with the money, cars and cribs” and “She didn’t like when I was broke, but she missed the old me. Wait, girl – you got me confused,” are proof that the song may be about Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s almost seven-year marriage.
Nick Cannon previously noted that things were still good between himself and Carey, who have two children together, when he congratulated Mariah and James on their engagement back in January.
“#AllLove,” Nick captioned a hilarious parody photo of himself lying in a hospital bed after seeing Carey’s new engagement ring on Instagram, which is estimated to weigh more than 35-carats and be worth close to $10 million.
“Congrats to [Mariah Carey] and James! May God Bless Your Future Union,” Nick continued to Carey and Packer, adding the hashtags #GreatPeople and #GreatCouple.
Cannon also used the photo sharing site to prove that there’s no bad blood between himself and Mariah earlier this week, posting a shot of Carey and the couple’s two children, Moroccan and Monroe, at a toy shop on March 22.
“So Dope! No, that’s not me in the Bear suit!! LOL But knowing my silly self I probably would’ve!,” Nick captioned the sweet family photo before adding the hashtags #LoveMyFamily, #Coparenting, #Adults, and #Respect.
