He may host America's Got Talent, but Nick Cannon's got a bone to pick with the celebrity gossip world at the moment.
A couple weeks ago, amidst speculation over the future of his marriage to Mariah Carey, Cannon supposedly acknowledged "trouble in paradise" and said the two stars had been living apart for months.
This public reveal allegedly led to a devastated and angry Mariah Carey, who sources say was peeved that her estranged husband leaked personal information to the press.
But Cannon says there's a problem with this chain of events: he never said a word!
“During this challenging time for me and my family it saddens me that the media can be such evil bottom feeders," Cannon Tweeted tonight.
But he wasn't finished.
"Because my family & I haven’t been forthcoming with personal information, people are quick to paint negative pictures and spread rumours...
"For the record I NEVER have, nor will I make a statement regarding my marriage. So whatever your favorite gossip outlet is reporting has been created within their own imagination…"
Hey, man. We got it from some other place! Blame them!
Reports vary on the basis for this marital strife (which Cannon does admit to here). Some say Carey is jealous of Cannon flirting with other women; others say Cannon thinks Carey is an emotional mess.
He's also been romantically linked to someone named Jasmine Sanders.
In conclusion... well, Cannon has a lot to say. Including a lot of nice things to say about Carey. We'll just let him take it from here, bullet point style:
- What infuriates me most is to hear people slander @MariahCarey . I will forever be in debted to her for blessing me with our children.
- I will always love her unconditionally for this and so much more. @MariahCarey is an amazing Mother and I trust her wholeheartedly. So to see false reports in the media stating otherwise is absurd!
- I love @MariahCarey and that will never change!!!
- And finally, ‘Trouble in Paradise’ is the dumbest phrase I’ve ever heard! I would never say that sh!t
