Ever since news broke of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's rumored divorce, reports have been rolling in left and right on all the supposed juicy details. The couple has mostly stayed mum on the subject, but if Nick's latest rant is to be believed, they've never said anything at all until now.
Nick took to Twitter today with a pretty serious rant about his marriage to Mariah and the "evil bottom feeders" spreading rumors about it — and about how he's still very much in love with the mama to his two children. He even denied he said there was "trouble in paradise" in an interview with The Insider With Yahoo, as previously reported. He covered a lot of territory here, so bear with us.
Over the course of nearly an hour, Nick shared his thoughts on rumors, Mariah, family, and the press... but mostly Mariah. "I have personally been absent from social media for the past few months for obvious reasons but I feel the need to finally speak up," he began. "During this challenging time for me and my family it saddens me that the media can be such evil bottom feeders."
"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," he continued, in something resembling a statement — but we catch his meaning. He explained further, "So whatever your favorite gossip outlet is reporting has been created within their own imagination."
"At this difficult time I would ask all civilized people to please respect my family and this process," said another tweet, before Nick launched full-heartedly into a Mariah lovefest.
"What infuriates me the most is to hear people slander [Mariah]. I will forever be indebted to her for blessing me with our children. I will always love her unconditionally for this and so much more. [Mariah] is an amazing mother and I trust her wholeheartedly," he gushed about his wife. "So to see false reports in the media stating otherwise is absurd! While I would like to remain silent I can no longer allow this to happen. I love [Mariah] and that will never change!!!"
Nick says that it's fine if "the media" portrays him as "the bad guy," but it's "unfair to drag innocent people into the equation." He called out those feeding the rumors to the press — which we're guessing is a way of rejecting at least some of them. "BTW shouts out to the so called 'sources'!" he said. "I hope the check was worth it."
"And finally, 'trouble in paradise' is the dumbest phrase I've ever heard," he concluded, denying a line supposedly from his interview with The Insider — and the only confirmation we had that he and Mariah were separated. "I would never say that s—. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. #radiosilence"
