Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are no longer a couple. The two ended their romance quite some time ago and they both moved on, although they remained friends. Since the split from Nick, Mariah has officially dated casino mogul James Packer. However, the romance ended, although Mariah and James were set to get married.
Since the split from James, Mariah has been linked to her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka. In fact, it has been claimed that Bryan was the reason why Mariah ended her relationship with James. The two have not confirmed the relationship, but without a doubt Mariah and Bryan seem to be very close. However, there is at least one person who does not believe in these rumors.
So, Mariah’s former husband, Nick Cannon, claimed that Mariah is not really dating Bryan and she is faking the whole story to get more attention on her new reality show. Nick made these claims during an interview with Howard Stern. The star revealed that he thinks that Mariah’s relationship with Tanaka is just a publicity stunt.
“First of all, I think the whole reality show is fake. I’m a producer, so I know how [it works]. Like, you can’t have a well-lit private conversation. Like, that s**t doesn’t happen,” he said. “I don’t buy none of that s**t,” Nick Cannon added. Nick also revealed that he was not happy to be in one of the episodes of Mariah’s World, but he was not upset, either. It happened at the birthday party of his twins with Mariah.
“I actually came. It was a party, so I showed up to hang out with my kids and I was like, ‘There’s f**king cameras here. But all right, y’all do whatever you gotta do.’ So that type of stuff doesn’t bother me because, again, we’re in it,” the star said. “This is the world that we’re in, but when you start trying to pull a fast one on people, that s**t is silly.” Nick also claimed that Mariah’s show is too staged and revealed that he is not a fan.
