Nick Cannon Congratulates His Ex Mariah Carey on Her Reported Engagement

It looks like Nick Cannon is totally cool (or at least has come to quick terms) with the news of his ex’s reported new engagement to a billionaire.

On January 22, reports began to swirl that Mariah Carey had gotten engaged to an Australian businessman (and billionaire) named James Packer, who she had been dating for just under a year. In response to the news, late last night Cannon, her ex-beau and the father of her two children, Moroccan and Monroe, posted a screenshot from a scene of him on pal Kevin Hart’s Real Housewives parody, Real Husbands of Hollywood.

In the image, Cannon lies in a hospital bed while Hart looms over him, looking concerned. Text added to the photo reads, “It’s just a ring Nick,” referencing the massive 35 carat engagement ring Packer proposed to Carey with.

Cannon’s comments on the image? All in good nature: “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple”

This is the first time Carey has been attached to anyone romantically since her breakup from Cannon, with whom she was married for six years. Cannon filed for divorce in December 2014, though tabloid reports are now claiming that the divorce was never actually finalized. In addition, it seems as though Packer may also still technically bound to his ex, Erica Packer, from whom he officially separated in late 2013.
