Nick Cannon Defends Mariah Carey In Twitter Rant

9-4-2014 12-04-26 PM

Amid tabloids that suggest Nick Cannon’s marriage with Mariah Carey is headed towards a divorce, the comedian took to Twitter to address the rumors and assure that the couple’s “Trouble in Paradise” is actually quite cordial.

Recent reports revealed that Cannon was subject to a confidentialty agreement with Carey, which barred him from saying anything about the split or face hefty financial penalties if disregarded.

Cannon, who has remained mum on the situation with Carey, unleashed a torrent of thoughts with a series of tweets that went a little something like this:

“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. 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 [sic]. 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. At this difficult time I would ask all civilized people to please respect my family and this process.

What infuriates me most is to hear people slander @MariahCarey. I will forever be in debted [sic] 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! While I would like to remain silent I can no longer allow this to happen. I love @MariahCarey and that will never change!!!

If the media wants to portray me as the Bad guy that’s fine. But it is unfair to drag innocent people into the equation. Others have lives, families, and careers and for the media to slander them is down right evil and illegal. I apologize to anyone who’s gotten caught up in this unwarranted drama. BTW Shouts out to the so called “Sources”! I hope the check was worth it. ‘Don’t worry about my life, worry about why you’re worried about my life!’

And finally, “Trouble in Paradise” is the dumbest phrase I’ve ever heard! I would never say that sh-t. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming… #radiosilence.”

Well, there you have it, folks. The split doesn’t seem to harbor scandal or any malicious reasons as to why the couple decided to go their separate ways. It’s just two people who just don’t want to be together anymore — The End.

What do you think of Nick Cannon’s Twitter rant? Is the couple headed towards trouble?
