Mariah Carey’s got herself a new boo and it’s safe to say that ex-husband Nick Cannon isn’t feeling it.
Shortly after the “Mariah’s World” star, 46, was photographed kissing and goofing off with backup dancer Bryan Tanaka, 33, in Hawaii, Cannon took to Instagram to share a similar throwback photo of himself and then-wife Carey frolicking beach-side.
“#TBT This is how you do it! LOL,” the “America’s Got Talent” host, captioned the post, adding the hashtags #IkeTurnUp and #WePetty.
Not to our surprise, fans began to take offense, claiming Cannon had dissed the iconic pop star. “OH SH*T U SAVAGE BRUH LOL,” wrote one user. “Let the past be the past and move on. Show some respect and love for your new pregnant woman,” a second user commented. Meanwhile, others believed the 36-year-old was dropping hints, surrounding a possible rekindling. “Get back together already,” urged another fan. “Yall need to be back together. She tripping and you dipping with a baby on the way,” added yet another spectator.
Following a variety of colorful commentary, Cannon returned to the social media platform to clear the air, noting that Carey will “Always Be My Baby.”
“It’s all love! No hate!”he wrote, silencing accusations that he was mocking the singer. “But damn we looked amazing!!! Energy evolves and frequencies change but love never dies … Mariah Carey will always be my family and the queen so anyone looking to divide that or spew hate, check that (expletive) at the door! Salute to the queen!!!”
As previously reported, Cannon, filed for divorce from diva in December 2014 after six years of marriage. The former couple share 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. The singer then moved on with Australian billionaire James Packer, whom she got engaged to earlier this year, before calling off their engagement in early October.
