Mariah Carey is getting married! The ‘Fantasy’ singer is engaged to billionaire James Packer, but how is Mimi’s ex, Nick Cannon, handling the news? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details whether or not Mariah’s engagement has left Nick completely heartbroken.
Mariah Carey, 45, is having one sweet day, now that her honey, James Packer, 48, has popped the question to the “Butterfly” singer. While she’s ready to give James her all, did the news give Nick Cannon, 35, a broken heart? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned Nick’s reaction, now that it looks like he and the mother of his children aren’t getting back together.
Instead of feeling sad for himself, Nick is actually “very happy for Mariah,” a source close to the entertainer EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. Nick’s ex-wife and James are getting married after 8-months of dating and he’s glad for Mariah. “At the end of the day,” the source says, “[Nick] really wants what is best for their kids and he knows that if Mariah is happy, then that is good for everyone.”
Wow! It sounds like Nick is being the bigger man about this, for the sake of Morocco and Marilyn, their four-year-old twins. In fact, the two put aside any bad blood over the break-up to spend Halloween together, with Nick dressing up as the Incredible Hulk while Mariah went as a very glamorous witch.
“He wants the mother of his children to be in the best mood and being engaged,” the source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com, adding that Nick wants to do best thing for family. “[If Mariah’s] moving on makes that happen, Nick is totally fine with it.”
It was actually Nick was the one who filed for divorce in Dec. 2014, following a six-month split from the “Heartbreaker” singer. Nick was pretty devastated by the break-up, and saddened by rumors he had quickly moved on. “You know what, honestly I’m in such a space right now I’m just trying to be as respectable, as classy, and the best human I could possibly be,” Nick said when talking to HollywoodLife.com, “but it’s funny cause of course people are gonna say things.”
While Mariah has been falling for James, Nick has also been getting back into the dating game. He was spotted having a very fancy dinner date with the gorgeous model, Winnie Harlow, 21, in Sept. 2015. He shouldn’t have any trouble finding a “plus-one” if he gets an invite to Mariah’s wedding.
