Because we all want to know what the one-time owner of a giant Mariah back tattoo thinks about Far Far Away’s upcoming royal wedding spectacular, Mariah Carey’s second husband Nick Cannon hopped on Instagram and congratulated his future ex-wife on her recent engagement to her billionaire boyfriend James Packer. Nick threw up a picture of himself lying in a hospital bed from an episode of Real Husbands of Hollywood with the words “It’s just a ring Nick…” (raise your hand if you also read that in Kevin Hart’s voice) along with a caption that read:
“Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple“
For those of you thinking “DUH – I’d write the same thing if I was looking to score an invitation to a billionaire’s wedding“, E! says that Nick is legitimately happy for Mariah. A source says Nick didn’t know James was going to slip a gerbil-sized diamond on her finger, but he wasn’t that shocked, since he figured it would happen eventually. The source goes on to say that Mimi and Nick’s kids (excuse me, Dem Babies) like James and James treats them well, and that’s all he cares about.
Now, I don’t know if I’d respond to my ex-piece getting remarried with an LOL, but I don’t doubt that Nick did. I bet Nick started laughing the second he realized he was about to be replaced as the person Mimi calls when she needs help fishing a Hello Kitty doll out of her bathtub drain. “It’s James’ problem now! Hahahahaha!”
