Nick Cannon was put in a pretty awkward situation when he was sat next to his ex-fiancée on the episode of Katie which airs today.
Cannon, Boris Kodjoe and Nelly stopped by Katie Couric’s talk show to chat about their BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood and Nick just so happened to be seated next to his ex-fiancée Selita Ebanks.
Nick attempted to save the awkward moment by trying to address the elephant in the room before the interview started. “So we’ll just clear this all up–we used to be engaged, so it’s not an awkward moment. ” Smiling and hugging her he added, “But we’re cool. We’re friends.”
Unfortunately, the America’s Got Talent host’s attempt to ease the awkwardness did not seem to alleviate the situation. It makes sense though, seeing as Cannon ended his engagement with the 30-year-old, former Victoria’s Secret model just seven months before marrying Mariah Carey in 2007.
