Nick Cannon went on a lengthy Twitter rant on Wednesday night and addressed the rumors surrounding he and Mariah Carey’s split.
“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,” the comedian wrote in a series of tweets. “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 rumors.”
He continued, “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.”
The 33-year-old also defended Mariah and confessed his love for his wife.
“What infuriates me most is to hear people slander @MariahCarey. I will forever be in debted 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!!!”
He added, “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.”
Over the past several weeks, multiple sources have come forward to several media outlets, spilling information regarding the duo’s split. An insider told TMZ that part of the reason for the breakup was because Nick admitted to sleeping with Kim Kardashian. An insider also revealed to the news outlet that Mariah didn’t like that her husband was constantly working.
Cannon brought his Twitter rant to an end by addressing the “sources” that have essentially leaked stories.
“BTW Shouts out to the so called “Sources,” he wrote. “I hope the check was worth it.”
