Nick Cannon slams rumors about Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon isn't pulling any punches when it comes to squashing rumors that his upcoming album will contain "controversial" lyrics about his estranged wife Mariah Carey and their highly publicized divorce.
Cannon took to Twitter to directly deny that he recorded any songs that criticize Carey, writing, "I will never say anything negative about @MariahCarey. We are forever a family rooted in love."
Cannon, 34, and Carey, 45, got married at a private ceremony in April 2008. The couple, who share two children, confirmed in August that they had separated.
Today, Cannon continued to defend his estranged wife and their right to privacy.
"I am always an open book but Personal matters are just that 'Personal.' So please respect my family and respect the process," Cannon tweeted.
He also sent a message to media outlets he believes are perpetuating the rumors, writing, "In other words, all you vultures and bottom feeders searching for a story can go #ChokeYourself #Ncredible."
