Nick Cannon got jokes!
In honor of Throwback Thursday, the rapper, who recently has been making headlines for his new turban accessories, shared with fans a series of old photos of he and his ex-wife, Mariah Carey.
At first, it seemed to be sentimental, but then, you quickly realize the comedian is having some fun with the newly surfaced images of Carey and her rumored new boo, Bryan Tanaka.
Photos hit the Web this week of the multi-Grammy Award-winning singer and her backup dancer kissing on the beach in Hawaii. In one photo, the apparent lovebirds recreated the classic honeymoon pose — Tanaka carrying Carey like a baby.
But watch out; apparently, Cannon does it better.
Nick first shared a snapshot of himself carrying a fresh-faced, bikini-clad singer with the caption: “#TBT This is how you do it! LOL #IkeTurnUp #WePetty.”
He captioned the other image, “#TBT It’s all love! No hate! But damn we looked Amazing!!! Energy evolves and Frequencies change but love never dies… @MariahCarey will always be my family and the Queen so anyone looking to divide that or spew hate, check that shit at the door! Salute to the Queen!!!”
The comedian’s sweet, yet playful, message comes just weeks after Carey and billionaire former fiancé, James Packer, called it quits. It’s still unclear why the couple split, but there are rumors that it had something to do with Mariah’s budding romance with Tanaka.
Nick and Carey, who share two children together, 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, separated in 2014. In December of the same year, Cannon officially filed for divorce.
In November, Cannon and Carey’s divorce was finalized.
