Is Mimi's Emancipation Dunzo?

Access Hollywood seems pretty sure of themselves concerning their new report that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have gotten themselves engaged to be wed. I'm taking this report with a HUGE grain of salt since it comes by way of a "source close to Mariah" but Mimi has been sporting a huge-ass rock on her ring finger lately so ... maybe?

It appears Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are ready to make beautiful music together. A source close to Mariah has confirmed to Access Hollywood that the music diva is engaged to Nick Cannon. Reps for both singers were unavailable for comment. The couple sent the rumor mill into overdrive when 38-year-old Mariah (with Nick on her arm) was seen sporting a dazzling new piece of bling on her ring finger at the after party for her Tribeca film, "Tennessee," in New York. When asked at the party what he loved about Mariah, 27-year-old Nick gave a one-word answer. "Everything," he told People. Up until recently, Mariah had been romantically linked to music executive Mark Sudack. However, she never confirmed the romance. Mariah was previously married to record executive Tommy Mottola from 1993 – 1998. Nick was previously engaged to Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks in 2007. However, the couple called off the engagement that same year. This will be the first marriage for the "Drumline" star.

I dunno ... there ain't enough info for me to believe this 100% but stranger things have happened. It'd be just like Mariah to rob the cradle for her next marriage. [Source]
