A source close to Nick Cannon has confirmed exclusively to Latina.com that Cannon and Mariah Carey are married! The couple wed yesterday in a small ceremony on an island and it was "very impulsive," according to our source. The wedding was attended by a few close friends of the couple, including Da Brat. Details forthcoming, but we'd like to be the first to say congrats to the happy couple!
On the one hand this sounds all too impossible to believe ... a secret engagement suddenly turns into a full-fledged wedding? On the other hand, Mariah Carey doesn't really need to generate bullshizz stories like this for media hype or publicity ... no that that fact alone makes this ridiculousness ring with any more truth but ... yeah. I mean I guess Nick Cannon could be hurtin' for attention and he's the one behind this crazy story. I won't believe it 'til I hear from Mimi herself ... or People magazine. [Source]
UPDATE: The New York Post is now also confirming the secret nuptials:
"Touch My Body" singer Mariah Carey got secretly hitched to her 27-year-old boyfriend-of-one-month, shocking the chart-topping songbird's family and friends, The Post has learned. Carey married little-screen actor Nick Cannon at the home Carey just bought in Eleuthera, the Bahamas, a source close to the singer said. "They have been smitten with each other for days, weeks," the friend said. "And she's always had a crush on him." It's the second marriage for Carey, who took her first walk down the aisle with record kingpin Tommy Mottola. Cannon has last been linked with Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks, to whom Cannon proposed via the Times Square jumbotron. Five months later, the couple broke up. Carey, 38, and her boy-toy had tongues wagging when she was seen sporting Cannon on her arm and a shiny ring on her finger at the Tribeca Film Festival. When asked what he loved about Carey, Cannon reportedly cooed "everything." "Everyone is happy to see her happy," Carey's friend told The Post. "And it could work out -" some people know each other for five years and get divorced, maybe this is true instant love." Not everyone is so over-the-moon. "There was no pre-nup - there wasn't time," said another worried source. Guests at the wedding included Carey's longtime pal, rapper Da Brat. Calls to Carey's rep weren't returned.
I ... have no words ... but I guess I should offer my congrats. Wow. [Source]
