Nick Cannon praises his former spouse, Mariah Carey, and claims that she rescued him during a critical moment in his life.
In an interview on The Diary of a CEO, the television producer shared that the singer was with him when he blacked out after a jog. Cannon clarified that this incident occurred prior to his official diagnosis of lupus, leaving him uncertain about the cause. Nevertheless, he sensed that something was awry as he found himself unconscious in the bathroom.
“Mariah came in and found me,” he said. “And they rushed me to the ER in Aspen… I didn’t think it was that bad because I had just got back from jogging in Aspen. So they’re like, ‘He probably has altitude sickness.’ I was just dehydrated so that was the narrative we were going with. But the longer I was in the hospital [the doctors] were like, ‘Oh, maybe he has a kidney stone because there’s something going on back there.’ And I was like, ‘No, it wasn’t a kidney stone.’”
Cannon added, “But I think that’s what you do when you find a help-mate. When you find someone that you’re in matrimony with. I went hard for her, and I’d still go hard for her. I’d lay down my life for her, even today.”
The Wild ‘N Out host has previously expressed his affection for all of his children’s mothers, with whom he has fathered 12 children. However, he has consistently regarded Carey as the one true love of his life.
“Like the greatest? I mean, I always talk about that,” Cannon said of the Grammy-winning singer. “Then it goes viral, and our fans get mad at me. But I was 12 years old with Mariah Carey pictures on my wall, and that becomes my wife. And the fact that she’s the coolest person I ever met.”
He continued, “She’s just always happy, always doing for others. No matter what’s happening in life. I’m like, ‘Wow, a person can really operate like that and don’t allow negative energy into they space’ … When I found that out about how remarkable she was, that woman is not human. She’s a gift from God.”
