Los Angeles, March 25 (IANS) Rapper Nick Cannon has denied claims that his song “Oh Well” is directed at his former wife and singer Mariah Carey.
Ever since the scathing track was released a few days ago, fans have been speculating that it was written with the Carey in mind, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Cannon has now denied — via a string of tweets — claims that the song is a diss directed at the singer, whom he split from in 2014 after six years of marriage.
The 35-year-old star said that he and his former wife are on good terms and he would never say anything bad about her.
“Sorry to disappoint the bottom feeders but you won’t be hearing any diss records from me unless it’s about the government! Lol. How many times do I have to reiterate Mariah Carey and I are super cool! Stop trying to create negativity, we will never subscribe to it.”
Cannon went on saying that he and Carey “are both very happy and have both moved on”.
“So all the outlets reaching for gossip, it’s not 2014 anymore. Do your jobs better! Old News. Like I have always said I will forever Respect and Love Mariah Carey and will never say anything negative about the mother of my children,” he said.
Carey has completely moved on from him as she is now engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer.
After learning of her engagement, Cannon shared his excitement on Instagram and congratulated her. “All Love Congrats to Mariah Carey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union…Great People Great Couple,” he wrote earlier this year.
