Nick Cannon Responds to Rumors He's Responsible for Mariah and Her Dancer Boo Calling It Quits

He added his signature comedic flare.

Published April 11, 2017

Yesterday, news broke that Mariah Carey split with her boyfriend of five months, back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka. Reports claimed that Tanaka was the jealous type, and wasn't comfortable with Mimi spending so much time with her ex-husband Nick Cannon due to their co-parenting relationship.

Now, Cannon has spoken with Entertainment Tonight, and he's sharing just how he feels about Tanaka's alleged insecurity.

"Most men are jealous of me," he said, before adding, "I'm joking. But I know nothing about it. For me, at the end of the day, she's an amazing mother and we focus on our kids."

When asked to expound, the comedian made it clear that this isn't his fight, as he has bigger fish to fry in his own life.

"I know nothing about this," he said. "I got too many of my own relationship issues to be worried about an old relationship."

In addition to Tanaka's jealousy, it was also reported that he was also getting too comfortable with the singer's generous gifts, and she quickly grew tired playing the sugar mama role.
