Mariah Carey’s ex responded to her engagement in a funny way

MARIAH CAREY NICK CANNON

Here's what Nick Cannon had to say about Mariah Carey and James Packer's engagement news...

It’s not often we hear how celebrity ex-couples react to developments in each other’s new romances, but when we do, it’s always note-worthy. On Saturday, Nick Cannon responded to his ex-wife Mariah Carey's engagement news in a very public way. The actor posted a meme to Instagram addressing the news that billionaire James Packer had proposed to Mariah.

Here's what Nick had to say about it...

Nick and Mariah, who divorced last year, share twins Monroe and Moroccan together. Mariah met James in Aspen in 2014, and the new couple seem to have been head-over-heels for each other ever since. 

“We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing, and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit it off,” Mariah told American TV host Steve Harvey in November.

Neither Mariah nor James has acknowledged the proposal yet, but Mariah has been proudly sporting the bling.
