Carey married TV actor Nick Cannon at the home she just bought in Eleuthera in 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.
Carey is 38 and Cannon is 11 years her junior, so, apparently this "marriage" is every hip hopper's MILF fantasy come to life. Cannon was recently linked to Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks, to "whom he proposed via the Times Square JumboTron. Five months later, the couple broke up."
[The] dazzling 17-carat diamond ring Carey wears is similar to the one Cannon gave Ebanks, whom he dated for six weeks before proposing. Ebanks' rep confirmed to media outlets yesterday that the model did, in fact, return the blingy ring, said to be worth $2.5 million, to Cannon.
Oh, and if you're asking, Mariah Carey reportedly had Nick sign a "quickie" prenuptial agreement. Maybe our envy is showing—Nick is quite the hotness—but is it okay to recycle engagement rings?
