Cannon was a fledgling entertainer when he met Carey at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards. Carey, who was well-known as an international superstar, was ten years older than Cannon, but they established a friendship nonetheless.

They started dating in early 2008 and got married only six weeks later, keeping their whirlwind ceremony a secret from the press initially. The couple received a lot of backlash due to their age difference, but they certainly seemed happy. They even made it a point to renew their vows every year of their marriage.

In December 2010, Carey and Cannon announced that they were expecting twins. They welcomed their two babies, whom they named Monroe and Moroccan, in April 2011.

Although the family seemed over the moon with happiness and renewed their vows again in April 2012, rumors had started circulating that Cannon had cheated on Carey. It was an allegation he vehemently denied.

However, in December 2014, Cannon filed for divorce from Carey. Their divorce was finalized in 2016. In spite of their separation, the pair continues to co-parent successfully, raising their twins primarily out of the spotlight.

Will Nick Cannon ever get married again?

In a recent podcast, Cannon revealed that after his divorce from Carey, he resolved that he would never get married again, stating that the “construct” is not for him.
