The 35-year-old actor released “Oh Well” last week, and the lyrics of the song say, “Baby girl, don’t cry / I won’t lie / Our relationship was a lie.”
After the song came out, the speculations that the lyrics might be about his estranged wife, Mariah Carey, who is engaged to James Packer, started to flow. But Cannon’s response was quick, as the ‘America’s Got Talent’ host shared his thoughts on Twitter.
“How many times do I have to reiterate @MariahCarey and I are super cool! Stop trying to create negativity, we will never subscribe to it,” he tweeted on Wednesday, March 23.
“Like I have always said I will forever Respect and Love @MariahCarey and will never say anything negative about the mother of my children,” Cannon also said.
In 2015, the comedian opened up about Carey in an interview on the Meredith Vieira Show.
“It’s one of those things, I’m a hopeless romantic too,” he told the host. “Through this learning process, you never say never. To me one thing I know, that will always be the love of my life, always be my family and that’s never going to change.”
Carey and Cannon broke up in 2014 after six years of marriage. They are parents to twins Monroe and Moroccan, 4.
