Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon got Married

Several reports has been published that Mariah Carey 38, married Nick Cannon, 27, on Wednesday at Carey's home in the island of Eleuthera, in the Bahamas. Sources say the two became involved after he appeared in the video for her song "Bye, Bye (video below)." He is cast as Mariah Carey's lover in the said new video. After dating less than two months, the pair got hitched in an impromptu civil ceremony.

Nicholas Scott Canon, a San Diego native, an actor (Nickelodeon) and rapper is 11 years her junior. Their marriage was confirmed by his family, one relative is saying, "Yes, we know … I'm not going to give you any details … He called us and told us all about it. We are happy for him ... If that is what he wants, and then we are happy for him."

Bishop Clifford Petty of the National Church of God in the Caribbean also confirmed that he presided over the wedding of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. The bishop provided no details except to say that he did not give a sermon.

Carey recently has been seen sporting a 17-carat diamond ring from Jacob & Co. Jewelers. That was reportedly given by Cannon described as, "crafted from platinum and features a square emerald cut fancy light pink diamond as the center stone surrounded by 58 intense pink diamonds and two half moon diamonds on each side … The total carat weight of the ring — center stone is 10 carats — is a jaw-dropping 17 carats with a value of $2.5 million."

Last April 28, when asked by MTV News Offices about Mariah Carey’s engagement rumors with him, Nick Cannon squirms and says, “ … She's a 'Good Friend' … a great person ... I can't even know what to say. She's probably the most festive, remarkable person I've ever met. Good friend … Rumors happen. They do.”

This is Cannon's first but Carey's second marriage. It could be well recalled way back in 1993, her famous and extravagant wedding to Tommy Mottola, who is a music executive, in which they had a bitter divorce in 1998.

The actor, who has been reported with previous romances to singer Christina Milian and voluptuous reality star Kim Kardashian, and last year gave a 15-carat stone to Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks.

It has been speculated that the Carey-Cannon match is a publicity stunt. In the wake of her just released No. 1 album—"EMC2" which is now topping the charts, and Canon has at least four movies due for release this year, nonetheless, Carey is one of the most successful artists in the music industry, and barely needs a marriage to garner attention. She's unexpectedly scored a No. 1 hit off the album with "Touch My Body."

Taking into account that Nick Canon has been cast as Mariah Carey’s lover in her upcoming new video, it’s most likely to ask, had the superstar diva given the young actor a much significant role in real life?
