He’s been plagued by health problems, but Nick Cannon opened up to guests at the launch event of American Gentleman Magazine Presented by Hennessy V.S in L.A to reveal that he is feeling better than he has in quite some time.
He was overheard telling fans that his health had, indeed, been in jeopardy but he was now “doing much better,” as he’s been working hard to take care of himself and getting a lot of rest.
He seemed in great spirits, joking around with admirers and laughing. When a photographer asked him if wife Mariah Carey was indeed in talks to be a judge on the upcoming season of “American Idol,” he responded with a coy smile, saying, “I don’t know if she’s in talks, she talks to a lot of people. I’m not her manager, I’m her husband.”
And, as we know now, Mariah has just confirmed that she is taking Jennifer Lopez’s spot on the talent show.
The deal was announced with show biz flair at the Television Critics Association summer tour in Beverly Hills during comments by Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly about the exodus of Idol judges.
“I am so excited to be joining Idol,” Carey said via speaker phone. “First of all, I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there to tell you, but I think you know this all kind of just happened real quickly, so I can’t wait to get started in a couple months.”
The deal was said to have been struck earlier today.
