Nick Cannon recently came clean about why he and his former girlfriend Kim Kardashian broke up. In a discussion with fellow Americaâ€™s Got Talent host Howard Stern, Cannon revealed that he briefly dated the reality star back in 2006.
Their union came after the infamous Ray J sex tape, which surprisingly was also the source of their split. “We talked about this tape, and she told me there was no tape,” Nick explained. “If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like ‘That was before me,’ because she is a great girl.â€ť
After calling Kim K â€śone of the nicest people you’ll ever meet,” Cannon, whoâ€™s happily married to Mariah Carey, said the lie was the breaking point.
In the end, Cannon had nothing but great things to say about Kim, like she is a great business woman. But the way he kind of gushed, it makes you wonder: had she come clean would he be with Mariah and she with Kanye? Â Weâ€™ll never know.
