The 35-year-old shared an Instagram meme that appeared to show himself passing out after getting a glimpse at Mariah's new 35-carat engagement ring just days after her engagement was confirmed.

In the picture, taken from his television show Real Husbands of Hollywood, the father-of-two can be seen lying in a hospital bed while comedian Kevin Hart stands over him looking concerned. The caption reads: "It's just a ring Nick..."
