Nick Cannon sure has a good sense humour. Following the release of photographs of ex wife Mariah Carey having fun on the beach with new rumoured boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, the America's Got Talent host took to Instagram to remind his followers that they too, were once a happy couple.
Nick and Mariah were married for six years, before divorcing in 2014
A photo on Nick's account shows him carrying his then wife in the sea, with the caption "#TBT This is how you do it! LOL #IkeTurnUp #WePetty". This was posted in response to the release of very similar photos of Mariah and her back-up dancer Bryan, 33, during a romantic trip to Hawaii. The duo looked to be having a great time playing in the sea, sparking rumours that they are officially an item, a month after the singer called off her engagement to Australian billionaire James Packer.
While followers were quick to assume that Nick was pining over his old love, with one comment reading "I hope you guys get back together", Nick responded with another throwback picture of the pair, also on the beach, saying: "#TBT It's all love! No hate! But damn we looked Amazing!!! Energy evolves and Frequencies change but love never dies... @MariahCarey will always be my family and the Queen so anyone looking to divide that or spew hate, check that **** at the door! Salute to the Queen!!!"

Still on good terms, they spent Thanksgiving together this year, with Nick telling IB Times: "It's all about the kids."
