Mariah’s secret wedding

A source close to Mariah Carey has confirmed that the 38-year-old singer wed 27-year-old actor, Nick Cannon yesterday.

The ceremony was reportedly held at Carey’s newly-purchased home in Eleuthera in the Bahamas, and attended by such celebs as Carey’s longtime friend, rapper Da Brat.

“Everyone is happy to see her happy,” the source told The New York Post. “And it could work out–some people know each other for five years and get divorced. Maybe this is true, instant love.”

Meanwhile, another source expressed concern about the newly-weds, who have been dating for one month. “There was no prenup – there wasn’t time.”

The 17-carat diamond ring seen on Carey’s hand looks suspiciously similar to the engagement ring that Cannon gave Victoria’s Secret model, Selita Ebanks, whom he dated for six weeks prior to proposing. Ebanks’ rep has confirmed that the model did return the reportedly $2.5 million rock to Cannon.
