In the September 21 episode of The Diary Of A Ceo podcast, Cannon said that Carey was his rock. “To be honest, I probably wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for how hard she went with the doctors, with me, my stubbornness.”

Nick explained that Mariah was the “perfect wife”, and even dealing with her own stuff, she helped him during his battle. “Granted, she is who she is, and dealing with all the pressures of being Mariah Carey. But then being loving enough to take on all of my stuff”. 

He even added that the diagnosis “probably took a toll” on their relationship. “Just because of the person I was in my head, and the struggles that I was dealing with. It probably took a toll on our relationship, but it definitely brought us together”. But despite the split, Nick says he is grateful for Mariah’s support. “I feel like I went hard for her and will still go hard. I’d lay down my life for her today. It’s just what you do. It’s family.”

The former couple were married from 2008 to 2016 and share two children, the twins Monroe and Moroccan, 12. Cannon also has ten more children with five other women.

Lupus is an autoimmune condition, which causes chronic inflammation in many parts of the body. Some other celebrities have this disease, such as Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga.
