Mariah Carey’s first marriage to Tommy Mottola ended back in 1998 and now it seems she has decided to try it again with MTV star Nick Cannon.

According to E! Online, family member Linda Cannon has confirmed the rumor. “Yes, we know,” she says. “He called us and told us about it. We are happy for him. If that is what he wants then we are happy for him.” Apparently she would not confirm that a wedding took place Wednesday at Carey’s home in the Bahamas stating that she wasn’t going to give out any details.

It was reported that Cannon spent $2.5 million on the 17-carat diamond ring that Mariah was spotted wearing. If I were Mariah I would get a cubic zirconia version of this ring for public appearances while the real one resides in a bank safety deposit box.

There were rumors floating around that the ring was actually originally made for a former lover (Victoria Secret’s model, Selita Ebanks) however the jeweller Jacob & Co. claim that Mariah’s ring is an original.
The question is ‘Is this a legal wedding’? There were doubts, however the legality of the marriage has been confirmed. Carey did meet all the legal requirements.
