See the image on the bottom left?
If that looks familiar, it’s because it reminds you of a certain image that circulated when actor/rapper/host, Nick Cannon, and Mariah were together.

Nick took to the ‘gram to show his fans how picking up Mariah on a beach is supposed to be done, because Bryan looked like he was struggling!

#TBT This is how you do it! LOL #IkeTurnUp #WePetty

Some of us knew it was all in good fun, but the rest of us needed clarification. Apparently, some got their panties in a bunch, so Nick had to clear the air and express nothing but love for his ex and mother of his children.

“Energy evolves and Frequencies change but love never dies…”

I like that 🙂
