*Nick Cannon is putting the National Enquirer on notice over an article the publication is preparing to run that could result in the TV host/actor/comedian/rapper filing a slander and defamation lawsuit.
On Tuesday, Cannon posted to Instagram a purported article of unknown origin saying:
“The National Enquirer is preparing an article reporting Nick Cannon has suffered a nervous breakdown and his erratic behavior has given ex-wife Mariah Carey little choice but to petition for custody of their children.”
MORE LIES!!! So the @enquirer wants to play around with my children. Only Evil operates in this manner. What is the purpose? Except to exemplify pure immoral wickedness. If you report these lies expect a slander and defamation lawsuit. Look everyone, see how the media is trying to break a King? It’s all good though, I’m a warrior! I was built for this! Me and my family, my mindset, and my spirit are all stronger than ever. I felt like releasing this so called “journalist” info to the public so you all can get at them, but instead I release nothing but positive energy into the Universe. No weapon formed against me shall prosper! I receive help through prayer and patience! #Blessed #Awakened
“I will not be silenced,” he wrote.
The National Enquirer piece allegedly also cites a new lawsuit reported on Monday by TMZ, wherein a man claims Cannon stole his app idea to build his own talent search app N’credible and is seeking $1.75 million in damages.
Cannon slapped back at the National Enquirer for noting his children – twins Monroe and Moroccan, whom he shares with Carey – saying:
“Only Evil operates in this manner. What is the purpose? Except to exemplify pure immoral wickedness. If you report these lies expect a slander and defamation lawsuit.”
Last week, as we also reported, Page 6 published a story that also claimed insiders are concerned over Cannon’s health, citing his recent decision to leave ICM Partners for CAA. Cannon also shared that story on Instagram and responded with:
“Funny how when a man stands up for himself the media fears his mental health!”
