Mariah Carey’s ex, Nick Cannon, has previously expressed his doubt in the authenticity of her newish relationship with long time dancer Brian Tanaka. The singer posted a few new photos of her wearing a Hershey Kisses studded bikini top in a tub full of candy, solo alongside this pic featuring Tanaka. We see big smiles, champagne, muscles and cleavage – it’s can’t all be fake, can it (Nick)?

During a radio interview with Howard Stern, Cannon didn’t hold back when it came to his skepticism (*cynicism?) surrounding his ex wife’s new relationship with 33 year old Tanaka.

“First of all, I think the whole reality show is fake. I’m a producer, so I know how [it works]… I don’t buy non of that s**t.”

Carey, 46, split from Aussie billionaire James Packer in October 2016 before hooking up with Tanaka, a move Cannon thinks is explicitly made for TV. Despite his harsh feelings towards the new romance, Cannon adds,

“I love Mariah. I’ll never stop loving her. She gave me two, amazing beautiful gifts. We talk every day.”

So what do you think? Is this relationship real or made-for-TV?
