Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon ironically fell in love on the set of her “Bye Bye” music video.

In the video, shown above, the songstress is lamenting a lost love.

As far as the possibility of a divorce goes, Cannon dispelled the rumor months ago.

He told Parade:

It’s kind of humorous, really. It couldn’t be further off from the truth, and it really affects the credibility of the so-called newspapers.

In response, Mariah’s publicist told Us Weekly, “I don’t comment on Mariah’s personal life, but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”

On August 28, People reported that Carey was out in Manhattan without her wedding ring.
