A Pitstop On The Information Super Highway

Mariah Carey Engaged and Breaks Record

April 30th, 2008 Posted in Celebrity Gossip

Richard Johnson of the NY Post reported on April 30, 2008 that Mariah Carey’s keeping mum about that ginormous diamond ring she started wearing on her ring finger last week, but a source tells us it’s definitely from her new beau, Nick Cannon – and that the duo are now engaged.

Cannon bought the bauble for $2.5 million at Jacob & Co. on East 57th Street, where he was spotted again yesterday. “Maybe he’s making payments on it,” laughed our witness, who overheard Cannon telling Jacob Arabo they are set to marry. Carey’s new bling is 17 carats, with a whopping 10-carat center stone, and made of rare pink and purple diamonds. Cannon was also once engaged to Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks.

In related Mariah news,? Carey’s latest album, E=MC2, which features the tracks Migrate, I?m That Chick, Side Effects and I Stay In Love, debuted on top of the Billboard 200 last week. In addition to having the highest first week sales of 2008, Mariah also broke her personal first-week sales record.
