Mariah Carey’s ex-husband Nick Cannon makes homophobic diss track about Eminem, who hits back by calling him a ‘bougie f***’

Nick Cannon and Eminem

While Mariah Carey is busy single-handedly saving Christmas, her ex-husband Nick Cannon is clinging on to relevancy by accusing Eminem of performing oral sex on another man.

“I heard your chauffeur got a video of you sucking a c*ck,” Cannon raps on his song, ‘The Invitation’.

“You paid him off then laid him off / Now who really the opps.”

After the song’s release, Cannon said that his lyrics were based on “facts,” and that Eminem’s lawyers “didn’t want that one out.”

In response, Eminem said that he couldn’t have performed the act because he “never even had a chauffeur, you bougie f***”.

“U mad bro? Stop lying on my d*ck,” he tweeted, and later joked: “I demand an apology Nicholas, you’ve made my gardener so jealous!”

The Wild ‘N Out host released the diss track after Eminem targeted him and his ex-wife Carey on a recent single.

On ‘Lord Above’, the ‘Slim Shady’ star raps: “I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note/But that other dudes whipped/That p*ssy got him neutered.”

He continues that he “tried to tell him his chick’s a nut job before he got his jewel’s clipped,” adding: “I’d let her chop my balls off too before I lost to you Nick.”

Eminem – who himself has a history of homophobic lyrics – has maintained for years that he dated Carey, but the singer has always denied this.

He first alluded to a relationship on his 2002 album The Eminem Show.

At the time Carey hit back, telling Larry King: “I hung out with him, I spoke to him on the phone. I think I was probably with him a total of four times. And I don’t consider that dating somebody.”

She appeared to sing about the drama on ‘Clown’, taken from 2002’s Charmbracelet.

The song includes the lyrics: “You should’ve never intimated we were lovers/When you know very well we never even touched each other.”​

In response, Eminem played what he said were voicemail recordings of Carey during his 2005 Anger Management Tour, and name-checked her on ‘Jimmy Crack Corn’ (2007) and ‘Bagpipes from Baghdad’ (2009).

Carey appeared to take swipes at Eminem again in her 2009 single ‘Obsessed’, which prompted another final (at the time) diss from Eminem before he – and we – lost interest.
