Oh, Nick Cannon, we should have known you’d be the kind of guy to get off on a big April Fool’s joke. Cannon fled NY’s 92.3 Now mid-show this morning, announcing “Real talk, I gotta go, my wife!” after taking a phone call, with the station then tweeting “this could be the BIG DAY!!!” Perez Hilton, a regular call-in guest, was told about the hubbub, and quickly posted an exclusive that Mariah was in labor. Cannon’s co-worker Nikki Hesse even said on air “We just spoke to him on the phone. He’s going to airport right now bc (because) she’s in L.A… Confirming news from Nick Cannon… It’s time!! He’s on the way to (the) airport. He is keeping us updated throughout the rest of show. Stay tuned for an update.”
That update did eventually come, on Nick Cannon’s Twitter. “Just pulled the best April Fools’ prank on my radio show 92.3 Now FM. Got to take most of the morning off! LOL Sorry… April Fools.” Needless to say, Perez was pretty pissed, changing the headline “Mariah Carey In Labor” to “Nick Cannon is lame.” Maybe Nick will make it up to him by having Perez be the godfather.
