Mariah Carey may be happy with new boyfriend James Packer, but she’s not the only one with a new partner these days! Nick Cannon is also dating someone new—and she strongly resembles his estranged wife!
The America’s Got Talent co-host is hooking up with former contestant Samantha Johnson, who looks like a younger version of Mariah!
“Nick obsesses over how much she resembles his ex,” a source tells Star magazine. And the main feature they have in common? Their smile.
“He’s gotten a kick out of comparing their smiles,” the source continues. And apparently this is just news to fans, as those on set could tell Nick and Samantha were an item, though they tried to keep things professional during work hours. “Everyone knew they were hooking up,” the insider reveals.
Meanwhile, Mariah has definitely not been trying to keep her new romance under wraps, even speaking out about James this week, telling Entertainment Tonight, “It’s fun, I’m not gonna lie.”
