According to recent Hollywood celebrity gossip, NICK CANNON has admitted that he broke up with KIM KARDASHIAN (during their brief relationship in 2006) because of her sex tape with ex-boyfriend RAY J.

Not a lot of people know this, but back then, before Kim married NBA player Kris Humphries in an extravagant wedding and then divorced him 72 days later, and before Nick Cannon got married and had super adorable kids with Mariah Carey, the “Drumline” star and the reality TV socialite (and sex tape star) were actually an item.

During a recent interview with Howard Stern, Cannon confirmed the brief fling, and then explained why it ended.

He shared:

“We talked about this tape … and she told me there was no tape. If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like ‘That was before me,’ because she is a great girl.”

Mr. Mariah Carey continued:

“She’s actually one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet… But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?”

Nick also revealed that he suspected that Kim had a hand in the release of her sex tape… something that everyone has been wondering about for years. He said:

“And I still think she might have even had a part to play with [its release]… I think she’s a great businesswoman if you ask me.”

Do you think Nick was right to break up with Kim?
