Nick Cannon Gives Out Number On Air

Although he’s known for his pranks, Nick Cannon may have taken things a step too far Thursday when he stunned listeners of his WXRK radio show and gave out his home telephone number.

Cannon, who hosts a New York based drive –time radio show, was on-air yesterday when he spontaneously blurted out his home number.

He then took to Twitter to share the news and added that a lucky fan talked to his pregnant wife Mariah Carey before an avalanche of phone calls came in.

“My wife is going to kill me over this,” he tweeted. “Just gave out my home phone number on air and my pregnant wife picked up the line oops!”

After receiving backlash over the stunt, he added,

”Home phone numbers are just like Twitter anyway. I use this more than I use my home phone. So what’s the big deal? Think my wife will be mad at me? Lol (laugh out loud)… I don’t care. I’m the man!!

Although Cannon shook it off as no big deal, his wife Mariah was obviously not happy and he later posted,

Sometimes I get a little too carried away on the radio…Thanks to my amazing wife for being a good sport and allowing me to make good radio. Mariah Carey you are the best.”

No word on if the Cannon’s had their number changed.
