Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married?

Tbdmariahcarey050208 There's been all sorts of rumors about Mariah Carey being engaged to Nick Cannon, what with Mimi strutting around the Tribeca Film Festival with the rock that sunk the Titanic strapped to her left hand. Access Hollywood even reported it had (unnamed) confirmation that yes, the two are now linked in the throes of a celebrity engagement.

But now Latina magazine says via its Web site that the two got married on an island yesterday in a "very impulsive" ceremony. We'll have to see if that's true, but the mag says a few close friends (like Da Brat) were there.

What we find interesting are digital whispers that the ring is the same one the 27-year-old Cannon gave Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks when they got engaged in 2007 (they broke it off the same year).

But then, Mariah (who's 11 years older than Nick, by the way) has so much dosh she probably sleeps on a pile of emeralds and rubies, so this may be some old throwaway she picked up on a whim. Either way, we're left wondering how Nick pulls superstars like Mariah Carey and Selita Ebanks. He should write a book.
