One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Mariah Carey‘s engagement to billionaire boyfriend James Packer did not sit well with her ex-hubby baby-daddy Nick Cannon, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. Despite his happy Instagram posts about her news, insiders said that he flipped out when he first heard.

“He blew up on her when he found out about this, because she was not the one to tell him,” a source close to the 45-year-old “Always Be My Baby” singer told Radar.

“Nick really did think that the only reason that she was with James in the first place was to make him jealous. But now he knows that he is permanently out of the love equation with Mariah.”

Tonight this is how the Cannons turn up!!!

Cannon let his feelings be known when he took to his Instagram after seeing the 35-carat diamond engagement ring that the Australian businessman, who is worth $4.7 billion in compared to 35-year-old Cannon $70 million net worth.

In this snarky post, Cannon wrote: “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove

Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union…#GreatPeople #GreatCouple.”

He didn’t stay mad for long, however. According to the source, “He sent Mariah flowers apologising for his actions. He told her that he really does just want her to be happy.”

But although the father to Carey’s twins Morocco and Monroe, 4 – retreated, the insider told Radar that Packer is not amused.

“James actually seems slightly bothered by her relationship with Nick,” said the source. “He knows that it was not Mariah who put an end to her and Nick’s marriage; it was him. That makes him the last guy to break her heart.”
