Mariah Carey sparked rumours she is engaged to rapper Nick Cannon after she was seen wearing a huge diamond ring.
The 'Touch My Body' singer was sporting the impressive rock at the after-party for her new film 'Tennessee' at New York's Tenjune nightclub on Saturday night (26.04.08), where she held hands with the actor-and-singer.
An onlooker said: "Mariah and Nick looked really cosy. They were cuddling and made sure they held hands all night. Mariah looked really proud to there with Nick, and he seemed to be having a great time."
However, Nick - who, at 27, is 12 years younger than Mariah - refused to comment on any possible engagement, and would only say the 38-year-old singer is "a great person".
He added to MTV: "I can't even know what to say. She's probably the most festive, remarkable person I've ever met. She is a good friend. But rumours happen."
Mariah - who split from her record executive husband Tommy Mottola in 1997 - was rumoured to be dating Mark Sudack, a member of her management team, before she was first seen out with Nick in Las Vegas on April 15.
