Mariah Carey replaced by Jesus

06 October 2014, 13:17

Los Angeles - Nick Cannon has covered up the Mariah Carey tattoo on his back.

The America's Got Talent presenter, who recently announced he and the #Beautiful hitmaker secretly separated a few months ago, got his estranged wife's first name inked across his shoulders in large letters shortly before they tied the knot in 2008, but recently had it transformed it into an elaborate tattoo of Jesus Christ.

Nick, who has three-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with the 44-year-old singer, debuted his new artwork as he celebrated his upcoming 34th birthday on 8 October with friends, including Amber Rose, at the Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood on Thursday night.

He shared an Instavid of the night's celebrations:

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that his new tattoo shows Jesus Christ on the cross with angel wings coming off the end of the crucifix.

It is not yet known whether Mariah, who got 'Mrs. Cannon' inked on her back before their wedding, plans to change or remove her tattoo.

Nick announced his split from the blonde beauty in August, saying: "There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months. My main focus is my kids."

Friends of the couple previously revealed cracks started to appear in the pair's relationship when Nick admitted during a radio interview in March that he had slept with five famous women, including Kim Kardashian, before meeting Mariah.
