AceShowbiz - Kel Mitchell's ex has dropped a shocking bombshell on Nick Cannon. Having publicly said that he owes to the "Kenan & Kel" star for helping him with his career, the multi-talented star once cross-dressed for his famous friend, according to Kel's ex-wife Tyisha Hampton.
Tyisha made the allegation in a TikTok video, casually revealing that she caught Mariah Carey's ex-husband wearing her cheerleader uniform at her home. She said "The Masked Singer" host did it to cheer Kel up after the latter cheated on Tyisha.
"Remembering when I came home early to #NickCannon wearing my full cheerleading uniform (including the briefs) doing cheers on the bed for my ex husband #kelmitchell to cheer him up, because he cheated on me!" she wrote over the clip. "You can definitely be blinded by love," she added.
But instead of clowning Nick for his alleged antics, people criticized Tyisha for exposing the "Gigolo" singer. "What was the point of her bringing this up?" one user wrote in the comments. "But you were good with it until now," added another person.
Tyisha also insinuated that Kel was an absentee father in another TikTok video. The former spouses, who were married from 1999 until 2005, share two now-adult children, son Lyric, 21, and daughter Allure, 19.
Kel went on to marry rapper Asia Lee in February 2012. They have two children together, daughter Wisdom, 4, and son Honor, 1.
As for Kel's close relationship with Nick, the latter previously opened up about how the former "All That" star helped take his career to what it is today. "You and [Kenan Thompson] gave me the opportunity to write episodes and stuff. I was the audience warm-up, just like Chad over there," he recalled on his daytime show last year. "At 16, I would drive up in my mama's old car. Kel would let me sleep in his apartment sometimes and hang out."
"You and Kenan just opened your doors to me and really saw me as family, man. If I haven't said thank you enough, I'll say it again," Nick added. "You inspired a generation man, all of these kids on TikTok...you guys created comedy for young people."
