Nick Cannon talked about his ‘little sis’ Amanda Bynes during an interview with E! News, updating fans on the actress’ condition. As you may remember, no less than five years ago, Mariah Carey’s former husband made sure to show support towards Amanda by writing a very touching open letter.
‘As of recently, I haven’t [spoken to her], but I heard she’s doing so much better. People, when they’re dealing with personal issues, sometimes you gotta give them their space, and then when they reach out, that’s the time to do it,’ Nick told the outlet.
The two co-starred on All That from 1998 to 2002, and it looks like they developed a longtime bond.
The former child star has been out of the spotlight for years due to some issues with addiction.
‘It’s always an open invite whenever she needs anything, career or even personally. I’m here,’ Cannon went on.
‘We were trying to get her on Wild ‘N Out. We had the All That reunion, and that’s kind of when I knew, like, ‘OK, she’s still working on herself,’ which is an outstanding thing. But, you know, she’s always welcome. That’s little sis right there.’ Aww….so sweet!
Thinking back to the show, and realizing it’s been two decades since he starred on All That, Nick Cannon joked that he feels old.
‘It’s a legacy, and to be a part of that generation, I mean, I grew up on that show as well, and then that was a dream come true for me, to be a part of it. I wasn’t just in front of the camera, but writing and doing a warmup. Like, I grew up with them, and you know, it’s like a whole reunion thing, and as much as we can, we try to get together and make that magic happen,’ he dished.
