Mariah Carey and Brett Ratner Fuel Romance Rumors

Has Mariah Carey moved on with another man?
With Nick Cannon dating model Jessica White on the D.L., his soon-to-be ex-wife spent her birthday weekend in the arms of another man: X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner! In fact, Carey and Ratner were photographed walking arm-in-arm (with another female friend) while shopping in St. Barts.
Carey celebrated her birthday Friday, while Ratner celebrated his 46th birthday Saturday. The friends' joint birthday celebration, in addition to their openly affectionate behavior, has fueled romance rumors.
However, the diva's rep has denied that the two are dating Friday, calling the speculation "ridiculous." In a statement, Carey's rep told People, "They have been best friends for a very long time."
