Nick CannonRapper/actor Nick Cannon has accused Los Angeles police of racial profiling after his car was pulled over in the early hours of Thursday.

Mariah Carey's husband took to his blog to complain about the run-in, insisting he's constantly stopped by cops because he's always driving a luxury car.

The America's Got Talent host reveals he was let off with a warning about an unknown violation - but he claims that's not usually the case.

In a series of posts on, he writes, "Just got pulled over again. For the 1st time ever... The Cop let me go! He was a black man! 'Preciate it Brotha (sic)!!
"Growing up, I never liked Cops. Always felt they were bullies... At age 13 a Cop pulled me over on my bike with his gun drawn. What the hell did he think I was going to do?!

"Now in LA I get pulled over like once a week. Honestly, I think it's because I'm a Black man in a nice car."
