9Divorce Watch: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon?

Remember when Nick Cannon was dealing with all those health issues, and then he said that he had “like a lupus type of thing”? Well, it turns out that he actually does have lupus. He’s been dealing with lupus nephritis, which, as far as I can tell, is a complication of, um, regular lupus, and it affects the kidneys, natch. Obviously, I don’t know a whole lot about it, but it sounds pretty serious, and it probably means that Nick needs to slow down a bit and take some time to attend to his health, which is sounds like he’s trying to do.

You know what else it probably means? It probably means that Mariah Carey needs to be supportive and caring and, you know, not threaten to leave him:

The rumor mill is on overdrive, and it’s saying that Mariah Carey is threatening her husband Nick Cannon with divorce if he doesn’t slow down and take time to focus on his health.

Nick has been hospitalized multiple times this year due to lupus nephritis, a rare form of lupus that attacks the kidneys

Mimi is so concerned over Nick’s condition that we hear she is threatening to leave Nick and take their twins Moroccan and Monroe with her!

“He thinks Mariah is overreacting and blowing everything out of proportion,” revealed an insider. “Besides that, Nick is insecure about living in Mariah’s shadow, and if he quit work altogether he feels like he’d have no identity of his own.

Nick has tried to comply and quit his “CBS Radio” show, but he’s refusing to give up other work commitments, including hosting “America’s Got Talent” and his weekly “Cannon’s Countdown” syndicated radio program.

“He hates being known as Mr. Mariah Carey.” Said the source: “Nick’s work is his passion, but he doesn’t want to lose his wife and his kids — or his life!”

I can’t tell if I think this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard or not. On one hand, I think Mariah truly loves Nick so, so much, and I really don’t ever see these two splitting up. On the other hand, I could maybe see that all these health problems are seriously scaring Mariah, and that she would be up for trying absolutely anything to get Nick to just slow down and focus on his health. Either way, I’m going to go ahead and say that these two are in it for the long haul. This rumor could be true, but nothing is going to come of it.

What do you guys think about it?

    I thought it was really weird when they first got together, and I still don’t really understand the dynamic of their relationship, but for whatever reason they have totally grown on me, and I really hope they’re not in trouble!

    your on a computer and lupus is a 5 letter word. why could you not just google lupus? http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/info/lupus/

      *You’re

      If you’re going to complain about someone not Googling something, at least spell check. And capitalize. It’s even less time consuming than searching for something on the internet.

    I can’t stand guys who think their wife being more successful than them is somehow a threat to their virility.

    • Harriet Meadow says:

      Me too. Although I can’t imagine Nick Cannon is one of them. I mean, she’s always been more successful than him – it’s not like anything has changed on that account! Did he suddenly realize after however many years together that he has a problem with it? I don’t buy it.

  4. I love Mariah & Nick Cannon together. I certainly hope they don’t divorce because of the committment and their children.
    Nick, you’ve got to slow down money isn’t everything and your
    health is most important!! I think Mariah wouldn’t and shouldn’t have a problem with that. Mariah was very popular before marriage and still is so don’t try and compete with that. She loves you and you gave her two beautiful children. Whatever the problem is take 5 and work it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Missy says:

    Very sweet. She loves him and he’s good for her. She wants him to slow down they have more money than god but I understand that as a man, he does not want to live off his wife. Good luck to them. BTW, did you know that 1 in 250 women of the African diaspora have Lupus? And that the other highest group are Sicilian-Italians (like Lady Gaga)? I think it might be a black genetic disease passed down. For sure if it’s in your family you should be tested.
