Nick Cannon wants Mariah Carey’s Vegas money

Mariah Carey is about to be making major bank for a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and while all that money is rightfully hers because, you know, she’s the one with the talent and the one who’ll be doing the performing. That apparently isn’t stopping her soon-to-be ex-husband, Nick Cannon, from being a money grubber, because he’s demanding a cut of the profits.

Even though the couple already have an prenuptial agreement in place, one source claiming to be in the know insists in the January 2, issue of Star Magazine that is Nick’s mind he figured he was still owed something for all his pain and suffering.

“Nick thinks he deserves a chunk of the money for having to put up with Mariah’s antics for so many years. He’s tempted to keep fighting for more, but he’d rather just get it over with. Nick is beyond ready to move on.”

While Nick certainly hasn’t done anything as vulgar as publicly mention the fact that he thinks some of that money should be his, in a recent chat with the Las Vegas Sun, Cannon did manage to somehow make it sound like the whole thing was his originally his idea.

“I’d been encouraging her for a long time to do a run of Las Vegas shows. She once talked with Steve Wynn about a residency. But she wouldn’t commit. Now, though, she is thrilled about doing them and very excited. They will be fantastic shows. I will be there to support her.”

Stop… just stop. Nick Cannon is a talentless sack of shit who has somehow shown less decency than I originally even expected of him throughout this split. Instead of showing some shred of dignity and maturity, he’s gone on like a child… and that’s putting it mildly. This loser shouldn’t get a penny of Mariah’s cash.

  • Well, it’s funny how men have been having to cough up money in divorces for decades, but when it happens to women, it’s somehow “not right”?

    Depending on their prenuptial agreement (I’m sure they have one), in most cases the higher compensated person in ANY divorce will be forking out HALF to the lower compensated compensated person.

    Welcome, ladies, to divorce court when YOU are the big bread winner.

  • I thought that she signed for this job after the divorce was filed and they had been separated. not that i know all the details because i dont. but i dont think he has any right to money that she is making since the split. he is just being greedy.

  • Has their divorce been finalized? If not, why shouldn’t he be entitled to part of her earnings?

    If the roles were switched, she’d likely be asking for a cut, too. And Chuck is right. There is a double standard when it comes to this.

  • Umm, sorry dude. Make your own damn money. This was signed after he wanted the divorce and filed SOOOO.

    Why don’t you make your money off of Amber Rose? I’m sure she can bring you some extra dividends from the money she makes for appearances.

    Isn’t he her new manager? I’m sure they are also screwing too. Lame.

  • Since he hasn’t been a part of her life for months and was the one cheating he’s got some pair. But keep it up Nick, go into court and fight– you might lose everything that way a-hole.

  • Whoever wrote this article I love you! I agree that Nick shouldn’t get a penny of Mariah’s money. She’s worked so hard for it, but still is unappreciated. Mariah deserves praise.
