Well, you’ve got to give them credit – Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon‘s marriage did last six years longer than I expected it to (hint: they’ve been married for six years). However, now the jig is up and following revelations that they’ve been living apart for months, it seems they’re actually getting a divorce. Oh, and Mariah’s already made sure that Nick can’t flap his gums about a single word of it.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ … Nick and Mariah’s lawyers hashed out a confidentiality agreement as part of their divorce … and it’s completely one-sided.
Nick is barred from saying anything about the split. If he does, there are severe financial penalties. But Mariah has the right under the agreement to announce the split on her terms.
Nick is clearly following orders … check out the video from NYC Thursday — he zipped it.
Nick is allowed to say they’re now living separately … which he’s already done. But he cannot say anything about the divorce.
Damn, that’s rough – but maybe for good reason. After all, why does any of this need to be discussed in detail publicly? Can’t the details of their relationship be just that – THEIR relationship, i.e. private?
Ah well, can’t win ‘em all. I’m sure the kids will be just fine and well taken care of, so long as this shit doesn’t get ugly, and I hope it won’t.

Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri may have been friends for years and may even have made some pretty good songs together in the past. However, it seems his management skills leave something to be desired in Mimi’s world, because Jermaine’s out of a job less than a year after he started it. Oops!
From The San Francisco Gate:
A statement released by Dupri reads: “I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”
Carey hired Dupri in the middle of production of her 14th studio album, “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse,” which she had been working on for the past two years.
The record was finally released in May, but had a disappointing debut in the U.S. selling just 58,000 copies in the first week.
Carey had previously been managed by music veteran and former “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson
She has now reportedly hired Def Jam Recordings president Kevin Liles, who also manages Jay Z and Ludacris, to oversee her career, according to Billboard Magazine.
Oh, dear. I mean, look – Jermaine Dupri hasn’t been relevant since the late ’90s, so I don’t know what she was thinking hiring him to begin with. Apparently he had some homes in foreclosure and was tight on money, so maybe she was just being generous?
Whoever she gets on board next, I hope they’re good because I don’t want to see Queen Mariah go down like that. Also, I can’t remember – has Jermaine always had a face like a smacked ass or is that a recent development?

Notorious pervert Terry Richardson is known for his point-and-shoot photography style, but that just won’t cut it when it comes to ultimate diva Mariah Carey, who will not allow unretouched photos of herself out in the wild.
Of course, Jezebel got a hold of the originals and the Photoshopped versions of her latest shoot with Terry and have pointed out just how much work has been done on them. It seems sorta obvious – of COURSE photos are retouched within an inch of their lives, especially if you’re working with really big stars. These don’t look too shocking, but check out some more behind the cut.
