I don’t care if you like her or not – in the battle of Mariah Carey vs. Nick Cannon, Mariah is clearly the victor. Nick wants to trot around acting like a child, threatening to release a book of his soon-to-be ex-wife’s “secrets” in order to gain money that he can’t earn himself and she won’t give him for free. What’s Mariah doing? She’s putting out the ultimate diss track. It’s called ‘Infinity’ and it’s about to become your ultimate jam.
With lines like “Boy, you corny like Fritos / Wouldn’t have none of that without me, though” basically make my life. Then there’s this little gem:
Is it lack of ice got you so cold? Have you ever felt this on your own? Why you tryin’ to play like you’re so grown? Everything you own boy you still owe
Things haven’t been all that kosher between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon lately – in fact, it seems to be getting nasty, with Nick threatening to write a tell-all book about Mariah’s secret life unless she gets out the checkbook and writes him one to the tune of $30 million. But it seems they were able to put their differences aside long enough to be civil for the sake of their kids on Easter.
Monroe and Moroccan are still little and the Easter bunny is an important thing in their lives, as are Easter egg hunts and candy. I’m not sure where this event was being held or why Moroccan seems to have only one part of Buzz Lightyear’s costume, but let’s just go with it. Parenting!
Mariah even hit up the kitchen this weekend to make some gluten-free Easter lasagna, as you do, and some adorable cupcakes!
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey split up last year, and it hasn’t necessarily been amicable. Nick’s been trying to siphon money out of Mariah any way he can, Mariah wants no part of his fuckery and the whole thing is a mess. But since Nick isn’t really banking it as the host of the ridiculous America’s Got Talent and Mariah’s not loosening her purse strings, he’s had to come up with another way to bring home the bacon, and that apparently means writing a tell-all about their marriage.
Mariah Carey rejected Nick Cannon’s numerous demands for a $30 million divorce settlement, so he is now writing a tell-all book about the secrets of their marriage. Daily Mail writes, “He plans to get his payday for being married to her one way or another.”
“Mariah was willing to give Nick $10 million but he said ‘hell no’ and demanded $30,” said a family friend. But Nick insists he deserves more, even though the two signed a prenuptial agreement.
Nick has already signed a deal with major publishing company Simon and Schuster.
“Nick says he is going to tell the world about Mariah’s drug use, her strange eating habits, psychosis, what she has said about other artists, her sexual proclivities and her parenting skills. It which will really be hurtful,” the insider continued. “And Nick is also going to explain why he thinks he should have full custody of the twins. Mariah has admitted she never wanted children and Nick is going to tell the world why she felt that way. (lies!) If Nick was not willing to spill all of their nasty and salacious secrets he would not have gotten a book deal. So obviously, Simon and Schuster feel this is going to be a blockbuster and they signed him up.”
Keep it classy, Nick Cannon. Nothing says dignity like trying to cash in while simultaneously trying to embarrass the person you once claimed to love. Not to mention he’s trying to make a case for why he should have custody of the twins when… he’s the one being publicly quite nasty about their split. A man like that should NOT be raising children, and I feel bad for those kids because they’ll have to grow up with a scumbag father who was intent on taking down their mother. What a piece of shit.
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.
The timing is interesting. We found out Nick filed papers December 12. The date is relevant because on December 3, Mariah showed up 3 hours late to tape a segment for the NBC tree-lighting special.
At the time we posted a story… Mariah was on the phone with her lawyers going over the terms of her property settlement. That syncs up with Nick filing papers a week later, after they hashed out a deal.
Huh, I wonder if they actually spent Christmas apart, like Mariah wanted? Who knows. Either way, this divorce is for the best – these two are NOT well suited in the slightest… obviously. Good riddance.
Oh, and if you wanted to know how much of a scumbag Nick Cannon is, check out this song he did about how he “made Mariah hit the high notes”. Uh… no. Gross.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon decided to end their marriage earlier this year, and it’s safe to say that it hasn’t been an altogether peaceful split. There’s clearly a lot of resentment between them, but they’ve been trying to keep the peace for the sake of their young children. While they initially planned to spend Christmas together, now it seems Mariah wants to cancel those plans.
“The original plan had been for the whole family to spend Christmas together in Colorado,” a source told us. “However, Mariah has now asked Nick not to come.”
“It’s based on a few things,” the source explained. “For starters, they spent Thanksgiving together and fought behind the scenes. How is it healthy for the kids if both parents are technically in the same place but fighting?”
Our insider added that Carey is also feeling particular sensitive over the recent criticism over her Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting performance and some of the stops on the Asian leg of her Elusive Chanteuse World Tour.
“She holds him partially responsible for the bad press her recent performances have gotten,” the source said. “She’s been so stressed over the split—with the fighting and crying—it’s definitely affected her state of mind, her head, her voice and her stage presence. It’s rattled her.”
LOL, well, it’s not really Nick’s fault that your voice was a hot mess, but alright, girl, I’m going to let you rock with that. I do agree that if they’re just going to fight, they might as well stay apart. Merry Christmas, anyway!
Mariah Carey has only been separated from Nick Cannon for a few months now (that we know of), but she’s already ready to move on – makes sense, especially if her hints about his cheating ways are at all true. So how will she find her next partner/short-term fling? Well, she’s hoping Naswill help her!
The pop diva “texted Nas, wondering if he had any friends she could go out with — or even just hook up with,” the insider says. “But Nas is nervous to introduce her to anyone.”
Carey and the hip-hop star have been friends for years, and even collaborated on the song “Dedicated,” the third track on her not-so-successful 2014 album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. Rumors swirled in 2013 that the two were getting a little too close, but Cannon himself shut them down during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this year.
“[Nas is] a friend of mine, he’s a friend of hers,” the America’s Got Talent host said in April, pre-split. “She went to his birthday party, and I think it was in L.A. We actually talked about this before. It’d be very difficult to make me jealous.”
No one cares, Nick Cannon. It’s good that you were secure in your marriage while it was happening – but then if you were the one being unfaithful, I suppose you would be.
In any case, you wouldn’t think Mariah would need help meeting someone new, but asking Nas is so random. Whatever – get yours, girl!
