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.
