Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey’s Divorce War: How Nick Is Getting Ready
“All he’s really after is the safety net for the children and to walk away with what he brought into the marriage and half of what they earned together as a married couple,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“She wants it all, even what they made together and Nick’s not having that. So, he’s prepared for the battle.”
Nick announced their split on Aug. 21 to The Insider and acknowledged that he and Mariah had been living separately for months. Now that the couple seems to be heading for a divorce, our source tells us that the split is “really hard for them, especially their twins [Moroccan and Monroe] who Nick wants to be with everyday of his life.”
Mariah’s rep told Us Weekly, “I don’t comment on Mariah’s personal life,” her rep said, “but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”
Major components in the couple’s split were distance and “back-and-forth” fighting. HollywoodLife.com previously reported that the “arguing and stupid fights about bullsh*t just got to the both of them” and “they both didn’t want to live under the same roof if they’d be fighting.”
Although a report of Nick’s infidelity recently swirled about the couple, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Nick “never cheated on her.”
“He chased her for years and when he finally got her, he couldn’t believe it. He really was floored that Mariah gave him a shot.”
Our source also revealed that Nick “loves her” and “always will, because she was his everything and he had the world’s biggest crush on her.”
Let’s hope that Nick and Mariah will keep things amicable if they do end up divorcing.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Nick and Mariah will have a nasty divorce battle? Will it be amicable? Do you think there’s still a chance they will reunite for the kids? Let us know!
