Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon announced their separation after six years of marriage, and now a new report has surfaced that the two have a confidentiality agreement that bans Nick from talking about their divorce!
Are Nick Cannon, 33, and Mariah Carey, 44, headed for a huge divorce battle? A new report claims that the former couple has already worked out a confidentiality agreement that bans Nick from discussing the divorce, and if he breaks the agreement, there will be major financial repercussions! Read below for all the details!
Mariah Carey Divorce Nick Cannon
Jaws dropped all over when Nick announced to The Insider on Aug. 21, that the couple of six years were separating. He revealed, “There is trouble in paradise, we have been living in separate houses for a few months.” He also said that the duo’s main focus right now, is on their adorable 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
It seems that things may be a bit more serious than just a bit of trouble. A source told 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,” the source said. “If he does, there are severe financial penalties. But Mariah has the right under the agreement to announce the split on her terms.
The site had previously stated that their divorce was “a done deal.” A source told the site, “Mariah feels Nick has abandoned her by taking every gig that’s on the table … when they don’t need the money. She’s especially angry because it keeps him away from their kids.”
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.”
While the duo sort things out, HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively that Nick,“loves her,” says our source, and “always will, because she was his everything and he had the world’s biggest crush on her.”
Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon: Inside Their Fights
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Mariah did not like the amount of time that Nick was putting into his work. A source told us exclusively, “It’s not about the money for him — never was and never will be. He likes what he does. He likes working, it makes him happy and for the life of him he can’t understand why Mariah […] doesn’t appreciate that in him.”
The fighting went on for months.“They both didn’t want to live under the same roof if they’d be fighting,” a source revealed. “They didn’t want the staff to know and of course they kept that away from the kids.”
Our source revealed that their fights only continued to get worse.“It got to a point where they wouldn’t agree on anything and Nick would always give into her demands. But the fighting and bickering drove them apart.”
