Mariah Carey is set to say ‘I do’ to James Packer, but there’s one thing keeping her from walking down the aisle. Nick Cannon reportedly refuses to sign their divorce papers!
Nick Cannon, 35, reportedly won’t sign his divorce papers, leaving him still legally married to Mariah Carey, 46, according to TMZ. Though the couple separated in August 2014, Nick is stalling in making their split official, and that’s making it impossible for Mariah to marry fiancé James Packer, 48! So why is Nick refusing to sign the papers?
Nick won’t actually tell Mariah why he’s not signing the divorce papers, but a source told TMZ that it’s because he still has major feelings for his estranged wife and won’t let go! The fact that she’s due to get married to new fiancé James is supposedly too much for Nick, and he doesn’t want to sign the papers to make it possible for Mariah to officially move on!
At the beginning of their divorce proceedings, Nick and Mariah had issues to work out before moving forward. Mainly, the former couple had to agree on a custody arrangement for their twins, Moroccan and Monroe, 5, and figure out a property settlement. This stuff is hard when you’re as rich as Nick and Mariah! But now that that’s all been resolved, and so long ago, it’s interesting to find out that Nick still allegedly won’t complete the divorce! Meanwhile, Mariah is sporting an enormous, 35 carat, $10 million ring from her Australian billionaire fiancé!
Unsurprisingly, Mariah is not pleased with Nick’s move, according to TMZ’s source. And can you blame her? She’s got a fairytale wedding to plan and a new man who she wants to spend the rest of her life with! That can’t happen until Nick lets go for once and for all.
So was Nick just hiding his true feelings in January 2016 when he congratulated Mariah on her engagement? Someone posted a hilarious meme showing Nick lying in a hospital bed, having a heart attack over the engagement news, and he commented that while it was funny, he was thrilled for the couple: “#AllLove. Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.” So sweet! But it looks like Nick was just trying to make it seem like he wasn’t hurt! When will he grant Mariah her divorce so she can start that future union?
