And the Mariah Carey-Nick Cannon news train barrels along. It seems like each day this week brings us new updates and insight into the reported divorce proceedings between the spouses of six years. Just yesterday, we received confirmation from Mariah’s hubby himself that they have been living apart for a few months, and now we’re finding out that the songstress has supposedly slammed her man with a gag order!
According to a TMZ source, the couple’s lawyers have set up a confidentiality agreement as part of their divorce, which is said to strongly favor Mariah. The site's insider claims that the docs block Nick from saying anything about their breakup, else he risks “severe financial penalties.” However, his superstar wife is granted the right to to announce their split however she may choose. Oh Mimi, even in the midst of a divorce, you’re still the Queen Diva.
If you are wondering if that disclosure Nick made yesterday — revealing that the pair is living apart — was a breach of their contract, the site says it was not… though Mariah is reportedly not happy about it. While the America’s Got Talent host is only barred from talking divorce details, an E! News insider says that "Mariah was devastated about the comments Nick made.” Apparently, the couple had planned to release a joint statement that being prepped when Nick went off-script.
“He was not supposed to say a word," the source states. “She thinks it was extremely childish, impulsive, and opportunistic ... For her, it was the last straw. She's done with him now."
And while things may be getting ugly behind the scenes, the “#Beautiful” singer has kept silent on her end, only releasing a simple statement through her team.
"I don't comment on Mariah's personal life, but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour," Mariah’s rep said in a statement to Us Weekly on August 22. Well, that’s some relief. After all, it’s #DemBabies, the Cannons’ 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, that we’re all really worried about, right?
