“It’s Too Hot Out Here to Talk”: Mariah Carey Handles Tough Questions About Nick; Couple Ditch Wedding Rings

With all the rumors swirling about her love life, and Nick Cannon (and his dad…) letting the world know that their marriage is on the rocks and that they’ve been living in separate homes for months, Mariah Carey has been trying to put on a happy face. The singer has been stepping out with her kids, and is focusing most of her attention on them during this tough time.

But she’s also been facing some tough questions from paparazzi, who jump on her the minute she comes out of the house. When confronted earlier this week, the singer did her best to duck and dodge one, covering her face at one point, but the photog aimed question after irksome question at her.

Photog: “Is it true that you split with Nick Cannon? Is there any comment?”

Carey: “I’m sorry sweetie, it’s too hot out here to talk.”

Photog: “You have any comments about the split rumors? I’m so sorry, TMZ is reporting that it’s a done deal. Do you have any comments? Is it true that you split with Nick Cannon? Is there any comment? Do you have any comment? Is there anything we can say?”

Carey: “NO! I never comment.”

Photog: “I’m really sorry…”

I can’t imagine having people follow me around to grill me about the state of my relationship when I’m going through a hard time. Honestly, I can’t imagine folks following me around to grill me on a good day. I see why Kanye acts the way he does…at least, with the paps. I can’t explain the rest of his foolishness…

But something that has been noticed without inquiry from the photogs is the fact that Carey and Cannon have decided to take off their wedding rings. Cannon reportedly was wearing his wedding ring last week while hosting “America’s Got Talent,” but was seen without it all this week. Carey also went out for lunch with her 3-year-old twins in NYC this week, and she was also spotted without her wedding ring. A moving truck was also snapped in front of the couple’s apartment on Wednesday, and Cannon was spotted there earlier in the week.

We’re still hoping these two will be able to smooth things out at their own pace. But until then, the paps will be watching…

“Wild N’ Out” Model Brittany Dailey Denies Being Nick Cannon’s Mistress

  There have been multiple theories floating around about what caused Nick and Mariah’s marriage to crumble and apparently, one of them suggests that Nick had been carrying on an affair with “Wild N’ Out” model Brittany Dailey. She recently decided to dispel the rumors with a couple of tweets.

As it turns out, the rumors surrounding Nick and Brittany began circulating after an anonymous source reached out to Tattle Tailzz claiming to have knowledge of the affair.

“Nick Cannon got his side piece Brittany Dailey a job on his show,” the source alleged. “Nick gave the well known L.A. video vixen Brittany Dailey a job on MTV’s ‘Wild’n’ Out.’ Brittany has been around a few times in the industry from bad boy Chris Brown and NBA baller James Harden.

Nick and Brittany have been creeping for some time now, on set they act like they barely get along but a few co workers know what’s really going on. I can’t believe he is willing to risk so much on so little…He tells Brittany that Mariah gets on his last nerves..and how Mariah makes him feel less than a man.”

Nick has yet to address the reports.

Nick Cannon’s Dad Speaks On Cheating Rumors: ‘Nick Tries Really Hard To Stay Focused’

Over the weekend, we told you that Nick Cannon’s father, James Cannon, shared a questionable and seemingly messy Facebook status that many assumed was about his son and daughter-in-law’s relationship woes.

“Here a thing to talk about if the wife love sex and the man can’t stand making love to her. What should that women do?” he questioned in a post that he later claimed was pulled from his 2011 book, The Calling.

Heres a thing, if the husband say no lies, and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do?

Here a thing, if the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do?

If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she it anyways, what should that man do?

Here a thing, if a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?”

James reportedly spoke to a Page Six source since making the post and he seems to be rooting for Nick and Mariah to work through their issues.

“They need to stick this out,” he reportedly said before adding that they have already spent too much time apart.”Teams of people pulling them separate ways.”

“The love is always going to be there,” he continued. “But they just don’t have that quality of time,” he said. “The last thing Nick will want to do is look back and think the marriage blew up in his face.”

As for rumors that the marriage fell apart because Mariah couldn’t deal with Nick constantly being surrounded by women, James reportedly had this to say:

“Were temptations ever there with other women? Not for Nick, he genuinely loved the married life . . . But did that stop other women coming to him? Probably not.”

“I know Nick tries really hard to stay focused and would say: ‘I’m with the most outstanding, gorgeous woman. I’ve hit the jackpot so why would I be with someone else?’”

He also supposedly claimed that news of the split came as a bit of a surprise to him.

“Everything was beautiful as far as I knew,” James said. “The separation has really caught us off guard.”

He went on:

[Mariah was] “at our home two weeks ago, talking and laughing . . . I’ve never seen them argue.”

“I see Mariah as an angel to our family . . . I never saw [her] as a diva.”

Strangely, he also reportedly told the gossip column that he thinks the marriage would’ve lasted if Nick was more hands on in regard to Mariah’s career.

“If Nick could have somehow ran her business, or worked in conjunction with her, they would have been such a power couple in Hollywood,” he said. “It’s difficult, but look at Beyoncé and Jay Z.”

In other Nick and Mariah news, according to TMZ, the estranged couple reportedly met for dinner last Friday in Tribeca. Sources are claiming that they’re also getting along a lot better since separating. However, insiders add that it’s all for the sake of the children and that there’s no chance for romantic reconciliation.

Mariah Carey Fans Go In On Nick Cannon’s Dad For Messy FB Post

Nick Cannon's Dad

Mariah Carey may no longer be at the pinnacle of her career, but trust and believe her lambs will cut somebody for disrespecting Mimi — or at the very least cuss them all the way out on social media. You’d think Nick Cannon’s daddy would know that by now, after his son was married to the diva for six years, but in his absentmindedness he received a hefty reminder from Mariah Carey fans when he posted a super suspect message on his Facebook page this morning.

According to NecoleBitchie, James Cannon posted the following today:

Here a thing to talk about if the wife love sex and the man can’t stand making love to her. What should that women do?

Heres a thing, if the husband say no lies, and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do?

Here a thing, if the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do?

If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she it anyways, what should that man do?

Here a thing, if a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?

Given Mariah and Nick’s delicate situation, i.e. their pending divorce, you can see why this didn’t go across too well. And perhaps adding insult to injury, after the lambily went all the way in on James, he tried to justify the post by saying he was only asking questions from his 2011 book “The Calling: How to Discover Your Calling in Three Days?” To that I’d have to reply, and you thought asking those questions the week your son announced his divorce from an international superstar was a good idea?

James wrote:

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN ONLY BECAUSE OF THE SMALL MINED PEOPLE THAT MISUNDERSTOOD THE QUESTIONS THAT I POSTED FORM MY BOOK THE CALLING IN WHICH I PUBLISHED IN 2011. BECAUSE A FEW SMALL MINDED PEOPLE MISUNDERSTOOD MY QUESTIONS FROM MY BOOK, AS IF I WAS TALKING ABOUT ANOTHER MAN’S BUSINESS. HERE THE THING, WHEN A MAN OR WOMEN BELONGS TO GOD THEN GOD WILL DEAL WITH THEM, AND HELP THEM.

IN AMERICA WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK QUESTION ABOUT ANYTHING WE WANT. HERES THE THING, SMALL MINDS TALK ABOUT PEOPLE LARGE MINDS TALK ABOUT IDEAS. I AM THE TYPE OF MAN , YES MAN .THAT I DO NOT GET INTO OTHER PEOPLE BUSINESS NOT EVEN MY SONS AND I HAVE 5 OF THEM THAT I LOVE DEARLY. BUT THERE BUSINESS IS THERE BUSINESS AND THERE RELATIONSHIP IS THERE BWTEEN THEM AND GOD.

SO CHECK MY RECORD I STAY OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE BUSINESS, EVEN MY OWN SONS. PLEASE FORGIVE ME TO THOSE THAT MAY HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD MY QUESTION FROM MY BOOK THE CALLING ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS, WITH FATHER AND SON, ABOUT MOTHERS AND THEIR GIRLS AND THE CALLING OF A HUSBAND AND THE CALLING OF A WIFE. READ MY BOOK, IT’S A REALLY, REALLY GOOD BOOK, THAT WILL HELP AND NOT HURT. SO FORGIVE ME AND GOD BLESS.

REMEMBER SMALL MINDS TALK ABOUT PEOPLE LARGE MINDS TALK ABOUT IDEAS. A QUESTION IS JUST THAT A QUESTION, THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED. NO ONES NAME WAS MENTIONED. IF YOU THROW A ROCK INTO A PACK OF DOGS THE ONLY DOG THAT HOLLER IS THE ONE THAT GETS HIT. JC

Mmmkay. You can check out some of the back and forth between James and Mimi’s fans who weren’t buying this excuse on NicoleBitchie.com Do you think Nick Cannon’s dad was being messy or was this an innocent mistake?

Mariah Carey’s Rep Issues Statement On Separation From Nick Cannon, Says Mimi’s Focused On Her Kids And Her Music

We told you yesterday that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s relationship was reportedly on the rocks, and Cannon confirmed the rumors in a statement:

“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.

My main focus is my kids.”

After Cannon spilled the beans about their marital discord, Carey’s rep was forced to respond. The rep issued a short statement to Us Weekly saying that while she can’t speak on the state of Carey’s relationship with Cannon, she can say that the singer is doing fine.

“I don’t comment on Mariah’s personal life,” her rep tells Us, “but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”

Carey announced her Elusive Chanteuse Show earlier this week, and sources tell the New York Daily News that Carey plans to take her 3-year-old twins on the road with her while the couple figure out their next step. The tour kicks off in October and is scheduled to make stops in Tokyo, China, Malaysia, Singapore and the Phillipines.

Sources tell Us that the couple have been living separately since June and while they’ve had issues for a while, “it all came to a head recently.”

The couple met in 2008 and married a month later. They’ve been married for six years.

#DontSayNothing: Mariah Carey Reportedly Silences Nick Cannon With Pre-Divorce Gag Order

Yesterday, we told you that Nick Cannon confirmed what we were all hoping was just a terrible rumor: he and Mariah Carey have separated.

“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months,” he shared. “My main focus is my kids.”

It’s unclear whether or not this is just a trial separation or if the estranged couple has plans to formally end their marriage, but several sources are claiming that a divorce is definitely in the works. In fact, one insider is claiming that things are so real, Nick and Mariah have already worked out a confidentiality agreement. According to TMZ, the agreement is supposedly super one-sided and prohibits Nick from saying anything about the breakup. If he does not comply with the agreement, sources claim that he will face “severe financial penalties.”

The agreement also supposedly gives Mariah the right to announce the breakup on her terms. Nick was allowed to say that they are living apart, but ultimately, the formal breakup announcement will come from Mimi, the source claims. Out of everything that has been reported regarding Nick and Mariah’s split thus far, I find this to be the most believable. Mimi works overtime to keep her dirty laundry out of these streets and Nick clearly has issues when it comes to determining what is appropriate to share and what isn’t.

Nick Cannon Confirms Separation From Mariah Carey: “We Have Been Living In Separate Houses For A Few Months”

We told you earlier today that TMZ reported Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s relationship as being on the outs, and that they already have attorneys working on property settlements and custody agreements. While it’s not 100 percent clear whether or not the couple will really end their marriage of six years, Cannon is now confirming that things between them aren’t well and that at this point, he is just trying to do what’s best for his children, Monroe & Moroccan. This is what he had to say exclusively in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo today:

“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.

My main focus is my kids.”

Cannon reportedly told The Insider that cheating was not the cause for the troubles, as rumors swirled that Mimi hired a security guard to keep an eye on him and make sure he was being faithful (and she did say back in 2011 that she could only trust him “sometimes“). But he didn’t say anything about the effect his past comments about sex with his exes (including Kim Kardashian) and sex with Carey might have had on their relationship. He did say earlier in the year that she wasn’t too crazy about him divulging that information to the public.

“She (Mariah) said to me, ‘Oh yeah, by the way, could you keep your whore-ish past to yourself if you’re doing any interviews?’ I was like, ‘Got you.’”

We’re hoping these two can work things out, especially for the sake of “Dem Babies.”

 

 

Report: Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Divorce A ‘Done Deal’

Yesterday, we told you that there were rumors Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were at odds after Mimi hired a security guard to ensure that her hubby was being faithful.

Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Divorce A 'Done Deal'

Apparently, folks are coming out of the woodwork, volunteering to tell Nick and Mariah’s business because another source is telling TMZ that their divorce is a “done deal.” It’s reported that the two have had their divorce attorneys negotiating for months to map out property settlements and custody agreements.

The source claims that the Hollywood couple and parents to twins Morrocan and Monroe have been living separately since May and that the interview Nick did back in March with Big Boy’s Neighborhood in which he ran down a list of celebrity women that he slept with before his marriage to Mimi, is what contributed to their problems. He also bragged that he “f—ed the s–t out of” his wife on their wedding night.

The insider claims Nick and Mariah fought behind the scenes for weeks regarding his comments, as Mimi felt humiliated. But that’s not the only issue. Apparently, Mariah also felt that Nick abandoned her and their children because he takes any gig that’s offered to him when they really don’t need the money.

As for Nick’s gripe, snitches are insisting that he feels his wife is impossible to get along with because she surrounds herself with “yes men” who only tell her what she wants to hear and that he can’t ever disagree with her because she can’t handle it.

We can only hope that these rumors are false.

I Got One Less Problem Without You: 9 Signs It’s Time To Fire An Employee

Does the saying “all good things must come to an end” apply if you are fed up with someone? Maybe that’s how Mariah Carey felt prompting her to give longtime manager Jermaine Dupri the boot. There are times when the writing is on the wall and we choose not to see it. Here are some signs it’s time to fire an employee — or at the very least mutually part ways. Should you happen to work for someone you might want to take notes so you don’t wind up on the wrong end of a pink slip.

We DON’T Belong Together: Mariah Carey Dismisses Jermaine Dupri As Her Manager After Poor Album Sales

After years of making big hits together, Mariah Carey thought there would be no one better to be her manager than her good friend and collaborator, producer Jermaine Dupri. But after the disappointing sales of her latest album, Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse, and complaints from fans (aka, Lambs) that Dupri wasn’t managing her well after her album was delayed over and over again (it was originally supposed to come out last summer, not this May), it looks like Carey was all wrong. After a bumpier road than expected, the two have decided to call it quits on the managerial front. In a statement to Billboard, Dupri said that he hopes to continue to make music with Carey in the near future, but he does seem to blame their split on her failure to let him do his thing:

“I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”

Carey declined comment, but according to Billboard, she has already moved on in her search for new management, and is interested in Kevin Liles. He is the former president of Def Jam, and according to reports, the two have been working together since June on Carey’s new beverage line (Go N’Syde’s “Butterfly” drink). But the dismissal of Dupri seemed inevitable after the poor sales of the aforementioned album, which according to Billboard, has only sold 103,000 copies since it was released at the end of May.

The 44-year-old singer has gone through quite a few managers over the years (six before Dupri), so either folks just don’t have what it takes to keep Carey on top and are sleeping on the job, or she just might be that hard to work with. Hey, I’m just saying…
