Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s legal struggles just keep piling up. In addition to their impending divorce and Mimi being sued by a former employee, the estranged couple is also facing a lawsuit from their ex-nanny.

According to TMZ, Simonette DaCosta, who says that she worked as a full-time nanny for the Cannons, is alleging that she was terminated for showing their twins Moroccan and Monroe too much affection. In the suit, DaCosta explains that she cared for the children when they were infants by feeding, bathing and comforting them; however, Mimi became upset over how close she was with the children.

As time went on, the plaintiff alleges that Mariah began berating her for showing the children too much love. Prior to being fired, DaCosta says that she put in plenty of overtime, adding that she sometimes worked 100-hour weeks. As a result, she’s requesting both damages and back pay. Interestingly, Mariah’s former assistant, who is also suing her, makes similar complaints in her lawsuit. Ysler Oliver alleged in her 2014 lawsuit that she frequently worked 16-hour days, but never received a dime in overtime pay.

Neither Mariah nor Nick has publicly acknowledged the suit.

She knows exactly what she’s doing.  Amber Rose is getting her 2015 started off with a bang after recently setting the internet on fire posting pics of her scantily clad post-baby body. She recently caused another uproar after posting two curvaceous bodies on her Instagram: matching Ferraris belonging to her and her NCredible manager, Nick Cannon.

The posts of course re-ignited rumors that the two are an item which Amber decided to quickly squash:

“Shout out to my Amazing Manager @nickcannon!  I know the world wants us to be together sooo badly (Sarcasm) but it’s just not our relationship.  Every time I post a pic of me and this Man yall start reaching…We are friends and business partners nothing more. We have beautiful children and ppl we still love very much no matter what. I don’t know how many times I need to say this but this will be my last time.  WE ARE JUST FRIENDS!!!! OK [expletive]? I usually don’t even comment on dumb made up stories but ur gonna see a lot of us together cuz we’re getting this Shmoney….Cuz he’s my manager! Duh.  So fall the [expletive] back and chill the [expletive] out- Muva [kissy emoji].”

You’ve got to love how Amber handles all this shade with such class. And she clearly doesn’t want Mariah to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee on her behind, making it abundantly clear that they both still love their exes.

It seems that this business collaboration seems to be working well for the both of them. In addition to clothing line, “Rose and Ono”, Rose also stars in the 2014 film School Dance directed by Cannon.

Yesterday, we reported Nick Cannon officially filed for divorce from Mariah Carey.

Now, new details surrounding their prenup are surfacing. According to TMZ, if either one of them disclose the details of their marriage, they will have to pay a hefty bill. If Mariah shares the details of their marriage, she will have to pay Nick $500,000! As for Nick, he will have to pay $200,000.

Why the big price difference? Well according to the mean streets of TMZ, Mariah came into the marriage worth more than $150 million (Can we borrow a Dollar MiMi?) and Nick came in with only $500,000.

The reports are also claiming Nick took out a $470K loan to pay off Mimi’s ring. It was not worth the $2.5 Million we thought.

The two have already figured out a property settlement.

Over the summer, many of us were shocked to hear whispers about the separation between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. But what started out as a rumor was soon proven to be factual when the actor had his infamous “Mariah” tattoo covered. After months of wondering whether or not the estranged couple would find a way to work through their differences, we’re sad to report that Nick Cannon has formally filed for divorce.

According to TMZ, the papers were filed on December 12. It’s unclear whether or not Mariah has responded to his filing yet, but according to some who claim to have knowledge of the split; the two have been hammering out the details of the divorce with their lawyers for quite some time now.

It’s also interesting to note that just a few weeks ago, Nick lashed out over reports that he’s in the process of recording an entire diss album dedicated to his ex-wife.

“I will never say anything negative about Mariah Carey,’ he tweeted. ‘We are forever a family rooted in love.”

And while Nick has been doing most of the talking, Mariah hasn’t publicly uttered a word about the split. We were hoping that they would be able to find a way to work things out, but hopefully this divorce will mean a fresh start for the both of them.

Speaking of divorce, Nick Cannon is pretty upset about some wild rumors floating around pertaining to he and his estranged wife, Mariah Carey.

Apparently, rumors about Nick putting together a diss album (Yes, I know how foolish that sounds) about Mariah have been circulating. On Twitter last night, the actor/rapper angrily addressed the whispers.

The rumors first began circulating after “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” star Mally Mall spoke to TMZ and said that he was working with Nick on the album.

“He’s talking about Mariah on the records,” said Mally. “There’s going to be a lot of controversy.”

Well then….

Nick Cannon dating rumors have been swirling ever since it was first confirmed that he and wife, Mariah Carey, would be ending their six-year marriage. The rumor mill has linked him to both Amber Rose, who is also currently going through a divorce, and “Wild N’ Out” model Brittany Dailey. However, the father of two insists that he’s nowhere near ready to begin dating again.

“I’m dating no one. I’m not even ready for that right now. I’m just trying to focus on my family and my children,” the actor told CNN.

Nick also admitted that he didn’t even really want to confirm their split to the public, but after a while, felt like he needed to.

“I never wanted to step out there and confirm or deny because it really wasn’t anyone else’s business,” he continued. “You have to speak on things because people are curious.”

And as he has done in previous interviews, Nick expressed that he, Mariah and the twins will always be a family and that they’re handling the divorce as a family would.

“We’re family and we’re human. We’re dealing with this as a family and we’ll forever be a family.”

They definitely appear to be handling things in a mature way. It’s even been reported that the foursome spent Thanksgiving together.

“There Are A Lot Of People After Me Right Now”: Nick Cannon On Whether Or Not He’s Ready To Date…

It was just August when word spread about Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon separating. Though Cannon has been very open about how much he still cares for and loves the singer (and says that they are pleasantly co-parenting), he’s moving on, albeit a little fast. First there was his decision to cover up his “Mariah” tattoo on his back, and now, he’s being interviewed about dating prospects.

While DJing at a gig in Las Vegas on Tuesday, People asked Cannon if he was single and ready to mingle. Thankfully, he said no…well, he kind of said no.

“I’m good, man. I’m great. There are a lot of people after me right now. I gotta slow it down. I’m trying to slow it down and stay focused. Family is the first thing and my kids are most important.”

I have a feeling he was probably joking with the “There are a lot of people after me” statement…right? Yet and still, People went on to ask him what his “perfect woman” would be:

“I couldn’t even tell you right now. That’s a tough one. I haven’t thought about that one. I’m just taking it one day at a time. Obviously the dating thing will come down the line, but right now I’m just slowing down.”

Those questions were definitely too much too soon from the mag, but it seems as though he’s set on moving forward…

Though Nick and Mariah are separated and appear to be well on the path to divorce, Nick says that their children have not noticed much of a change since the split.

“They’re just happy. They love mommy. They love daddy. Being the fact our situation, we have always been people who have been on the go coming and going, their life hasn’t changed one bit,” he said during an interview with Meredith Viero, which is scheduled to air today.

The actor and producer went on to say that they still operate as a family would, including spending holidays together.

“We spend holidays together, we do everything that we are supposed to do together as a family,” he continued.

Nick also addressed some of the outrageous rumors, which have been floating around since the split.

“The media, they can say whatever they want to say and obviously, because you are not giving them anything, so they kind of create all these stories and make it way worse than it actually is.”

“They just make up all of these things. It’s truly just staying focused on family and what’s right and getting through these times and doing what’s right for the kids, so that’s just where we are.”

As for getting his Mariah tattoo covered up, the “Wild N’ Out” host had this to say:

“It’s like a whole work of art, my entire back and my arm and everything. I was leaving the gym going into the studio just having had that work done and they [the paparazzi] got me. It’s going to be a big reveal, but it’s not finished, it’s half-way done. It’s a lot of pain.”

Check out a clip from Nick’s upcoming interview below.

Isaiah Mustafa

Remember him? One minute every woman was fawning over Isaiah Mustafa in those Old Spice commericals, and the next minute, he was pariah #1. At the height of his 15 minutes of fame (which included some TV and film appearances), Mustafah made the big mistake of talking about “good hair” when speaking on what he wants in a future partner:

“I want my kids to have nice hair so she better have good hair. Cause, I don’t know if you’ve checked my hair out lately. Aside from today it’s normally nice. Today it’s slightly nappy.”

He’s picked up guest starring roles here and there on TV shows, but things haven’t been the same for America’s former sweetheart.
