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.

Did Mariah Carey Hire A Security Guard To Keep Nick Cannon From Cheating?

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon appear to be in the same boat as Jay Z and Beyoncé when it comes to those nasty divorce rumors. I’m generally a believer in the saying, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” However, in my opinion, marital problems don’t always necessarily equal divorce. Sometimes, people just have things that they need to sort through and according to Page Six, Nick and Mariah have a whole lot of sorting to do if they want to stay together.

Cheating rumors have been surrounding the Hollywood couple for quite some time and now, a source is claiming that Mariah went as fire as hiring a security guard to keep an eye on her young hubby.

“The security guard wasn’t there to keep the girls away from him,” the snitch revealed. “It was to keep him away from the girls.”

The source went on to say that the security guard was specifically hired to keep an eye on the “America’s Got Talent” host during some pool parties that he hosted in Las Vegas earlier this year. According to reports, Mariah also prohibited Nick from drinking at the parties because she feels that he “gets in trouble when he drinks.”

Sadly, the fact that Nick and Mimi haven’t been photographed together in months and that the 43-year-old singer hasn’t featured her hubby in a single social media photo since June, only further fueled the split rumors. Word on the street is that the two have been living separately and it has also been confirmed that they put their $13 million home on the market last month. It has been speculated that the Cannons would be officially announcing their breakup sometime this week; however that has yet to happen.

Considering that this is all circumstantial evidence, I’m hoping that the breakup rumors are false.  But at the rate that couples are throwing in the towel these days, you just never know.

Old Flames, New Loves & Ambition: Watch The New Drumline 2 Trailer

drumline 2 trailer feat

I know some of you had your doubts about Drumline getting a sequel, Drumline: A New Beat. And then some of those fears quelled when you learned that Nick Cannon was not going to be playing the lead. (He’ll just have a cameo.

Earlier this summer we told you that Letoya Luckett would be jointing the cast as Dr. Nia Phillips, a dean at Atlanta A&T, with former romantic ties to Sean–you know, the dude who made Devon’s life a living hell for a few months in the first movie? Leonard Roberts will reprise his role as Sean, by the way.

What’s interesting about this new flick is that the main character is a girl, Danielle “Dani” Bolton.  VH1, reported that this character is a talented drummer from Brooklyn, who defies her parents in order to attend Atlanta A&T and restore their once notable drumline. Dani’s goal is to become the drumline’s first female section leader. But upperclassmen and even feelings for another band mate could put a halt to those plans.

So, we’ll have a little romance.

And what’s particularly interesting is that the role of Dani will be played by Alexandra Shipp. Does that name sound familiar? She’s the same girl who’s signed on to play the role of Aaliyah in the new, and controversial, Lifetime biopic. So we’ll get to see what this Shipp girl is made of.

Check out the rest of the characters and the trailer for the new film on the following pages.

Let’s NOT Talk About Sex: Can The Fellas Cool It With All The Kissing And Telling?

celebrities kissing and telling


Let’s talk about sex.

The men are always doing it: speaking on the performance of their past sexual partners, trading kinky tricks of the trade, putting compromising photos out there, dissing their exes–and it’s all done in public. I’ve never been one to kiss and tell, but it appears that it’s not a big deal for a lot of men, specifically, the men of hip-hop. With repeat offender Bow Wow casually dishing on the skills of all the famous women he has been with and Fredro Starr of ‘90s group Onyx ready to box with Charlamagne Tha God over comments the rapper made in the past about Brandy’s fellatio skills – men in music have always been more vocal about their past sexcapades.

But women aren’t necessarily innocent either. Karinne Steffans anyone? And yes, there is Love and Hip Hop, Basketball Wives, Hollywood Exes and Atlanta Exes. These shows are built solely on women trying to create lives outside of their ex-husbands and boyfriends while spilling tea about them here and there, but those women are hit with labels like “bitter,” “ratchet” or “industry h*e” when they open their mouths. Men, however, are championed for the same tired bars spit on wax and dirt revealed in interviews, and it’s time to give it up.

But the frat house mentality doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, no matter how many times you tell folks that it’s inappropriate:

When discussing who gives the best fellatio between Ciara and Angela Simmons while on “Wild N Out,” Bow Wow (who would rather be referred to as Shad Moss) had this to say:  “Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is mighty, mighty, mighty swell.”

Nick cannon chided Mr. Moss on that show, saying he would have “pleaded the fifth,” but then again, he isn’t necessarily the poster child for keeping personal business private. If it wasn’t for Mariah Carey telling him to pipe down about their business and who he used to roll around with in the sack, he probably would’ve been just like the thirsty fans in the crowd during that show dying to know more.

Look, there is no reason why we should know who you’ve shared a bed or traded spit with and whether or not they lived up to your expectations. It doesn’t help 50 Cent’s career if we know that his sexual experience with talk show host Chelsea Handler was similar to wrestling with a gator. Is it funny? Maybe. But in the grand scheme of things, does it help him sell records? Absolutely not. It’s all just putting someone else on blast, a person who trusted you not to run to the streets telling their business.

We didn’t need to know that Erykah Badu’s “box” had Common whipped (especially since that rumor was going around for years…), or that Eminem had sexual relations with Mariah (something she denies). These inappropriate comments by men way over 18 are immature and they seem like a way to gain publicity rather than harmless jokes at exes who have long forgotten about them.

What makes matters worse is that many of these stars are fathers (or father figures) to little girls who cannot be shielded by their daddy’s raunchy commentary. These same men probably wouldn’t want their own child’s personal business and sexual encounters put out there for laughs and attention.

Kissing and telling is so junior high school. Can we all just…grow up?

Shad Moss, AKA, Bow Wow, Kisses And Tells AGAIN; Speaks On Sex With Ciara And “Rev Run’s Daughter,” Angela Simmons

July 22nd, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

Bow Wow dropped his famous stage name and opted for his government name, Shad Moss, in order to be taken more seriously as a TV host (of 106 & Park), actor and businessman. But try as hard as he might, it’s what comes out of Bow Wow’s mouth that keeps people from taking him seriously. From saying that he makes his girlfriends famous, to kissing  and telling about his exes on national TV, Bow Weezy just can’t get it right. For example, he shared a little too much on Wild ‘N Out recently when asked about the fellatio skills of two of his most famous exes. During a game of “Plead the Fif,” comedian B Daht asked an inappropriate question that the rapper should have known to plead the fifth to. However, he decided to answer anyway:

B Daht: “Who gives the best head? Ciara or Rev Run’s daughter?”

Nick Cannon: “You might want to plead on that one!”

[Crowd chants]: “We wanna know”

Bow Wow: “Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is might, mighty, mighty swell.”

Cannon: “I would’ve pleaded the fifth…”

How ironic that Nick Cannon of all people is telling Bow Wow to plead the fifth, but I guess he learned his lesson after he divulged too much information about sex with Mariah

This isn’t the first time Bow Wow has talked a little too much about his famous exes. During an interview with The Breakfast Club back in 2012, he confirmed that he had slept with Ciara (as well Karrine Steffans, Dollicia Bryan and maybe even Kim Kardashian), but interesting enough, said at that time that he hadn’t had sexual relations with Simmons.  I don’t know if he thinks all this oversharing will help with his credibility as a rapper, but it definitely helps with his image as something of a sleazeball.

Nick Cannon Responds To Being Called A Coon

Nick Cannon has been making money in the industry for years, but regardless of his million-dollar business moves there are some who just can’t get past the actor and entrepreneur’s silly antics. When we had the chance to sit down with Mariah Carey’s husband to discuss his new movie “School Dance,” starring Amber Rose, Mike Epps, and Katt Williams just to name a few, we had to ask him how he feels about people who refer to his artistry as coonery, plain and simple. As expected, the “Drumline” star wasn’t feeling it and invited anyone who throws that term at him to have a one-on-one sit down with him so they can have an educated conversation about his method of entertainment. Check out the video above and see what he had to say.

Richard Pryor’s Kids Against Nick Cannon Starring In Biopic

Word on the street is that Nick Cannon is being tapped by Lee Daniels to star in a forthcoming biopic about the life of Richard Pryor. Nick spoke briefly to TMZ about the film being in the works, but wouldn’t officially confirm whether or not he would be starring in the project.

“There have been a lot of people out there who have discussed playing this role and been in the works. I never wanna jinx anything because y’all know how movies work. If it’s not in production, it’s not real so. All I’m saying is that I’m doing the work right now. I’m doing everything that I need to do embody it when the opportunity is right. I don’t wanna be one of those actors who says, ‘Oh, I’m out here doing it,’ but then you never see the film.”

He did, however, confess that he has spoken with Lee regarding the role. Interestingly, Richard’s children are not really in favor of this option. According to TMZ, Richard Jr. and Rain Pryor don’t feel that Nick has what it takes to play their father. To add fuel to their opposition, they are also not seeing eye to eye with their stepmother, Jennifer Pryor, right now. They are suppposedly feeling that the movie will dishonor their dad because it has become a “vanity project” for Jennifer. Reports suggest that there are also concerns that Jennifer will “skew” Richard Sr.’s story in the movie to make herself look more favorable.

We hear Richard Jr. and Rain were hoping that Marlon Wayans would be tapped for the role.
