Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Headed for Divorce

Mariah Carey is divorcing husband of six years, Nick Cannon, after allegations of infidelity surfaced in the media. Cannon has been linked to model Jasmine Sanders and actress Brittany Dailey, but the former Nickelodeon star has denied the rumors.

Cannon is also rumored to be dating Amber Rose, who has just split from rapper husband Wiz Khalifa. The two were spotted riding the roller coaster at Knott's Berry Farm last Friday. The comedian also hosted a surprise birthday party for the model earlier this week. However, Cannon insisted that they are just friends.


Carey and Cannon will be fighting for custody of their children, Moroccan and Monroe, both 3, as well as their eight dogs. Carey also hit Cannon with a gag order, which legally prohibits him from talking about the divorce to the media.

The two put their Bel Air mansion up for sale in July and have been living separately since August of this year. It is rumored that Carey hired bodyguards to keep Cannon away from other women whenever the television host went partying. The actor, who had his soon-to-be ex-wife's name inked on his back, had it covered with a larger crucifix tattoo.

Cannon has also publicly criticized Carey in the past. During an appearance in Anderson Cooper's talk show in 2012, Cannon said, “The kids run the house. My wife is being the diva that she is. I’m trying to keep up with them.”

Though Cannon posted amicable tweets about Carey's parenting skills, the singer has reportedly taken the twins on tour with her without Cannon's permission. The Elusive Chanteuse Tour is currently in Singapore and will head to Taiwan after.

Carey has been getting negative reviews for her vocal performance and wardrobe choices while on tour. The singer forgot the lyrics to “Always Be My Baby” and failed to reach high notes. She also had a wardrobe malfunction during a show in China.
