Ugh. Celebrity divorces seem to always be messy or nasty. And it looks like Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are taking a mix of both, with their lengthy divorce.
The couple who married in 2008, officially separated in 2014 after a tumultuous breakup and public illnesses. Cannon filed for divorce and Carey has since moved on with billionaire businessman, James Packer.
But a new report alleges that Cannon is still in love with Carey, which is why the final papers have not been signed yet.
According to TMZ, Mariah has been trying to get Nick to sign off for nearly a year, but he just won’t do it and won’t say why. They claim the issues have long been settled, yet Nick repeatedly has declined to sign the papers that would make the divorce official. With a source saying Nick —even though he wanted out of the marriage— still loves Mariah and doesn’t want to officially let her go.
Not sure how true any of this information is but we can say that the pair seem to be happily co-parenting. And if there were any old feelings between them, we’d hope this is something they could discuss respectfully.
Carey is currently on tour promoting her compilation album, #1 to Infinity and is set to star in her own docu-series. Cannon is rapping again, most recently challenging Eminem to a rap battle for $100k.
