Mariah Carey treats new husband Nick Cannon like an assistant


This week’s In Touch has a story that reveals the lengths that Mariah Carey’s new husband Nick Cannon, 27, will go to please her. The pampered singer has her husband wait for her attentively outside the bathroom, carry her bags, and generally cater to her every need.

In Touch quotes a psychiatrist who theorizes that considering Mariah’s failed marriage to Tommy Mottola, in which she felt controlled by the older music executive, she’s probably looking for someone she feels safe with and superior to:

Newlyweds Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were enjoying a romantic dinner at Gyu-Kaku in LA when suddenly, the pop diva felt the urge to use the restroom. “She told Nick to escort her to the bathroom,” a witness at the restaurant on May 12 tells In Touch. “He walked here there, then waited outside the door. It was like he was on her security team.”

Insiders say that since the two married in the Bahamas on April 30, Nick seems more like Mariah’s employee than her spouse. “She treats Nick like an assistant,” says a friend of Mariah’s. “He’s not treated like her equal or her husband.” Nick also seems to be at Mariah’s beck and call. “He’s very attentive to her,” his pal… Kevin Frazier tells In Touch.

[From In Touch, print edition, June 2, 2008]

Nick seems to enjoy his protective and some say subservient role to Mariah and there are plenty of other husbands and boyfriends who love pampering their mates. If she doesn’t take him for granted and he doesn’t mind doing things for her, they may have an arrangement that works for them.

I have a husband who likes to bring me coffee, do the dishes, and treat me well. He’s not a pushover though, and he does these things because we love and care for each other, not because he’s expected to. I bring him his coffee too. As long as Nick is doing it out of the kindness of his heart and doesn’t play the chump role it could work out in his very new, very green relationship with Mariah. It’s a hard tightrope to walk, though, when you’re with a woman who’s used to having her every whim met with the best luxury items money can buy.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are shown in the header image leaving Gyu-Kaku restaurant on 5/12/08. Nick Cannon is shown out shopping at Rite Aid on 5/13/08. Some sites noted that he was looking at laxatives, but all he brought home were some “Hot Tomales” candy.
He’s also shown buying Hello Kitty merchandise that same day. Thanks to WENN.

    Yummy I love Hot Tamales!! The spiciest candy in America. As long as she isn’t calling Nick “boy” before she gives him her command, then I think it’s ok for him to wait on her.

  2. Larissa says:

    I think EVERY relationship is about one thing…and its not necessarily love, it´s reciprocity! As long as she is giving what he wants, and she is getting what she needs it should work just fine!

  3. Ron says:

    Wow. That’s a surprise. I wouldn’t expect anything less. I think Mark Anthony knows a thing or two about this, they should lunch.

  4. CeeJay says:

    If I was Mariah Carey and didn’t have my security team around I’d probably ask my hubby to escort me to and from the bathroom also. The woman obviously gets mobbed every where she goes. Glad to hear she’s found a guy who will love and protect her.

  5. Devilgirl says:

    So he is nice to her, so what? He may just love his wife. I wish my ex-boyfriend had treated me even as well as an assistant.

  6. Robena says:

    This has gotta be one of the lamest and biggest publicity stunts so far this year…if their sole goal was to entertain us, they’ve done their job!

  7. OoooLaLa says:

    What’s wrong with him being attentive? So that’s wrong as oppose to ….?

  8. Vince says:

    I used to know a couple like this once.

    ““She treats Nick like an assistant,” says a friend of Mariah’s. “He’s not treated like her equal or her husband.””

    Kinky couple… if you know what I mean.

  9. uhh says:

    does anyone else think she looks like a muppet? and whats up with her calling everyone “daaaaaaaaaahling?” what a moron.

  10. Dana Da Designated Hata says:

    Well…you know “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”. Nick will do whatever it takes to make things work….the jury is still out on this one. But I’m kind of suspect!!

  11. fusion says:

    think that this marriage was done to cover up something else. it was a bribe.

  12. Mr. T says:

    Any guy has to be an idiot to be married to an actress or a musician.

    Hmm…NewOrleans, you should have followed your own advice. You were probably sleeping with some Mimi wannabe. Or you could have contracted it from the next errr woman that you were riding with unbooted. You brought your problems on your own self. I am sure that the woman is smart enough to NOT be getting down and without taking care of her business. Women typically get yearly check-ups and handle their medical issues. Do not blame your problems on others. lol Nick seems to be a good guy that woudl not mind showing much love and affection to his woman. That makes him an outstanding man. He might be young, but in his few short years…I have never heard any bad stuff about him disrespecting women, etc. I wish the two of them much happiness. He gives out good and positive karma and he’ll continue to reap that good and positive karma.

  17. Suly says:

    I think she is crazy… she seems like a stuck up, spoiled, biotch!!!

  18. I am glad for Mariah and Nick, I am happy that they found each other. Iam happy that he pampers her, because I like to be pampered. I hope that they live a long and happy life together. From Middleagediva (m.A.D.) and also a singer. I loved the movie “Glitter”, and she is one of my favorite singers. And if I had to choose a voice and I don’t have a bad voice, but If I had to choose a voice from any one voice I would choose her voice. Love you both Mariah and Nick.

    I would trust my husband to take care of me if I were a celbrity, you never know what kind of freaks are stalking and I think it is wonderful that he loves her and wants to protect her. Isn’t that what a marriage is supposed to be about? Media tries to twist everything. My ups to them both for being so close and trusting. Leave them alone and they just might make it.

  25. mariah and nick they are good couples: i believe that in love you can nt be equal in status then one have to be submisive
