Are Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon already on the rocks?

Shocking allegations have emerged… that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may already be having marital problems. Say it isn’t so! Who would ever have thought a spur-of-the-moment wedding by two people who’ve only been together a couple of months could ever, ever turn out badly? Apparently Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon don’t have quite the mystical emotional bond that they led us to believe. I, for one, feel utterly betrayed.

Is the honeymoon over for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon? Just two months after their surprise Bahamas wedding, the lovey-dovey couple may be hitting the skids — thanks to Mariah’s demanding diva ways. With his wife wearing the pants in the relationship, Nick is rapidly gaining a reputation as the most whipped man in Hollywood, something that naturally doesn’t sit to well [sic] with him, a source tells OK!.

“He’s basically around to attend to her diva-ish ways,” the source says. Shortly after arriving in Oahu, Hawaii, where Mariah was filming her new video for “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time,” Nick, 27, diligently played the part of personal assistant. He dashed off to buy her gifts at Tiffany & Co. and Louis Vuitton, and when his 39-year-old bride hurt herself during the shoot, he was right by her side. “He helped Mariah out of the pool,” an eyewitness tells OK!. “She looked like she was going to cry.”

Meanwhile, Mariah is taking charge of another aspect of her hubby’s life: his career! “Nick had signed on to perform at a sweet-sixteen party before he and Mariah got married,” an insider tells OK!. “But now Mariah needs to oversee and approve his career moves. There’s no more silly Wild ’N Out, or small-time gigs. She wants him to do big venues and projects. She definitely wears the pants.”

[From OK! Magazine]

This isn’t the first account of Mariah treating Nick like her assistant. But the examples given in OK! don’t strike me as especially “diva-ish” behavior – like a husband helping his injured wife. I mean she was in a pool at the time so I’m guessing the injury is something along the lines of her false eye lashes coming unglued or something of that nature. But Nick helping an upset Mariah out of the pool isn’t exactly an example of him being whipped.

Neither is his buying her expensive presents, with (what I’m guessing is) her money. It’s all about the extent and the ridiculousness of it all, and that’s hard to know unless we actually see the two of them interacting.

Frankly, Mariah Carey has got a pretty great career, and Nick Cannon is most famous… for … crap. He was in something. Once. And that other thing a few times. You get the point. If Mariah Carey wants to help him out career-wise, I’d go for it. If he wants to be left alone and make his own career decisions entirely independently from Mariah, then that’s his business. But he may well want her help. Maybe they’re just using each other. And isn’t that what marriage is all about?

    So what if she does treat him like her assistant? What did a guy like that think was going to happen? Everyone knows what a demanding diva she is, so it’s not as if he went into this thing blindly. He is a gold digger, just like a lot of women out there.

    I always hate to see those 63 day relationships in trouble. It’s just a tragedy.

  3. Silly Lilly says:

    Gasp! Shock! Stun! (was that convincing???)

  4. Cinderella says:

    She’s used a husband in a relationship before, so why not go for two.

  5. kate says:

    i suspect they are breaking up because mariah refuses to let nick see the left side of her face. ever.

    Very wise words Candy Kay’s Mom.

    Ouch. That tattoo removal surgery Nick is going to have soon is gonna hurt! But maybe Pharell Williams will donate some of his home-grown skin.

    I don’t like Mariah Carey or her music (except for the beautiful duet she once did with Whitney Houston) but that wouldn’t be so bad. What really irks me about this woman is how childish she is. She seems to consider men her puppets and once they’re broken, she just tosses them away.

    I don’t know if those rumours are true now and you’re right about those particular examples not being that great. But I’m sure those rumours will come true in only a few months’ time. I wonder how iron-clad their prenup is. Maybe Nick will rake in the big bucks. That would be a good compensation for being pussy whipped.

    too funny kate!!! she’s got some many hang-ups it must suck to be her! she NEVER looks comfortable in her own skin.

  10. Kristin says:

    It’s kinda sad. I met Nick a couple of years ago and he was a really nice guy.

  11. vdantev says:

    What? That demanding diva b*tch pain in the ass ? I don’t believe it !!

  12. gg says:

    Wait a minute — he’s 27 and she’s 39? Is that right? If that’s accurate, damn, no wonder.

  13. Megan says:

    He wouldn’t have married her if he knew the Mariah everyone else knows… I think he’s going to live to regret it!

  14. Jenna says:

    Nick Cannon is famous for his previous stint on All That. Anyone agree? lol

  15. Blackalicious says:

    Laughing at Kate’s comment. I know a few celebrities who do the famous 3/4 profile a la Beavis and Butthead (one of them always had the head cranked at that angle. Always and forever. Amen).

    i think Mariah is so insane and in her own sparkling, magical gumdrops and dancing lollipops kingdom that no one can stay with her for too long. She’ll freak when the real grit shows through and normal arguments/issues crop up. Not everyone flits around on heels and grins through life. And not everyone shits glitter like her.

  16. The Worm Turns says:

    Didn’t Madonna divorce Tommy for being the controlling type? The Jimmy Chu is on the other foot now, ain’t that a big fat hoot????????

    Why do so many celebs have wonky eyes?

  17. Bet says:

    I bet he has to squeeze the pimples on her butt.

    And in this picture it looks like she’s puttin’ on some L B s.

  18. Orangejulius says:

    Magical gumdrops and dancing lollipops kingdom and ‘shits glitter’…. hilarious Blackalicious!

    This woman has too large of a ego to feed on a daily basis. Mariah is under delusions of grandeur. She thinks everyone should roll out a red carpet when she walks by. It is quite the turn off. Nice voice, but the ego and attitude cancel out the nice voice. It is what killed her career before. She got humble, came back onto the scene, people started liking her again, and bam there it is, that nauseating ego of hers. This woman turns my stomach.

  20. TINKERLOVE says:

    as you have brought to my attention she really like always have her one side of the face covered??? I wonder why??? is she burnt???

    I don`t believe that nick married her for her money I do :lol: :P believe that she married him for the control of a young talanted man seeking more career challenges

  21. wirls says:

    What goes around comes back around. Nick might clean her out financially when he decides to exit. He will leave her like she left Tommy. What better way to strike some riches, just marry her, hang out for a while and then see ya baybay-especially with no pre-nup, he must be the luckiest man on the planet right about now, she is such a fool…. It seems as though she’s lost it, he knows she has money and most men nowadays target females with lots of money, that’s all they seem to want..I am sure he’s not as stupid and she is..
