Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are headed to divorce court. At least, that's what the tabloids would have you believe. If it's true, I have this to say, nay, this to loudly wail to the heavens: LOVE IS DEAD. Though neither half of the couple has said anything officially, Nick and Mariah haven't been photographed together in ages, and they put their mansion up for sale in July. Selling off the mansion is never a good sign.
What's the reason for their schism? In addition to non-stop fighting, apparently Mariah suspects that Nick has been fooling around with other women. I find this suspect, as every woman on the planet still quietly in at least part of her heart wants to BE Mariah Carey, not be WITH her husband. No word yet as to whether or not this rumor is totally true and Nick was just snapped smiling and wearing his wedding ring, but who knows what goes on behind closed doors?
I have to be real, if they break up, it's going to be kind of depressing. Not Amy Poehler and Will Arnett levels of sad, but close! Sure, their 12-year age gap raised eyebrows, but they seemed kind of strangely perfect for each other. I mean, how awesome was it that they made the birth of their twins into a veritable adorable Internet hashtag, #dembabies anyone?
It's funny when celebrity couples split. It's not like we know them or anything, but it definitely takes the wind out one's proverbial sails, especially when the couple involved seems like the perfect pairing of two like-minded weirdos who are destined to take over the world together. It makes me want to give up on love! Only maybe don't tell my boyfriend that because he will give me a WORLD of side-eye for being so melodramatic.
Why do you think Mariah and Nick might be having problems?
