It used to be that we tried to “keep up with Huffpost Divorce” but now all the action seems to be happening over at Page Six. So now, our contributing editor Z. Guest will be keeping an eye out for hot new Page Six révélations and scoops. And if they keep it coming we will have to start a new category called Keeping Up With Page Six!
Anyhoo, Page Six’s latest is about songstress Mariah Carey and her husband of six years Nick Carey and an impending divorce between the two. You may recall that Mariah and Nick got married without having any premarital sex about six years ago. Mariah herself confirmed this in a couple of interviews. So one would have thought that this marriage would have lasted forever because no premarital sex?! This was a huge deal! It was a pure marriage! They don’t make ’em like that anymore. So what the heck happened? How come just six short years and twin toddlers later, these two can no longer stand the scent of each other? Here is Page Six congratulating itself that it was first to scoop the Carey-Cannon Split:
After Page Six exclusively reported that the couple of six years are headed for a split and living separately, Cannon confirmed that his marriage is on the rocks.
“There is trouble in paradise,” Cannon, 33, told The Insider on Thursday. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
“He hasn’t been staying at their home,” a music insider told Page Six. “He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.”
Another source told us Carey, 45, has suspected Cannon of cheating. And when the comic hosted pool parties in Las Vegas earlier this year, the songstress hired security to keep watch over her husband.
But Cannon denied that the couple’s separate living arrangements have anything to do with infidelity.
Whatever the reasons for this divorce (assuming a divorce happens) will Mariah and Nick have a “conscious uncoupling” or a brawl? Chances are they will not have a brawl. Not if they have handled their separation with so much class and dignity. It was so quiet until Page Six (!) outed them that it is doubtful these two want a spectacle. Given their courtship rules, chances are these two have an air tight prenup. Would Nick try to challenge it? He might. But it is doubtful he will be able to set aside a carefully drawn up prenup. What he could do to increase his financial windfall is go after custody of the kids – the usual trick. He apparently told the insider that his main concern is his kids. So this is a hint of how he is thinking. Mariah better not make the mistake of thinking she will just get custody by osmosis or keep Nick away from “dem babies.”He is already dropping hints about that.
