Mariah Carey + Nick Cannon Finalize Divorce…Two Years Later
Mariah Carey once observed that love takes time — it seems the same is true for breakups. More than two years after she and Nick Cannon split, the former couple and parents of two young children are finally divorced, according to TMZ.
The site reports the divorce strangely became final this summer, just a few days before Carey and current fiance James Packer began allegedly going through a rough patch. TMZ reports Mimi was eager to sever the fraying tie with Cannon so that she could proceed to her next marriage. Now, though, the site says there may be no wedding between Carey and Packer at all.
Carey and Cannon have agreed to joint custody of their five-year-old twins, the site adds. And, thanks to a prenuptial agreement, Carey will keep all of her earnings — neither party is entitled to child support.
"Like, Nah!’ That’s clearly not the case. Who made that up? Who put that out there?” he said. “I wish it was that easy where you can just sign something and say, ‘Oh, I’m done,’ but it’s a lot of things that go with that that are beyond my control. The only thing that’s important to me is my children. I want what’s best for them. I believe my ex feels the exact same way."
