Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have been separated for some time now and neither has been seen wearing their wedding rings since August of 2014, but they have been denying rumors they were headed to divorce. Nick filed the divorce papers in December. It is now being reported that the parents of three year old twins Monroe and Moroccan are officially divorced.
The drama surrounding Nick and Mariah’s relationship heightened on December 2nd, when Carey was three hours late to the Rockerfeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting event in New York City. According to TMZ, Mariah’s severely late arrival to record the NBC segment was caused by a lengthy telephone conversation with her lawyers regarding Nick’s intent to file the divorce papers. Apparently, Nick secretly delivered the divorce papers to Mariah just one week after they had jointly worked out an agreed deal. Nick and Mariah dated only six months before their wedding in 2008.
TMZ has also reported that even though the power couple is divorced, they are still joined together by a lawsuit filed by their former nanny, Simonette DaCosta. Ms. DaCosta alleges she was fired because she was showing too much affection to Monroe and Moroccan, which caused Mariah to be jealous. DaCosta claims that Mariah even berated her for showing the twins too much affection. DaCosta is seeking to recover back pay and other damages.
