Any hope of an amicable divorce between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon appears to have vanished, following Nick’s comments to the TV show The Insider. It seems Mariah is not pleased — to put it mildly — that Nick went off script and yapped to the show that the two are now living apart.
A source tells E! News that Mariah is “devastated” about Nick’s comments because “they had agreed to work on a statement together.” Adds the source, “A joint statement was being prepared when he went and gave those quotes to The Insider.”
“She can’t believe he went and did that,” adds the source. “Not what they had agreed on and not classy. He was not supposed to say a word. She thinks it was extremely childish, impulsive and opportunistic. For her, it was the last straw. She’s done with him now.”
“It’s no longer amicable,” says the source. “Things are getting ugly.” While the insider hasn’t heard that Mariah has actually forced Nick to sign a gag order, which has been reported, he or she “would not be remotely surprised. She is seriously p***ed.”
As for why Mariah and Nick’s once happy marriage is ending, the source explains, “It has a lot to do with Nick’s career choices. He does not have to work, but he’s been throwing himself into gigs and projects.”
Mariah and Nick wed in 2008 and have three-year-old twins. As recently as May, Nick was denying that anything was wrong between him and the pop diva.
