Details emerge surrounding Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s divorce


Details have emerged surrounding Nick Cannon’s “Emancipation of Mimi.” Now that the “America’s Got Talent” host has officially filed for a divorce from the iconic singer, certain specifics regarding financials, confidentiality clauses and more are coming to light.

According to TMZ, Carey and Cannon have a prenup with a confidentiality clause.

“If Nick violates the confidentiality clause he has to pay her a $250,000 penalty, but if she spills the beans she has to pay him $500,000,” TMZ reports.

This was made clear in the prenup, which also notes that Carey came into the marriage with $150 million, while Cannon who entered the marriage seven years ago, had less than $500,000 to his name.

Although Cannon has made some major moves since then, making millions on various projects, when they first got engaged, he purchased an engagement ring for $500,000 but took a loan out for $470,000. The ring was reportedly worth $2.5 million.

In August 2013, Cannon confirmed there was “trouble in paradise,” and he and Carey were “living in separate houses.” The couple who married in 2008, have two beautiful children, 3-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.

    if he is filing on her that means she can just forget it she still has to share houses and assets with him that was in the prenup and knowing her she probably promised him 30 percent assets . or or less, if she is gonna have sole custody which they will get joint custody for sure she would not do him like that cause she still loves him ., i like nick cannon he just a goofy dude, i knew they were falling apart wen she came on the america got talent show , lookin drunk… and illusional . he seem so embarrassed at her . wish them the best though
