Mariah Carey’s Marriage on The Rocks Thanks to Idol
Posted by Adam
MARIAH Carey‘s marriage is on the rocks — thanks her new gig as an American Idol judge.
According to American tabloid that National Enquirer, Carey’s husband Nick Cannon — who hosts Idol rival America’s Got Talent — is furious that the 43-year-old Grammy winner ignored his wishes and decided to star on a direct competitor of his show.
“Privately, Nick’s gritting his teeth and dead-set against her taking the job,” a source said.
“Nick was tossing around outrageous salary figures in hopes of pricing Mariah out of the market.
“Right until the eleventh hour, he was begging her to pass on the offer.
“He was dangling incentives — diamond jewelry, a luxurious spa vacation, even promising to pay her a one-time ‘gift’ of $15 million for saying no.
“Nick wants her to be a stay-at-home mom to their twins, at least until they turn 5. He was even hoping to have another baby, but Mariah has effectively scorched that dream.”
