Nick Cannon Sworn to Secrecy Over Mariah Carey Divorce

Publicada Viernes Agosto 22, 2014 10:59 AM GMT

His marriage to Mariah Carey is all but over, however Nick Cannon is not allowed to discuss any details of the split.

Per a TMZ report, the “America’s Got Talent” hunk has been given a massive monetary incentive to keep his mouth shut, and if he doesn’t he’ll face “severe financial penalties.”

Up to this point, Nick has only mentioned, “There is trouble in paradise… we have been living in separate houses for a few months,” in a recent interview with The Insider.

Furthermore, Cannon isn’t the one who wants the divorce. A source told press, “Mariah has had several closed door meetings with divorce lawyers. But Nick's being more passive. He's less inclined to pull the trigger, perhaps because of the kids. He'll definitely wait for Mariah to file for divorce, but he won't go down without a fight. He wants a chunk of her $500 million fortune.”

“Nick's sensible and realizes that the twins would have a more stable existence if Mariah had full custody. But he wants generous visitation rights.”
