Nick Cannon files for divorce from Mariah Carey


Los Angeles, Jan 17:

Actor Nick Cannon has reportedly filed for a divorce from his wife Mariah Carey.

AFP-Getty_526170709Cannon filed the divorce papers Dec 12, 2014, just a week after Carey was said to have been discussing property settlement terms with her lawyers, reports tmz.com.

The couple is said to have agreed on a deal, but Cannon isn’t going to be entitled to any of the singer’s earnings from her forthcoming Las Vegas residency.

Confirming earlier this week that she’d signed up to headline the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Carey is expected to receive over $30 million for the string of shows.

Cannon took to micro-blogging site Twitter earlier this month to insist he wants to “move forward” and would never “say anything negative” about Carey, femalefirst.co.uk had reported.

He tweeted: “I will never say anything negative about @MariahCarey. We are forever a family rooted in love.

“I am always an open book but personal matters are just that ‘personal.’ So please respect my family and respect the process. I have no problem being painted as the bad guy. I got tough skin. Keep going. I just pray we all can move forward in the new year,” he wrote. IANS
