Report: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Breaking Up?

Nick Cannon is the funny-guy host of America’s Got Talent and it’s no secret that he’s absolutely against his wife Mariah Carey selling her soul to American Idol, but has this little disagreement caused their relationship to go on the fritz? Are Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon breaking up? While Nick admits that his wife will be an amazing judge on American Idol, he’s furious that she’ll be working on a show that is in direct competition with his own show. Snap crackle pop!

An inside source for the National Enquirer 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.”

It seems as if Nick was trying everything and more to get people to bow out of pursuing his wife for the show, but he should know by now that Mariah gets what Mariah wants. Come on, Nick . . . we know who wears the pants (or dress) in this relationship — and I’m pretty sure it’s not you. The insider for the tabloid even said that Nick went so far as to bribe (that’s right, bribe) his wife to stay away from the show:

“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.”

We’re not quite sure if Nick Cannon is just overreacting here or if this is actually the small beginnings to something bigger . . . Is there another big divorce on the horizon? It would be unfortunate if the two let something as petty as this come between them, but people in Hollywood have broken up over smaller things — True Dat!
