Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Mariah Carey Threatening Nick Cannon with Divorce?

The rumor mill is on overdrive, and it's saying that Mariah Carey is threatening her husband Nick Cannon with divorce if he doesn't slow down and take time to focus on his health.

Nick has been hospitalized multiple times this year due to lupus nephritis, a rare form of lupus that attacks the kidneys.


Mimi is so concerned over Nick's condition that we hear she is threatening to leave Nick and take their twins Moroccan and Monroe with her!

“He thinks Mariah is overreacting and blowing everything out of proportion,” revealed an insider. “Besides that, Nick is insecure about living in Mariah’s shadow, and if he quit work altogether he feels like he’d have no identity of his own.


Nick has tried to comply and quit his “CBS Radio” show, but he’s refusing to give up other work commitments, including hosting “America’s Got Talent” and his weekly “Cannon’s Countdown” syndicated radio program.

“He hates being known as Mr. Mariah Carey.” Said the source: “Nick’s work is his passion, but he doesn’t want to lose his wife and his kids — or his life!”
