Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are reportedly headed for a certain divorce, and Nick’s confession about a sexual history with Kim Kardashian may be to blame.
Back in March the singer and television host gave hosts at Power 106 radio a list of celebrities he had slept with, which also included reality television star Kim Kardashian. Sources say Mariah Carey was devastated and embarrassed by the admissions, which also touched on when Nick and Mariah first slept together.
In the interview, Nick admitted that he lost track of how many women he had slept with.
“Are you kidding me this is L.A.? That’s the whole purpose of it, you have sex with actresses, singers, models,” Nick Cannon said.
Nick was also quick to add a list of celebrities he had bedded.
“That’s easy. OK, Mariah Carey, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger, Selita Ebanks, oh, Kim Kardashian.”
Nick added that a lot of people forgot about his 2006 relationship with Kim Kardashian, as she has been with a lot of men since then. At the time Nick Cannon was coming off a string of successful ventures including the movie Drumline and his own show on MTV. Kim Kardashian was a fledgling star, best known for her sex tape with singer Ray J.
Sources say Nick and Mariah has been separated since May, and that they can no longer even stand to be around each other.
“When they spend time together these days, it’s just bickering,” a source said. “Mariah seemed to give up on the marriage earlier this year. And now he’s checked out too.”
There is a chance the divorce could be quite costly for Mariah Carey. TMZ is reporting that the couple reached a property settlement and custody agreement that gives Nick Cannon a big chunk of Carey’s $500 million fortune. With a personal net worth of about $20 million before the split, Nick Cannon could stand to make a lot of money after the couple’s four homes, $5 million private jet, and lot full of expensive cars are split up.
