(SL) – Mariah Carey just announced her engagement to Australian Casino Mogul James Packer, but there’s only one problem. The Grammy award winning singer hasn’t reached a divorce settlement with husband Nick Cannon. Sources say MC believes Cannon is ‘dragging his feet’, but why? Reportedly, they have a prenup so what he can or can’t receive should be ironclad. It’s believed that when Nick and Mariah got marriage he was only worth half-a-million-dollars but he’s made millions since then with a net worth estimated to be around 20 million dollars. Chump change to MiMi’s half a billion dollar fortune, so it is believed that Nick might be trying to work his way around a larger payout. At one point, rumors were circulating that Nick had signed a deal to write a tell-all book about their marriage after MC declined to cut him a check for 30 million. But, Nick told media outlets that he had no plans to write a book. Which makes sense due to the fact that explicit rules and fines are laid out for such disclosures. If Nick breaks the confidentiality clause he will have to pay.
The really interesting fact is that Cannon is the one who filed for divorce a year ago. What’s the holdup Nick?
