Mariah Carey Rules with a Well-Moisturized Iron Fist

It’s not all rainbows and honey-covered dewdrops for newlyweds Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. The divalicious pop star’s high-maintenance lifestyle may be wearing thin on Mrs. Cannon’s young husband since their quickie wedding took place not so many months ago.

An insider dished to Life & Style, “Nick does whatever Mariah wants him to—he’s like her puppy. It seems like Nick spends more time in the stores with Mariah’s credit card than he does with Mariah herself.”

What? Such a claim sounds completely preposterous. The tipster went on to say that Nick has developed the nickname of “Whipped Nick” by Mimi’s friends and assistants.

As for the couple’s future, this spy holds out little hope for Mr. and Mrs. Cannon, suggesting that the “till death do them part” bit might end up being more like six months.
