Report: Mariah Carey Begged Nick Cannon for Divorce Before Split from James Packer
According to Page Six, the singer called her now-ex-husband days before she split from her billionaire fiancé. “I want you to sign the divorce papers,” she told Cannon, according to an insider. “I really want to get married to James Packer.”
Earlier reports suggest that Cannon refused to sign off on the divorce papers, but now we know why he had a change of heart. “Mariah called Nick and said, ‘I really want to get married. Will you sign these papers?’ Nick was cool and said, ‘I’m not going to stand in your way. I’ll sign the papers.’ He signed in September because Mariah and James wanted to get married in early 2017,” another source revealed to the magazine.
Unfortunately, it was too late for Carey and Packer, who split shortly after her divorce with Cannon was finalized. Now, the “We Belong Together” singer has demanded $50 million from her ex because that’s what he promised her in a marriage prenup that was never signed.
