The drama surrounding the end of the relationship between Mariah Carey and James Packer is not over. Now, it has been claimed that the famous singer really wanted to marry James before the separation. And for Mariah to be able to do that, her divorce from estranged husband Nick Cannon had to be finalized. However, Nick reportedly kept on refusing to sign the divorce papers.
Allegedly, he finally agreed to do so after Mariah personally called him and asked him to sign the divorce because she really wanted to marry her boyfriend of that time. The news was reported by Page Six, which indicated that Mariah was much in love with James before the split and was determined to become his wife. She was so eager to marry James that Mariah actually begged Nick Cannon to sign the divorce papers.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon separated more than two years ago. Although Mariah filed for divorce, the legal separation was not finalized. It has been claimed that one of the main reasons why this has happened was given by the fact that Nick didn’t want to sign the divorce papers. His reasons in refusing to do so have not been revealed.
However, what is certain is that Nick changed his mind when Mariah called him and told him that she really wanted to move on with her life with James. “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,” the source explained.
But, unfortunately for Mariah and James, they could not take advantage of the fact that the singer was single in the eye of the law. The pair separated at the same time when Mariah’s divorce was being finalized. Sources also claimed that James really wanted to marry Mariah, as well. Some emails he allegedly sent to the singer before the split revealed that James was ready to spend the rest of his life with the singer. The exact reason why Mariah and James separated has not been revealed.
