Nick Cannon has finally decided to talk about the rumors that have been on lately, saying that he was not ready to give Mariah the divorce. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have separated more than a year ago, but the two have not officially divorced.
Recently, some rumors said that Nick was to blame for this, as he refused to sign the divorce papers, while his estranged wife wanted to remarry. Mariah is currently planning her wedding to James Packer. Well, it seems that Nick Cannon wants everyone to know that he is not trying to delay the divorce proceedings.
Nick Cannon opened up about these rumors during an interview with Genius. Nick also talked about his new song, Divorce Papers. The star claimed that he and Mariah are in good terms, but dealing with lawyers is quite difficult. He also said that he decided to release this latest single because of the rumors saying that he was the reason why the papers have not been finalized yet.
“I was like, ‘You want Divorce Papers? Well here you go!'” the star claimed. “The lawyer’s line was also me releasing a little frustration at the attorneys on both sides because lawyers always think they control the clients and they cause most of the friction, especially since my ex and I get along,” he went on to add.
Nick also opened up about his children and claimed that the most difficult part of his divorce from Mariah has actually been the fact that he now has to co-parent his twin children. Nick revealed that he tries to stay strong for his children, but things are not very simple.
“There is nothing more painful than parting with or having to drop your children off,” he claimed during his interview. “One day as my daughter was giving me a hug goodbye my eyes welled up and she looked at me and said, ‘Daddy, why do you have tears in your eyes?’ and I told her it was because I love her. She understood. She is a genius. She just hugged me harder and said I love you, too. Waterworks!”
