Unless her husband has an extremely good excuse, no wife should spend Valentine’s Day alone. But that is exactly what Mariah Carey will be doing.
While speaking to radio host Ryan Seacrest on Thursday, the 43-year-old said, 'The abandoner is going to be somewhere else. And by abandoner, I mean Nicholas Scott Cannon. I was giving him [beep] about it all day. I’ll be alone with the babies, but they’re my Valentines anyway,” she added. The couple has 2-year-old twins, Morrocan and Monroe. Just the day before, Cannon was out at a party in New York, where he was honored as Blue Magazine's February cover star. Carey spoke about her husband of five years the same day, complaining, “He’s not even going to be home [on Valentine's Day] from what I hear now. The schedule darling, the schedule darling,” she said on Power 105.1 Radio’s Breakfast Club.
This cannot be good for the breakup rumors, as the couple sparked divorce rumors after they recently placed their 11,750-square-foot Bel Air mansion on the market for $12.9 million. That's more than $5 million more than what they paid for it in 2009.
Carey and Cannon, 33, have previously denied that their marriage is in trouble. The couple began secretly dating in 2008 before making their relationship public. They wed within two months of their first date and have renewed their vows every year. Their Los Angeles-area mansion, where they lived with their young twins, features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a theater, a music room, a basketball court and a swimming pool.
The couple seemed to have the perfect relationship, but the National Enquirer claimed in its October issue that Carey had stopped wearing her wedding ring and had been getting a little too close to some young men in the music industry.
“All this cavorting around with handsome men has Nick seeing red,” a source said. “He’s about at the end of his rope with Mariah.”
At the same time, Carey is also believed to be concerned about Cannon’s wandering eye, especially since his MTV show, “Wild 'N Out,” has a staff of gorgeous women.
