Rumors of a breakup have haunted Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey since they first started dating. Now married and raising a pair of twins, you’d think the couple would be safe from speculation, but a new round of tabloid reports suggests Mariah is threatening to leave Nick…out of concern for his health.
Nick has been hospitalized multiple times in the past year as the result of a rare kidney disease. An anonymous source claims that Mariah is fed up with Nick putting his health on the back burner so that he can focus on his career. The “insider” even claims she’s threatened to leave him and take the kids if he doesn’t start to take it easy and look after himself.
“He thinks Mariah is overreacting and blowing everything out of proportion,” says the source. “Besides that, Nick is insecure about living in Mariah’s shadow, and if he quit work altogether he feels like he’d have no identity of his own…He hates being known as Mr. Mariah Carey.”
This is likely BS (dude had to know he’d never match Mariah’s level of fame before he married her) but Nick has suffered some major health setbacks as of late and he did recently quit his CBS radio show. Maybe Mariah needed to talk tough in order for Nick to get his priorities straight.
