Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey living in Splitsville

Mariah Carey and Nick CannonBeing a celebrity has it’s own share of ups and downs. The media wants to know it all. These well known super­stars have been the pub­lic high­light for no other rea­son than ‘split­ting up’.

Nick Can­non and Mariah Carey were the “IT” cou­ple and are still fol­lowed by the media to get insights on how and why did their rela­tion­ship end.

But first let’s have a quick look on their short lived love story. Mariah first met Nick in 2005 at the Teen Choice Awards where he pre­sented her with the Choice Music R&B Artist Award. Like many other celebri­ties they remained tight lipped about their rela­tion­ship. They only began dat­ing two years after they met and were just friends until then.

By 2008, through pub­lic announce­ment, the cou­ple shared the news that they were mar­ried within two months of dat­ing. Mariah used her gift of music to por­tray her love for her man by releas­ing the music video for “Bye Bye” that fea­tured Nick as the lead.

They shared a romance no less than a fairy­tale. Nick had to pro­pose Mariah twice before he could get her to say Yes to marry him. He first pro­posed to the super­star on the rooftop of her Man­hat­tan apart­ment with a 17 carat dia­mond ring.

He had come into her life 10 years after she had split from her ex hus­band. She was going through a low phase in life then, and wanted a way out from life. Meet­ing Nick brought things into per­spec­tive for her.

The sec­ond time around, he made sure to give her a fairy­tale pro­posal by whisk­ing her away on a heli­copter ride. The media began to call her “Cin­derella” when news started to spec­u­late about their fairy­tale romance.

After two years into their mar­riage, she gave birth to two fra­ter­nal twins on 30, April 2011 the same date as they were mar­ried in 2008. She named them, Mon­roe and Moroc­can and nick named her angels as “Dem Babies”.

Early until 2014, they lived as a happy fam­ily, but trou­ble struck in par­adise by August when  Nick announced that he was split­ting up with the for­mer star.

Their love couldn’t blos­som despite the lit­tle angels in their lives. They had also signed a con­fi­den­tial pre-nup where none of them were allowed to speak about their money what so ever.

Nick and Mariah share an age gap of 10 years, she being the older one. Need­less to say, the age dif­fer­ence and the long time fame of the Diva caused dif­fer­ences between them.

She was worth of $510 mil­lion dol­lars then, and he being worth just under $500k — since then he has come a long way, now hold­ing a net worth of $20 mil­lion dollars.

Nick was young and ener­getic, he wanted to go out and live life, while she wanted to stay home and look after the chil­dren. Her well deserved fame caught up into their lives as she did pre­fer to live like a Diva and had demands.

The two found it quite dif­fi­cult to cope up to each oth­ers expec­ta­tions and decided to split their lives and chil­dren. Despite their dif­fer­ences, they claim to still love each other and respect each other by not mak­ing foul statements.
