MARIAH Carey has reportedly banned her husband, Nick Cannon, from speaking out about their split.
The 44-year-old singer has been living apart from her husband since June and has reportedly “started the divorce process”.
A source told The Daily Mirror: “Nick and Mariah have the paperwork in place for the break-up. Both will not have to give away their fortunes, and will split very easily in legal terms.
“The one clause that is a problem is that he must not speak about Mariah or kiss and tell. If he does Mariah can come after him legally.
“Mariah has always been controlled about her personal life. Nick is a much more open book and could face troubles if he lets slip.”
Mariah and Nick – who have three-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, together – married in 2008.
Recently, the ‘America’s Got Talent’ host took to Twitter to defend the mother of his children.
He wrote: “What infuriates me most is to hear people slander @MariahCarey . I will forever be in debted to her for blessing me with our children…
“I will always love her unconditionally for this and so much more. @MariahCarey is an amazing Mother and I trust her wholeheartedly… [sic]”
“So to see false reports in the media stating otherwise is absurd! While I would like to remain silent I can no longer allow this to happen,” he added.
“I love @MariahCarey and that will never change!!! For the record I NEVER have, nor will I make a statement regarding my marriage. [sic].” â€“ Bang Media
