There is a little hitch to Mariah Carey’s plans to live happily ever after with her new billionaire boy toy, and it is her old millionaire boy toy.
Carey and ex-husband Nick Cannon are in the process of finalising their long overdue divorce, yet so close to the finish line, Cannon is dragging his feet.
According to gossip site TMZ, Nick is refusing to sign the divorce papers because he is still enamoured with his ex, and doesn’t want her off marrying some hot Australian- this is despite the fact that he filed for divorce in the first place, and that the pair have settled any and all issues.
The site reports….
Mariah has been trying to get Nick to sign off for nearly a year, but he just won’t do it and won’t say why.
“..all of the issues have long been settled, yet Nick repeatedly has declined to sign the papers that would make the divorce official.
“Our sources say Nick — even though he wanted out of the marriage — still loves Mariah and doesn’t want to officially let her go. He also doesn’t want Mariah to marry her fiance, James Packer.
Nick and Mariah separated in September 2014, with Cannon filing for divorce in December. Carey and Packer got engaged in January, and certainly must be impatient to get this business out of the way.
