Mariah Carey might be the highest-paid American Idol judge to-date; however, this doesn’t appear to make her husband, Nick Cannon, very happy. Cannon, who happens to host America’s Got Talent, a sort-of rival of American Idol, happens to be furious with his wife over her decision to star on his show’s competitor.
Of course, Cannon said his wife would be “amazing on Idol,” but sources say that privately Nick disapproves and is totally against her taking the job. It was reported that when Carey was in negotiations with Idol’s producers, Nick Cannon commented:
“I don’t know if they can afford Mariah Carey…If they gave J.Lo $20 million, they might have to double that!”
Truth is Cannon wanted Carey to be a stay-at-home mom to their twins, at least until they turn five. He was even hoping to have more kids, but Carey turned the idea down. In desperation, he even offered incentives such as diamond jewelry, luxurious spa vacations, and a gift of $15 million if she would turn down the offer.
Whoa! Do we smell trouble in paradise?
