Mariah and Nick: The Dirt On Their Marriage

|

Everyone’s favorite diva is on the cover of the August issue of Elle, looking utterly foxy in addition to finally opening up about her whirlwind courtship and marriage to Nick Cannon. Though the couple have recently been plagued by reports of the honeymoon being over, Mariah dispels all rumors, sharing a few choice facts about Mr. Mimi and how it all went down.

* Mariah didn’t say yes to Nick — the first time. Apparently Nick had to propose twice, then Mariah finally agreed to marry him. “He sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he re-proposed.” Mariah shut Nick down days earlier when he proposed on the roof of her apartment.

* There may be the pitter-patter of little footsteps. “I couldn’t imagine anybody that I’ve ever met being a better dad,” Mariah says of her hubby.

* Apparently, Nick’s a heavy sleeper. As Mimi conducted the interview, Cannon stayed behind closed doors of their suite, sleeping the entire time despite barking from behind the bedroom door.

EVERY SINCE BEYONCE AND JAYZ GOT SECRETLY MARRIED EVERYBODY’S BEEN DOING IT. I JUST HOPE NOONE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS COMMITS SUICIDE THEN THEY’LL ALL START DOING THAT ALSO.NOTICE WHEN ONE CELEBRITY DOES SOMETHING EVERYBODY ELSE DOES IT TOO. WHAT A WASTE OF TALENT.

  41. Shuneka says:

    Best wishes to Mariah and Nick. Everybody deserves happiness and if the media leaves them alone, then they might stay that way forever. Also, everyone else should ease up on speaking the negative words over them. When you say you’re in love you don’t want anyone saying bad things about your relationship. Just let them grow and experience life together. God Bless!!!

  49. Cecilia says:

    they look happy. its sad how celeberty couples have to have there privacy completly invated. people are always trying to bring them down with gossip…Mariah and Nick are not the 2 people i thought would ever be together but if they are in love…i say let them be =)

  50. allie says:

  51. Terrance says:

    they look a mess together this is just a cute picture. she shoulda turned him down the 2nd time also. now im a big mariah carey fan so im not hatting im happy that she thinks she found love or is happy for right now but it wont last. shes too big of a person to be with him. she needs a man! not a puppy dog and all the REAL “LAMBS” kno wut i mean we seen the postings on other sites. he’s her little puppy dog, he does wut she says, does her shopping, he looks like hired help that she married. it wont last and honestly i dont care.

  52. michelle says:

    how cute is that you and nick…………………

  53. Mz. Adams says:

    It shouldn’t took that many times for him to propose to her if she is really feeling him.

  54. jiimionad says:

    Yay! Interesting.

  55. Becky B. says:

    I think that Mariah and Nick make a great couple. There is only one problem, They need to stay out of the lime light with their relationship. What I mean is that their relationship would probably last longer if they kept everyone out of their private life. What they do or think about each other is really their business.
    I’m all for their relationship.I hope that their marriage last forever.
