Mariah Carey Furious With Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey is furious with Nick Cannon after he made fun of her parenting skills on national TV. American Idol judge Carey lambasted Cannon after he spouted off on Anderson Cooper’s show Anderson Live about how he and the 43-year-old superstar are raising their 19-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
“The kids run the house. My wife is being the diva that she is. I’m trying to keep up with them,” he said.
When Cooper asked Cannon who changes more diapers, he proudly pointed to himself and saidm “Me!”
While he admitted they both get their hands dirty, he stressed, “I get that duty a little bit more.”
Mariah “was incensed,” an insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer. “Nick has made diva jokes before, but never relating to Mariah being a parent.
“Claiming he was the main diaper-changer made her feel like he was saying she was less than a perfect mother.
“She’s trying so hard to do well on American Idol and thinks this will make her look bad.
“Sometimes Nick lets his mouth run faster than his brain. But he should have known he was going to tick off Mariah with his parenting potshots.”
“Mariah used to revel in her diva reputation, but now that she’s a mom, she wants to be seen first and foremost as just that.
“What Nick said made her feel small, and he’s had hell to pay at home. Mariah considers parenting a 50/50 proposition and feels that she changes just as many diapers as Nick.
“She assured me Nick won’t be giving any more interviews like that, and she’ll even shut down his Twitter account before he makes a fool of her again.
“Nick knows that – and it’s put the fear of God into him!”
