Poor Mariah Carey has gone through a hell of a lot of drama as of late.
She’s split up from ex-fiance and bazillionaire James Packer and NOW it has been revealed that the father of her children Nick Cannon is expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.
The 36-year-old America’s Got Talent and Wild ‘n’ Out host made the announcement on Thursday during a stint on The Breakfast Club show on New York’s WWPR-FM.
He called Brittany a “special young lady” and told the radio show hosts, “I’ve got a baby on the way”.
Nick is also the father of five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe from his previous marriage to superstar singer Mariah.
He also mentioned his current relationship with Mariah, saying he was unaware that her recent engagement to billionaire James Packer has reportedly been broken off.
Mariah and Nick split up in 2014 after six years of marriage.
Nick reunited with Brittany – a TV presenter, actress and beauty queen who was named Miss Arizona in 2010 – in 2015, according to reports.
The two are not currently in a relationship, but he told the radio show that he would not refer to Brittany as his “ex”.
But that makes you an ex, surely?
Mariah is reportedly asking James for a $50 million settlement for the “emotional upheaval” of moving from New York to Los Angeles after their split.
She is also believed to have kept her $10 million engagement ring.
Since the high-profile split, Mariah has been linked with her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka and was spotted enjoying an intimate dinner with him in Hollywood according to Daily Mail Online.
Will her life ever be simple?
