Nick Cannon beat Mariah Carey to the courthouse … we’ve learned he has quietly filed for divorce.
The timing is interesting. We found out Nick filed papers December 12. The date is relevant because on December 2, Mariah showed up 3 hours late to tape a segment for the NBC tree-lighting special.
At the time we posted a story … Mariah was on the phone with her lawyers going over the terms of her property settlement. That syncs up with Nick filing papers a week later, after they hashed out a deal.
Short story … Mariah has completely detached Nick from her new, very lucrative deal in Vegas.
