The glamorous diva and her backing dancer Tanaka grew close late last year in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of Mariah’s engagement to billionaire James Packer. In February this year, the singer went public with the relationship after three months of dating.

Cannon claims he's in hot water with NBC over a joke he made in a separate Showtime stand-up special.
‘America’s Got Talent’ host Nick Cannon has dropped a strong hint that he’s about to walk away from the show, posting a lengthy update via his official Facebook page mentioning “dignity” and “integrity”.
The comedian, who has hosted the NBC reality competition for 12 seasons since 2009, claims that networks execs are threatening to fire him over a joke he made about race in a recent Showtime stand-up comedy special.

There's no hostility between these exes.
Nick Cannon proved that he and ex Mariah Carey are still on good terms, despite rumours that the TV presenter has infuriated the singer by deliberately dragging out divorce proceedings. Nonetheless, he posted a Father's Day snap of the pair with their children Monroe and Moroccan looking pretty happy indeed.
Nick Cannon insists he and Mariah Carey are still good
Last week, Nick Cannon launched a freestyle rap called 'Divorce Papers', describing the real situation between him and Mariah, his antipathy towards those suggesting there's any animosity between them and praising his children for their 'resilience'. He also denies that he's refusing to sign off the divorce papers officially.
Cannon and Carey are said to have still not finalised their divorce after nearly two years.
Nick Cannon has opened up about his divorce from Mariah Carey in new freestyle track ‘Divorce Papers’. The couple separated in 2014 and have two children together, twins Monroe and Moroccan, but Cannon says they're still on good terms.
Nick Cannon has released a new freestyle titled ‘Divorce Papers’.
Cannon released the track on KarenCivil.com along with a lengthy explanation about the song. “My purpose for creating this ‘Divorce Papers’ freestyle was not to feed the tabloid chatter, or even to diffuse it,” he explained. “This was strictly a creative way for me to express my frustrations with the media, the naysayers, myself and ultimately with the voices in my head.”

Carey just wants to move on and marry new beau James Packer.
It is not unusual for a divorce to take a matter of years to finalize, but the legal marriage between Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey is purportedly lasting much longer than necessary because the TV presenter is just refusing to sign his half of the petition.
Does Nick Cannon still love Mariah Carey?
Despite the fact that the 'America's Got Talent' host initially filed for the divorce himself in December 2014 after being separated from his wife since August of that year, he is now neglecting to take the last step in order to allow Mariah Carey to marry her new fiance, billionaire investment magnate James Packer, according to reports.

Nick Cannon may be set to divorce Mariah Carey, but we doubt it'll affect her cash flow.
It doesn't come as a surprise looking at reports over the last few months with their separation and all, but it seems that Nick Cannon has finally filed for divorce from his diva wife of six years Mariah Carey.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's marriage is finally over
According to reports in TMZ, Cannon officially filed for divorce before Christmas on December 12th 2014 proving the worst that fans could imagine, they won't be getting back together. It was saddening enough to hear that the pair had split towards the end of the summer last year, but Cannon's later praising of Carey (even admitting he loved her and being terribly upset over apparent nasty messages being sent to her from his fans) suggested that there may still be hope for the couple.

Nick Cannon has his 'Mariah' tattoo covered, as unpleasant rumours continue to circle.
Hollywood's latest high-profile split is causing a flurry of uncomfortable rumours to fly around, as Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon separate after months of living apart and Cannon is quick to cover his Mariah themed tattoo.
Nick Cannon covers Mariah tat, but wants to be the 'best person [he] can be'
We couldn't help but reel from the burn of the 'American Idol' host getting his tattoo covered so quickly. What was once a shoulder-spanning tribute to his wife is now becoming a large crucifix, which definitely suggests things are final between the pair. Cannon tried to keep things light when ET Online questioned him about it, insisting, 'When it's done, I'll show up to your house naked and I'm going to let you see all the work. I'm not even half way done with it.' He did admit, however, that the public spectacle that is his love life has been difficult to deal with. 'You want to say certain things or lash out', he said. 'Sometimes public opinion wants to paint you a certain way.'
The 'America's Got Talent' judge took Twitter to vent his anger at false media reports during "this challenging time" for his family.
Last month many reports started surfacing that claimed Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey's six year marriage was finally over, but the acutal reason for this has not yet been confirmed and so far both stars have kept relatively quiet on their relationship status until now.
Cannon and Carey have allegedly ended their six year marriage
It seems the 'America's Got Talent' host couldn't stay tight lipped any longer, on Wednesday night (Sept 3rd) Cannon took to social media and posted twenty tweets addressing "this challenging time" for his family.
As their marriage takes a tumble, both Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon admit their children come first
The public is used to Hollywood marriages coming and going with the words ‘irreconcilable differences’ a showbiz phrase that glosses over the most controversial of splits. What very rarely happens, however, are revelations of truth by the famous individuals involved in very public relationship breakdowns - this is until Nick Cannon rolled on the scene.
The 33-year-old actor and television personality recently very openly admitted that he and his songstress wife, Mariah Carey, are struggling and stated that "there is trouble in paradise...we have been living in separate houses for a few months."

Bad news - Carey and Cannon's marriage isn't as solid as it seemed.
Some couples, like Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, just look like they’ll be together forever. Not so, unfortunately, as the pair have been dogged by divorce rumours for a couple of weeks now. Recently, Cannon himself confirmed the rumours, saying for The Insider: “There is trouble in paradise…we have been living in separate houses for a few months," Cannon told The Insider. "...My main focus is my kids.”
Is there trouble in the Carey-Cannon household?
The pair have been married since 2008 and had two twin boys – Morroccan and Monroe – in 2011. They chose to name Monroe after Marilyn Monroe, and Moroccan, after the location in which Cannon proposed to Carey in her Moroccan-style room.
The 'America's Got Talent' host chose a controversial way of promoting his new album.
Singer Nick Cannon has been slammed by social media users after he unveiled his controversial new persona, Connor Smallnut, designed to promote his new album, White People Party Music. The America's Got Talent host and husband to Mariah Carey "whited up" and adopted a skater styling to play the character, communicated via the pop star's Instagram page.
Nick Cannon Has Been Hit By Outraged Reactions After "Whiting Up" For A New Persona.
Cannon has been labelled "racist," "ignorant" and "hypocritical" for the stunt after pictures of him dressed as Connor hit the web on Sunday. "It's official. I'm White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!!" he wrote, adding "#GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft "Bro I got drafted!!" alongside one image.

Mariah Carey posed in a bath filled of glitter and balloons wearing nothing but a candy bikini as a means of promoting her single 'You're Mine (Eternal) and ensuring she had a romantic Valentine's Day weekend with her husband of almost 7 years, Nick Cannon.
Titillation could not be a more accurate word for Mariah Carey's Valentine's Day plans. Particularly as Carey was certainly showing a great deal of cleavage and leg whilst she relaxed in a balloon bubble bath, dressed in a candy bikini and drinking champagne.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have been married since 2008.

Mel confirms that she is wearing Stella McCartney as she flaunts a scarlet fishtail gown before one photographer asks if she is sad about comedian Taylor Williamson not winning.

She is fine."
Where funny people play party games, while you sit at home and watch.
At the tail end of her run as Mrs Hannigan in Annie, Jane Lynch is launching her brand new endeavor – Hollywood Game Night. It’s pretty much what it sounds like – a night of party games, banter and lots of competitive spirit. What makes this different to your average Friday night is that on this show, six of the eight contestants are celebrities.
Jane Lynch loves a good game night.
When you have Fred Armisen and Matthew Perry competing in a mutant version of charades, it’s bound to be a funny experience, but what Lynch thinks is so special about this show is that the viewer at home gets to feel like part of the action – especially if they have a drink or two while watching Game Night. When she was asked by TIME Magazine whether contestants should come in caffeinated, Lynch answered: “Or slightly tipsy. Either way” In one promo she even suggests that viewers at home invent a make a drinking game out of watching the show.

Wild'n Out returns to MTV with the same premise and brand new faces.
A revival of Nick Cannon’s MTV comedy series Wild’n Out is finally happening. The reboot has reportedly been in the works for a long time, but it is only now that Cannon has taken the time out to actually work on it, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This time, however, the producer, actor and host of the comedy series will create the season for sister network MTV2.
Cannon worked on the show in his break from hosting America's Got Talent.
According to Cannon, the revival is responding to a demand that has existed for a while. "People have been in talks about it for a long time, and I just had to really buckle down and say, "OK, I’m going to take the time out to actually do it,'" Cannon tells The Hollywood Reporter. The show’s premise is largely unchanged – two teams of celebrities will compete in a range of comedic challenges, ranging from freestyle rap battles to standup routines. The show will return with an updated cast and roster of guest performers, including the likes of Guy Code's Lil DuVal, Amar'e Stoudemire, Mac Miller, 2Chainz, Machine Gun Kelly, A$AP Rocky and Joe Budden.

Mariah Carey will still perform in Central Park on Saturday, despite her hospitalization.
Mariah Carey was hospitalized in New York on Sunday (July 7, 2013) after suffering an injury on the set of a video shoot for a remix version of her song '#Beautiful' with rapper Young Jeezy. The song features Grammy winner and amateur crowd-surfer Miguel and peaked at No.15 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Her representative told CBS News that Mariah went to hospital in New York after suffering a shoulder injury while shooting the video. It is not clear whether she fell, or was struck, though the singer's rep added that "doctors reset her shoulder" and that "she is fine". Some reports have suggested she may have tripped over while dancing in towering feels for the video - which is directed by Mariah's husband Nick Cannon - however this remains pure speculation.
The singer will still perform with the New York Philharmonic on Central Park's Great Lawn this Saturday. This show, for the 2013 MLB All-Star Charity Concert, will benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.
During her performance at the BET Music Awards on Sunday the singer appeared to be faking her singing parts.
Mariah Carey is being called out on her performance at the BET Music Awards on Sunday (June 30), with viewers complaining that the singer was clearly lip-syncing during her performance with singer Miguel and rapper Young Jeezy. Although it isn't uncommon for singers to lip-sync their parts at award shows that are prone to sound interruption and involve exhaustive dance routines, the singer has still been called out on her performance.
Mariah will have to defend herself against the accusations.
Just over a month after she had to deny lip-syncing a medley of her greatest hits during the American Idol finale, the singer has to answer to the naysayers once again. The singer was performing her new single '#Beautiful,' with a guest verse from Jeezy, and during the high-octane performance the singer seemed to be singing, on occasion, with the help of a backing track.
Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle made for the perfect backdrop for the couple to get re-hitched.
Mariah Carey went with a fairy tale theme for the renewal of her vows with hubby Nick Canon at (where else) the most magical place on earth. The couple, along with some 250 of their closest friends, closed down Disneyland for the day, presumably because it ain’t magical, if it isn’t exclusive.
"On our way to renew our vows. I love you Nick Cannon shut down Disneyland," Carey tweeted. "Celebrating our anniversary and dembabies birthday (can you believe they're 2??)."
Carey’s twin girls Morroccan and Monroe were born on April 30th 2011, exactly three years to the day after Carey and Canon’s wedding in 2008. Naturally, for the A-List family this means a chance to do things twice as big. According to Entertainment Tonight, via Reuters, the reception in the Disney theme park's Fantasyland area was adorned with 15,000 blooms and 10,000 crystals.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renew their vows at Disneyland, with lavish after-party
We’ve all heard of a fairytale wedding, but a fairytale vow renewal? Well, that’s news to us, that one. Still, that’s exactly the vibe that Mariah Carey (a grown woman, we hasten to add) decided to opt for when she and husband Nick Cannon renewed their vows at Disneyland last night (April 30, 2013).
Dressed as a princess, Mariah Carey celebrated her 5th anniversary with Nick at California Disneyland’s ‘Happiest Place On earth,’ and made the treat a joint 2nd birthday treat for their twins, Entertainment Tonight has reported. In the morning, Carey tweeted “On our way to renew our vows” and added “I love you @NickCannon. During the vow renewal, Carey wore a matching princess costume with her daughter Monroe and the mother and daughter were collected in a horse-drawn Crystal Carriage, from a Dream Suite inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. From there, they were taken to Main Street to meet Nick and Moroccan. Then off they all went to the Sleeping Beauty Castle to renew their vows. Sounds pretty sickly, huh?
250 of the couples friends and family were guests at the fairytale ceremony, which culminated in a pyrotechnics display over the castle’s spires. What followed was a lavish party, with Nick DJing (pretty normal) and 10,000 flowers imported from South Africa, Holland and France (not so normal). Oh and 10,000 crystals (even less normal).

Didn't get your fill with the last dose of State-side halftime entertainment, well the NBA All-Star Weekend is here to help, with the show's line-up trying its best to out do Beyonce and co. last Sunday.
Taking place in Houston on Feb. 16-17, the showcase will be an all-star event in more than just b'ball-ability terms. Alicia Keys will be holding down the reigns at the halftime performance, whilst Ne-Yo will be performing before the main event. John Legend will perform the United States national anthem before the game. On the Saturday before, the newly reformed Fall Out Boy will be providing the half-time entertainment, their first live performance sine their 2009 split, whilst Ellie Goulding will play before the game.
The entertainment isn't just resigned to the match schedule though, as the full weekend of entertainment will also see American Idol winner Phillip Phillips performing on Saturday during the day, which will coincide with the time-honoured Skills Challenge, the Three-Point Contest and Slam Dunk Contest — all of which will be presided over by Nick Cannon.

Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey's husband of three years, in response to his wife's death threats from Nicki Minaj on American Idol, told E! that he wasn't 'worried about that stuff' and referred to the whole ordeal as 'drama'.
Carey clearly doesn't share her husband's blasé approach to her safety, reportedly having hired extra security after last week's confrontation between the two musicians. Minaj erupted in a tirade of abuse directed at Carey and stormed off stage, allegedly saying "If I had a gun I'd shoot the bitch".
Cannon's judgement of the drama and 'theatrics' seem right on the money, as an American Idol spokesperson said "This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we've ever had... We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing, and we can't imagine a better group to find the next American Idol." If a murderous duo constitute as 'one of the best' judging panels, one wonders what genuinely would make 'the best'.
Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz wants to start a club for insomniacs after revealing he struggles to sleep.
You won't find any sort of rabblerousing or sense of time in Emilio Estevez's Bobby, his account of the people that were in attendance when Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel. Estevez tosses together close to two dozen major characters and storylines along with footage of RFK campaigning against racism, America's poverty, and unlawful McCarthy tactics. The stories run the gamut from a young couple (Elijah Wood and Lindsay Lohan) getting hitched to keep the groom out of the war to an alcoholic diva (Demi Moore) and her forgotten husband (Estevez himself) to a philandering hotel manager (William H. Macy) who must keep his affair with a switchboard operator (Heather Graham) from his wife (Sharon Stone) and from an infuriated ex-employee (Christian Slater). There's also a pack of poll campaigners (Nick Cannon, Joshua Jackson, Shia Labeouf, and Brian Geraghty) who must deal with an acid freak out facilitated by a hippie (Ashton Kutcher), a pushy Czech journalist (Svetlana Metkina), and a flirty waitress at the hotel restaurant (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Sounds like the makings of an ensemble comedy, no?

Every perfect and picturesque neighborhood - at least in the movies - has one: that creepy old house that fuels the nightmares and serves as the centerpiece of the double-dog dares for the local kids.
DJ (Mitchel Musso) has made the house his mission. He's set his bedroom up as home base to watch old Mr. Nebbercracker across the street, an irate curmudgeon (voiced by Steve Buscemi) who steals any balls or bikes that find their way into his yard, chases after kids to keep off his lawn, and, presumably, thinks the music kids listen to today is nothing but noise. Within an hour of DJ's parents leaving for the weekend, Nebbercracker is dead (from a heart attack during an apoplectic moment at finding DJ on his lawn) and DJ is finding out that the old coot might not have been the most dangerous part of the creepy old house, because the house itself is starting to... eat people.

Here we have a definite candidate for the year's worst picture, and it comes just a few weeks after director Marcos Siega's other failure, "Pretty Persuasion."
This time Siega shares the blame with star Nick Cannon, whose impressive breakout performance made 2002's "Drumline" such a surprise hit. Now Cannon co-produces and co-writes the "story" for "Underclassman," a kind of fifth-rate "Beverly Hills Cop" knock-off.
Cannon plays Tre Stokes, a smart aleck young black cop going undercover at a ritzy white high school to rout out a murderer. Of course, Tre's behavior gets him kicked off the force and so he must finish the job alone.
Continue reading: Underclassman Review
It's a rare treat when a movie that looks, from its synopsis and previews, to be formulaic tripe turns out to be fresh, spirited and truly entertaining. "Drumline" is just such a movie.
Built on the chassis of a sports-underdog plot, this energetic, hip, feel-good flick stars wiry, charismatic newcomer Nick Cannon as Devon, a cocky freshman marching band drummer from Harlem who arrives at Atlanta A&T expecting to become the campus king of sticks and snares without having to pay his dues.
The kid is a spectacular drummer, as he proves during an early audition scene. He flawlessly, boldly rat-a-tat-tats his way through the robust piece the bandleader (Orlando Jones) expected him to play, then adds a little solo on the end just to show off. It isn't long before he's butting heads with the drill-sergeant-like upperclassman who leads the drumline, and that guy's not about to let some snot-nosed hot shot treat his section like a back-up band for showboating solos.
