Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s whirlwind romance came to a halt when their marriage started to crumble. Despite welcoming twins Moroccan and Monroe, the couple couldn’t keep their relationship intact. They separated in 2014 and officially divorced in 2015.
However, in the face of their split, both Carey and Cannon have remained dedicated to their roles as parents. The couple is committed to co-parenting their twins with love, understanding, and harmony, putting their children’s well-being first. Having experienced a tumultuous childhood herself, Carey is adamant about ensuring that her own children grow up surrounded by love and stability, regardless of the circumstances of their parents’ relationship.
A Whirlwind Romance and a Wedding
In 2008, Mariah Carey took a chance on love once again, tying the knot with comedian and actor Nick Cannon. Unlike her previous marriage to the much older Tommy Mottola, this time, Carey chose a partner who was a decade younger. The couple's whirlwind romance was a breathtaking six weeks of passion and excitement before they decided to exchange vows in a picturesque Bahamian wedding ceremony.
Carey and Cannon made the bold decision to get matching tattoos as a symbol of their inseparable bond. However, as time would reveal, this romantic and seemingly everlasting gesture would eventually come to symbolize the impermanence of their union, casting a shadow over their once bright and promising future together.
A Billion-Dollar Goddess
Mariah Carey's successful career has not only brought her fame and fortune but has also led to some extravagant endeavors. One such instance occurred when she partnered with Gillette for their "Legs of a Goddess" advertising campaign. In order to protect her assets and emphasize her status as a celebrity, Carey made the bold move of having her legs insured for a staggering $1 billion.
This unusual yet headline-grabbing decision showcased the incredible value placed on her iconic image and the lengths she was willing to go to preserve her brand and reputation as a legendary diva in the entertainment industry.
A Co-Star Feud Erupts
In 2014, as Mariah Carey was grappling with her separation from Nick Cannon, her career hit a rough patch. Joining the cast of “American Idol,” she soon discovered that this decision was a massive mistake. From the very beginning, Carey and her co-star, rapper Nicki Minaj, were at odds. The tension between the two stars became highly publicized, with arguments and disagreements making headlines.
Carey later went on to describe her time on the show as "the worst experience of my life." She cited the constant feuding with Minaj and the toxic atmosphere it created as the main reasons for her dissatisfaction. Despite her immense talent and successful career, this stint on “American Idol” proved to be an incredibly challenging period for Carey.
A Record-Breaking Note
Mariah Carey has been known to make history many times in her life. And in March 2003 was a life-changing month for the singer since she managed to break a Guinness World Record for reaching the highest note ever sung by a human. This incredible feat happened when Carey was performing an unforgettable rendition of “Star-Spangled Banner.”
Her vocal ability astonished the world and became a standard for singers the world round. Hitting the record-breaking note was a pivotal moment in the diva’s career and one that cemented her as a music legend that dominated the industry. From then on, her decades-long career flourished beyond imagination.
