HOLLYWOOD HILLS - Nick "The Candlestick" Cannon is not very happy these days. The host of America's Got Talent and a stand up comedian in his own right told Jay Leno that there is trouble brewing in his three year marriage.
Cannon, 31, who is married to the much older Mariah Carey, 43, said that it all started after Mariah had their twins babies Bippy and Bappy back in April.
Nick said that the whole argument centers around Mariah's personal trainer Bernie Coppalasanetti, a good looking, 24-year-old single guy who has touched Mariah's body more in just the past five and a half months than Nick has in the past two years.
It is no secret that the Grammy-winning singer gained a tremendous amount of weight during her pregnancy.
When Nick was asked by Margarita Mixx of The Tinsel Town Times Tribune how much weight Mariah had gained he said that he would rather not say.
Mixx excused herself and went to use the bathroom. While there she made a phone call to Ryan Seacrest who informed her that during her pregnancy Carey had gained an unbelievably whopping 178 pounds.
Seacrest further told Miss Mixx that the tremendous amount of weight gain has actually affected Mariah's singing voice. When asked how that could possibly be Seacrest said that Carey had gained about half a pound in each tonsil and that the tonsils were pushing against her vocal chords causing her voice to loose an octave.
Ryan noted that Mariah panicked and that is why she hired Mr. Coppalasanetti to be her personal trainer and to help her lose weight before she looses another octave range.
Meanwhile Nick is furious because Mariah is just totally smitten with Coppy "The Italian Stud" as she affectionately calls him.
Mixx learned that Coppy has started calling Mariah the "Tata Queen" but only when the two are alone in her bedroom exercising.
Coppalasanetti trains Mariah for six hours a day six days a week. Mixx heard that Coppy has even gotten a tattoo of Mariah's face on his crotch region, but that has not been confirmed as of yet.
Nick Cannon weighs 160. Mariah Carey weighs 185. Bernardo Coppalasanetti weighs 155. And Charles Barkley weighs 404.
