LOS ANGELES - Mariah Carey is riding on Cloud 9 as the stunningly attractive songstress has just signed a reported $18 million a year deal to replace J.Lo (Jennifer Lopez) on American Idol.
But all is not well in the Nick Cannon - Mariah Carey household. An unnamed, inside source, has told Tittle Tattle Tonight that there are definitely some fireworks being set off by both husband and wife.
And even neighbors report that late at night when all is quiet they can hear some shouting and yelling that makes Mr. and Mrs. Nick Cannon seem like the Hatfields and McCoys.
The reason for all of the unhappiness appears to be the fact that the host of America's Got Talent, Nick "The Pogo Stick" wanted his wife to become a judge on next season's AGT.
Cannon revealed to Pico de Gallo with 3T that he got it from a highly placed inside source of the show that Howard Stern will most probably not be returning to the show and Nick was hoping that Mariah would take over his judge's seat.
He said that it would work out great since he and his wife could see each other all the time and they would be able to have their 15-month-old twins Bippy and Bappy backstage in their dressing room.
But Cannon said that Riah, as he calls her, jumped the damn gun and took the American Idol job.
Nick confided to de Gallo if Mariah is not going to allow him to wear the pants in the marriage then maybe he needs to get out of the marriage and get into one where his new wife will let him wear the pants and run the show.
De Gallo politely reminded him that this is 2012 and it just doesn't quite work that way anymore. He also added, "Nicky, Nicky, you are married to one of the world's most sexiest, gorgeously sultry women. She's worth $500 million!!! Listen to me bro. Did you bump your friggin head or what?"
