Nanny Sues Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon


Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may be getting divorced, but they’re gonna have to hang out soon, because they’re being sued by their former nanny…

Why? Because Simonette DaCosta- the nanny in question- said she showed too much affection to their twins!  TMZ said that DaCosta, who was the full-time nanny when the kids were just infants, said that the twins loved her and it did NOT sit well with Mariah.

Wow, Mariah getting beligerent. Who would have thunk it?

DaCosta claims the singer berated her for showing too much affection, meaning she was jealous because the kids dug their nanny more than their banshee of a mom. DaCosta also claims she was worked too hard…like an upwards of 90 hours in a week.

She wants back pay and other damages…and maybe a cut of Mariah’s Vegas Money? Oh wait, that’s Nick.

Nick Cannon Won The Divorce Race

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Attend the 2012 Project Canvas Exhibition and Art Gala

While Mariah Carey celebrated her new and lucrative Vegas residency, Nick Cannon was busy at the courthouse.

According to TMZ, Cannon has quietly filed for divorce, originally filing papers on 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 that point, 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.

Mariah and her cadre of lawyers have been pretty deft about squaring away a deal- she’s artfully detached Nick from her new, awesome Vegas opportunity. Smart girl!

It’s Official- Mariah Carey Gets HUGE Vegas Payday!

Mariah Carey Announces The Launch Of Her Go N'Syde Bottle 'Butterfly'

Mariah Carey really won the jackpot on this deal!

After almost being there and lots of speculation, the singer has officially signed on as the newest resident diva in Las Vegas. TMZ reports that Mariah snuck into Vegas last week to seal the deal. Need proof? TMZ has video of Carey and her entourage leaving the Palace Cheesecake Factory, escorted by security.  

Wow, the cheesecake factory? Classy.

Carey is taking the Caesar’s Palace slot formerly held by Celine Dion, who is on break to care for her husband.  Marah will probably be in Vegas all year until Celine returns.

And of course, the deal is GINORMOUS. Where Britney Spears rakes in $475K a show, Mariah will be getting at least that and maybe even more!

Mariah Carey Heads To Las Vegas For New Residency

Mariah Carey Throws Lyrical Shade At Nick Cannon

Pack your bags, Mariah Carey fans, this bird’s going to sin city!

E! News confirms that Mariah Carey is completing paperwork on a residency deal with an unnamed hotel that will have her singing regularly to thousands of fans.

Carey joins a long list of famous stars who have secured successful residency gigs in Las Vegas, most recently Britney Spears, with Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino that earned her nearly $30 million for two years. Though this deal was in talks just a couple days ago, it’s almost officially complete!

Though we also reported Mariah might be making more money than Britney, a  source shot that info down: saying Carey’s deal is nowhere near the “I’m a Slave 4 U” singer’s cash money contract.

Nick Cannon must be happy she’ll be Vegas bound for a bit…?
