Nick Cannon files for divorce
Hello Naija Living readers I’m happy to be bringing you my weekly scoop. Kicking it off this week is Nick Cannon being the first to run to the court house and file for divorce. If you don’t recall, the couple (Nick and Mariah) split in mid 2014 with both of them saying it was a ‘mutual choice’. Cannon filed for divorce on December 12th. Mariah has reportedly been working on a property settlement for the couple in advance of Nick making the first step to go to court first.
Back in August, we saw the couple out and about without their wedding rings; sources have said that the couple were living apart for months. In the separation Mariah, has set her focus on her career by signing the dotted line on an artist in residence deal in Las Vegas, where she will be at Caesar’s Palace performing an 18 song set list of all her number 1’s.
Throughout the separation, Mariah remained in her Manhattan apartment with the couple’s children, twins Moroccan and Monroe, while Nick has been staying in hotels. Mariah’s professional life was reported as one of the reasons the couple decided to call quit on the relationship. Back in September, Cannon took to twitter to set the public straight “I love Mariah Carey and that will never change!!!!” in a series of 20 posts, he also stood behind her defending her motherhood saying she’s a great mother, but not so much a great wife. “When things don’t go so well career-wise, sometimes you turn on your other half,” refering to the shocking sales of her most recent album, ‘Me. I Am Mariah’ which was released in May 2014.
The couple shocked fans with a secret wedding in the Bahamas back in 2008. They renewed their vows back in 2013 for their fifth anniversary. The reps for each of the artists are not commenting on the couple’s personal life at the moment.
Tyga reality show
Have you ever wondered what Tyga gets up to when he’s not entreating us with his antics or in catchy music videos? Well…. now’s your chance as Tyga has just been given his own reality show with MTV. The rapper is always surrounded by women, cars and money now that’s something worth seeing.
Although we undoubtedly will be seeing women, there is one we reportedly won’t be seeing. TV star Kylie Jenner. The reason behind this is the simple fact that the show is targeting to show Tyga ‘Bro-ing’ out and not really his personal life, so don’t expect to see his Ex Blac Chyna either. It’s really just about showing Tyga hanging out with his famous friends, having a good time showing us his fun side.
Tyga has had issues this past year, broadcasting through twitter and interviews that he’s not in agreement with his record label YMCMB, he also split with girlfriend and baby mother Blac Chyna. So all in all he’s trying to rebrand himself by showing the world he’s not the punk people make him out to be. Good luck to Tyga I will be watching to see what he gets up to.
This week, Usher announced his recent engagement to long time love and manager Grace Miguel. The 36 year old singer has not replied to any of the request to speak out regarding the engagement; however fiancée Grace has been seen around sporting a big piece of bling on her finger. “They are extremely happy and the way it was done was very sweet and romantic.” A source told E! Adding that the proposal took place a week and a half ago, “He can’t wait to spend the rest of his life with her. His boys love her as well! She gets along with them great.” Usher has primary custody of the two sons Usher Raymond V (7) and Naviyd Eli (6), which he shares with ex wife Tameka Foster; the two are now locked in a vicious custody battle.
In the October profile in Billboard, Usher spoke about his new fiancé, we know that she has been managing him for the last 3 years, for what else was said he sounds really fond of his new wife to be. “I have an incredible partner and manager,” he said of Grace “She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and career.”
In the article in Billboard Usher explained what he loved about her and why he chose to keep his relationship private. “She’s someone who has been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or a singer, but as a humanitarian and a businessman and a person,” he continued saying “One thing that has come from having a great partner like Grace is being able to cherish the place that I’ve gone. We see the monumental sites, go to the museums, and eat in the best restaurants. I’m that guy now! In the past I’d do what I have to do and get on the bus to the next city. Life has become a vacation. Bon voyage.”
I wish all the best for Usher on his new life commitment, it seems like even his ex wife Tameka is happy for him; she reportedly agreed that the boys can not only go to the wedding but they can actually be in the wedding. So congratulations to the happy couple and I hope it works out great for everyone.
