Nick Cannon's dad, James Cannon, wants his son to save the six-year marriage. “If Nick could have somehow ran Mariah's business or worked in conjunction with her they would have been such a power couple in Hollywood. It’s difficult, but look at Beyonce and Jay Z… If that means Nick needed to step aside from his business and taken a lead on Mariah’s work then I think it would have pushed them on a whole new level,” James told Page Six.
Insiders tell Daily News Confidential,“Mariah Carey was devastated when her latest album, ‘Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse,’ sold just 100,000 copies, and is blaming Nick. She turned down lots of opportunities to put her personal life ahead of her career and he didn’t. He takes every job he is offered.” .
