Mariah Carey Drops Legal Petition Against Ex Nick Cannon Over Custody Of Their Twins 

Mariah Carey has had a change of heart.

According to RadarOnline, celebrity songstress Mariah Carey has decided that she won’t be fighting her ex-husband Nick Cannon in court over primary custody of their 11-year-old twins Monroe and Morocaan

As we reported, back in January, Mariah Carey overlooked the initial joint custody arrangement put in place when her union with television personality Nick Cannon ended after realizing he has plans on adding onto his ongoing family tree. As you may know the “Wild N Out” founder fathers 12 children with six different women.

In the past a source spoke out against Carey’s petition and claimed:

“The reality of the situation is that Monroe and Moroccan are usually with Mariah anyway.”

Carey is allegedly over Nick Cannon not having enough time for the children because of his other children. The source added:

“But she wants to put him on notice that he can’t just fly in and out of their lives while he attends to his other children. And she wants legal standing as the twins’ primary caregiver.” 

Carey, 54 and Cannon 42, got married in the Bahamas in 2008 – the same year they reportedly started dating. Three years later, the ex-couple became parents to their twins. After six years of marriage, they finalized their contentious divorce in 2014.
