Nick Cannon confirmed last week that he and wife Mariah Carey have indeed separated. Now his father James has waded into the fray, posting cryptic messages possibly referring to the couple’s marriage breakdown.
‘Here’s a thing, if the husband say no lies, and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do?’ the preacher recently wrote on his Facebook page, according to RadarOnline.
The senior Cannon posed a series of questions that could be a hint of the issues behind his 33-year-old son’s separation from the pop star.
‘Here a thing to talk about if the wife love sex and the man can’t stand making love to her. What should that women do? ‘Here a thing, if the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do?
‘If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she it anyways, what should that man do?’ he wrote. ‘Here a thing, if a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?’
His comments come after his son reportedly claimed that he walked out on his marriage to 44-year-old Mariah amid concerns for her ’emotional state’.
Nick recently confirmed reports of trouble in the couple’s six-year marriage as he admitted they are no longer living together with sources close to the performer telling TMZ that it was Nick’s decision to end their union and he is worried about their three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
According to TMZ: ‘Nick has made it clear to all involved … he’s deeply concerned about Mariah’s emotional state and is ending the marriage for the well being of their kids. He believes the environment around Mariah is toxic and fears for his kids.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for the stars for comment.
