The Grammy-award winning singer joined the ‘Idol’ judging panel in an $18 million deal. The couple’s friend said that Carey took the job because it would allow her to have more time with their children. Sources said Cannon’s remarks belittled her efforts.
“Sometimes Nick lets his mouth run faster than his brain,” the couple’s friend disclosed. “But he should have known he was going to tick off Mariah with his parenting potshots.”
Although Carey has a history of basking in her diva-like reputation, her friends believe that’s all changed since she’s become a mother.
“What Nick said made her feel small, and he’s had hell to pay at home. Mariah considers parenting a 50/50 proposition and feels that she changes just as many diapers as Nick,” the insider said.
Friends said Carey is now making sure her husband never mocks her mothering skills in the media again and has even threatened to delete his Twitter account.
“Nick knows that–and it’s put the fear of God into him,” their friend said.
