Nick Cannon has paid an emotional tribute to his estranged wife Mariah Carey on Mother’s Day with a heartfelt message to the singer, along with a photo of her with their twins.
He wrote on Instagram: “Gotta represent for the Mother of my children. She is such a wonderful, thoughtful, festive, loving and nurturing Soul.
“I will forever be in debt to you for blessing me and the rest of the world with Roc & Roe. A true #Queen Will love you always @MariahCarey #HappyMothersDay.”
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon filed for divorce in December 2014.
However, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have been increasingly interactive with each other on social media over the last month.
When their kids Moroccan and Monroe turned 4 in April on their sixth wedding anniversary, Nick Cannon posted on Instagram: “Grateful and forever in debt to @MariahCarey for blessing me and the rest of the world with these 2 Angels, Morrocan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon on this day 4 years ago. Happy Birthday!!! I Love yall!”
Just one day before that, Nick Cannon also plugged Mariah Carey’s new album, even though some interpreted her single “Infinity” as a diss towards him. Cannon, however, wrote on Instagram: “#TheQueen #NoHate #HardestWorkingWomanIKnow.”
Nick Cannon has sued Mariah Carey’s business manager Michael Kane for selling the couple’s home without his knowledge, TMZ has reported.
Nick Cannon, 34, has filed a lawsuit against Michael Kane over the sale of his and Mariah Carey’s $9 million Bel Air mansion (the 6-bedroom, 9-bath property was originally listed for $12,995,000 million).
According to legal documents, the America’s Got Talent host claims he was not informed of the house’s sale or of the closing date until February 24, E! News reported.
While he has “no objection” to selling the home, Nickk Cannon alleges his “initial efforts to obtain copies of the Purchase and Sale Agreement and other documents pertinent to the transaction were rebuffed by Kane”.
The documents also claim Nick Cannon “has yet to see the estimated settlement agreement nor has he been provided with any information about required closing costs and loan payoffs, and other planned disbursements from escrow”.
Nick Cannon is seeking a trust be placed on the sale proceeds from the house until proper accounting for distribution of the sales proceeds.
In addition, Nick Cannon is seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against Michael Kane from obtaining, disbursing or using any of the funds from escrow of the home.
Nick Cannon filed for divorce from Mariah Carey in January 2015 after six years of marriage.
Nick Cannon has altered the Mariah Carey tattoo on his back.
Nick Cannon, who recently announced he and Mariah Carey secretly separated a few months ago, got his estranged wife’s first name inked across his shoulders in large letters shortly before they tied the knot in 2008.
According to new reports, Nick Cannon recently had the tattoo transformed into an elaborate image of Jesus Christ.

Nick Cannon, who has three-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with the 44-year-old singer, debuted his new artwork as he celebrated his upcoming 34th birthday on October 8 with friends, including Amber Rose, at the Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood on October 2.
According to TMZ.com, Nick Cannon’s new tattoo shows Jesus Christ on the cross with angel wings coming off the end the crucifix.
It is not yet known whether Mariah, who got Mrs. Cannon inked on her back before their wedding, plans to change or remove her tattoo.
Nick Cannon announced his split from Mariah Carey in August, saying: “There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months. My main focus is my kids.”
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their wedding vows by shutting down Disneyland in Anaheim, California, to walk down the aisle for a fifth time in a lavish fairytale-themed ceremony.
Mariah Carey, 43, was transformed into a princess for her special evening, arriving in front of the iconic Magic Kingdom castle in a horse-drawn pumpkin-shaped carriage that wouldn’t have looked out of place in a scene from Cinderella.
Having the opportunity to wear yet another wedding gown, the singer donned a typically over-the-top corseted ivory dress, featuring a dramatic ruffle detail skirt and train.
Wearing her hair swept up into a half beehive, Mariah Carey adorned her head with a glittering diamond tiara, which she teamed with matching earrings and a sparkling necklace.

Posting a series of short videos on her Vine page, Mariah Carey could be seen getting ready for her fifth big day alongside her 2-year-old daughter Monroe.
Monroe wore a princess-inspired white gown, which would have no doubt made her the absolute envy of the playground.
Instead of the glittering diamond headpiece her mother was wearing, Monroe had white ribbons in her hair as she joined in the celebrations.
Poking fun at her “diva” reputation, Mariah wrote on her Twitter page: “Slowly making our way to the freezing cold guests #donthatemebecauseimadiva #cinderella.”
Before later adding alongside a video of her and Monroe: “Mommy and princess Monroe.”
Mariah Carey and little Monroe were then seen making their way to the Disneyland ceremony in a giant pumpkin-shaped carriage pulled by two white horses as the visibly emotional star wiped away the tears from her eyes.
She tweeted: “On our way to renew our vows. I love you @NickCannon shut down Disneyland KKLB.”
Nick Cannon – dressed as Cinderella’s Prince Charming – only appeared in the selection of videos very briefly, and was seen holding hands with the couple’s son Moroccan, who was dressed in a mini white tuxedo, as the carriage carrying Mariah and Monroe pulled up.
The picture-perfect family then made their way down the aisle in front of a selection of close friends and relatives as the couple toasted their fifth wedding anniversary in dramatic style.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon raised eyebrows when they tied the knot on April 30, 2008, at the singer’s private estate in the Bahamas after just six weeks of dating.
Since then, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have renewed their vows in a variety of locations, including Las Vegas, the hospital bed after she gave birth to the twins and most recently, Paris.
Mariah Carey seems to have a higher appreciation for the merry season now that she can share the cheer – and her lavish lifestyle – with husband Nick Cannon and their 20-month-old fraternal twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
Mariah Carey, 42, posted numerous candid snaps of Monroe and Moroccan, affectionately known as “Dem Babies”, enjoying their Aspen holiday Wednesday.
“MERRY CHRISTMAS from the Carey-Cannons!! Pictures from our most festive Christmas yet,” Mariah Carey tweeted to her 8.4 million followers.
The notorious diva and the America’s Got Talent host – dressed as Santa – looked ecstatically happy as they snuggled their toddlers before the Christmas tree littered with gifts at their tastefully rustic cabin in the wintry mountain town.
Nick Cannon, 32, clearly loves to lift his little girl in the air as he is seen doing so in two of the pictures, one of which reveals several opened presents under the Douglas Fir.
Among the numerous items visible on the floor were two luggage trollies, an Etch-A-Sketch, and a toy truck.
At their lavish black-tie birthday party earlier this year, the tots were gifted a toy Ferrari, rocking horse, and miniature white piano while celebrating at the Plaza Athenee in Paris.
Inside Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s magical white Christmas with twins Monroe and Moroccan
The two privileged tykes are often seen in designer duds playing on their parents’ grand piano, 1,000-thread count sheets, or taking a dip in their marble-tiled swimming pool.
Mariah Carey, whose net worth was estimated at more than $500 million last year, spares no expense when it comes to spoiling her brood.
However, most of the recent holiday pictures show the family indulging in mostly ordinary, wholesome holiday fun.
In several shots, the entire grinning clan is bundled up in fur-lined snowsuits enjoying a cuddle puddle on the snowy ground.
And while Mariah Carey accented her suit with a Louis Vuitton scarf and Nick Cannon wore a playful Scoobie Doo beanie – Roc and ‘Roe accessorized their suits with matching teddy bear scarves.
The twins could not hide their delight as they sat together in a red sled, and in one shot little Moroccan considerately pulled his sis along behind him.
The girly-girl made sure to matcher her soft pink snowsuit with her glasses frames.
Moroccan looked super-cute with a green star decoration stuck on his forehead and in another shot his famous parents propped him up behind the driver’s seat of a car.
Monroe also got glamorous in a classic red puffed-sleeve holiday dress with Peter Pan collar, matching pigtail bows, and white ruffled socks with black patent leather Mary Janes.
But in most of the shots the children are dressed for bed, with the boy comfortably splayed out on a bed in blue footie pajamas covered in woodland critters.
While Monroe was seen in green polka-dot PJs as she gave a stuffed reindeer decoration an affectionate hug.
Mariah Carey was last seen on Christmas Eve wearing a too-tight green leather jacket and high-heeled platform boots for one final shopping spree, while her husband and kids stayed at home playing Connect 4.
She will soon return to the set of the 12th season of American Idol, which premieres January 16, alongside judges Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.
Mariah Carey is also working on her new album, due out in March.
Nick Cannon revealed wife Mariah Carey always tries to get out of changing their toddlers’ nappies.
The funnyman says Mariah Carey usually finds a way to make sure he is the one left holding the dirty diapers after 18-month old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
Speaking on Anderson Live, Nick Cannon, 31, told the show’s host: “It’s a good time! Right now, the kids run the house. We are just running and chasing after them and then my wife is being the diva that she is. I am trying to keep up with them.”
When the newsman asked if the Glitter favorite was “a big diaper changer” and “who changes the most?” Nick Cannon’s response was perhaps no surprise.
He gave a hearty laugh as he said: “Me,” raising incredulous guffaws from Anderson.
The America’s Got Talent host added: “I mean we all do it but for some reason I get that duty a little bit more.
“I am not scared of it. I go in, I put the gloves on. Real men change diapers!”

While Anderson did not look too keen on the idea, his co-host Jane Velez-Mitchell gave a supportive grin.
Later the radio host spoke about of his wife’s reported feud with fellow American Idol judge Nicki Minaj.
He said: “Think it was what it was. A lot of theatrics and stuff.
“I guess I was a little disappointed in the producers because that’s not what American Idol is about.
“I felt like they fed off of it a little bit. You know, people are always going to have disagreements and stuff.
“Clearly you can see that they are a very intense judging panel but obviously everybody is interested in what the show is going to be about and my wife is the classiest and the strongest woman that I’ve ever met so she’s handling it the way she is supposed to handle it.”
Mariah Carey and her husband of four years Nick Cannon offered a candid glimpse into their home life with their fraternal twins, as they posted a series of snaps on the youngsters’ official website.
In the intimate pictures spanning six months, Moroccan and Monroe are seen flaunting their designer duds on a balcony, splashing in the posh pool, and getting snuggles from their doting parents.
In one amusing shot, little ‘Roc is seen covering his face while clad in Ralph Lauren, and little ‘Roe struts along in her diva shades and cute red dress featuring butterflies – her famous mother’s favorite insect.

Yesterday two pictures emerged of Mariah Carey’s 13-month-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, as they hitched a ride on a red wagon, as well as their beaming mother.
Monroe and Moroccan looked absolutely adorable wearing matching white jumpers as they clung to either side of Mariah Carey’s slimmed-down figure in an image released by her fan site Team Mariah.
Mariah Carey, 42, carried her fraternal twins in a dark dress, black patent leather peep-toe heels, and bug-eyed sunglasses only a mega star could pull off.

It’s not the first time she’s worn the two-tone ski pants – she was spotted in the same pair while in Aspen over Christmas.

“By living just a little healthier, you can make a difference,” Mariah Carey added.

The charming twins, Moroccan and Monroe look like they are on cloud nine as they recline on a giant white sofa with an array of colourful balloons behind them.
There are also some inflated letters spelling out their joint nickname “Dembabies” – which Mariah Carey and father Nick Cannon affectionately call them.
