Mariah Carey has had a rough summer. Following her commercially disappointing album and divorce rumors regarding her six-year marriage to Nick Cannon, friends of the diva reportedly are concerned Mariah may experience another meltdown.
“She has a history of mental health issues,” an unnamed source tells Life & Style, referring to Mariah’s hospital stay for psychiatric care back in 2001.
Apparently, Mariah’s estranged husband wanted to end the marriage months ago but feared how Mariah would cope.
“Nick’s No. 1 goal is to get the kids into a healthy environment where they would have some sense of normalcy,” an insider adds.
Earlier this month, Cannon confirmed on Twitter that there were false reports circulating about their marriage. “For the record I NEVER have, nor will I make a statement regarding my marriage,” he tweeted before later adding, “While I would like to remain silent, I can no longer allow this to happen. I love @MariahCarey and that will never change!!!” The posts have since been deleted.
