Maybe there is still time to save this relationship!
While we're totally heartbroken over Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's separation, we're not the only ones.
Nick's dad, James Cannon, is speaking out about the split, the rumors, and what these two could've done to save their marriage before it started falling apart.
James addressed the cheating rumors plaguing Nick:
"Were temptations ever there with other women? Not for Nick, he genuinely loved the married life . . . But did that stop other women coming to him? Probably not. I know Nick tries really hard to stay focused and would say: ‘I’m with the most outstanding, gorgeous woman. I’ve hit the jackpot so why would I be with someone else?’"
That's just breaking our heart even more!
If the love was there, then what went wrong?? Well, Nick's dad thinks it might have involved business…or at least getting into business together could have made it better:
"If Nick could have somehow ran her business, or worked in conjunction with her, they would have been such a power couple in Hollywood. It’s difficult, but look at Beyoncé and Jay Z … The love is always going to be there, but they just don’t have that quality of time."
We did hear rumors that Mariah wasn't happy with Nick taking all the jobs he did over the years.
But maybe, just maybe, there is hope for this power couple because it sounds like Mariah is still in the picture:
"[She] was at our home two weeks ago, talking and laughing . . . I’ve never seen them argue."
Please let that mean a reconciliation is on its way!
We're just not ready to say farewell to this Hollywood romance!
