Mariah Carey

Muzzles Nick in Divorce!

8/22/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Mariah Carey has gagged Nick Cannon -- but not in a good way. He's not allowed to say boo about their divorce ... or else.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Nick and Mariah's lawyers hashed out a confidentiality agreement as part of their divorce ... and it's completely one-sided.  

Nick is barred from saying anything about the split.  If he does, there are severe financial penalties. But Mariah has the right under the agreement to announce the split on her terms. 

Nick is clearly following orders ... check out the video from NYC Thursday -- he zipped it.

Nick is allowed to say they're now living separately ... which he's already done. But he cannot say anything about the divorce.

As TMZ first reported ... the divorce is a "done deal" ... the property settlement and child custody have already been hashed out.

I'll bet that the trade-off for Nick's silence is that he got to keep more money or property. Nobody cares to hear the details of a divorce anyway.

When kids are involved, I think BOTH parents needs to STFU. So many use TMZ (Halle Berry etc.) and other rags to spin the other party in a negative (and usually false) way.

It also states in the agreement that she can eat whatever she wants until the pain goes away

She's too much to take day in and day out . I'm sure it's cool to be with her for a fling but to put of with all her diva/drama for a long time, her GLITTER just runs out . What ever happened to that beautiful humble person with a lovely voice and shy deamenor I saw on arsenio hall show? That person is long gone I guess.

Glad Mariah put a muzzle on Nick's big mouth. He should not bad mouth the mother of his children. Nick is fooling himself if he thinks his career would be where it is now if he had not married Mariah. While married to Mariah he was looking classy, now he'll revert to the arse he truly is.

Sounds like a civilized way of doing things. More of these divorcing Hollywood couples would wisely include similar stipulations in their divorces.

Like I said before they are to different people with two different mindsets. Honestly, they got married too fast.
