Cardi is accused of orchestrating an attack on the Wattley sisters, who were bartending at the strip club in Flushing, Queens, during the incident.

Actor and show host, Nick Cannon has confessed that his former wife Mariah Carey is still mad at him for ‘breaking her rules’.

The duo was married between 2008-2016 and share 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

In the next episode of his talk show which airs on the 11th of October, Nick explained that he and his ex-wife had previously agreed that the youngsters would be old enough to have their own mobile phones when they turned 10. However, when the time came, Carey reportedly had doubts.

He said;

“My oldest twins Roc and Roe wanted a cell phone at 8. I was all for it but Mariah was like, ‘Uh huh…they ain’t going to be Googling us, learning about all their new brothers and sisters, no we ain’t playing’.

“I respected it at 8 but then we made a deal and said at 10 then they can have it, [but] Mariah still said no. So at 10, I snuck and I still got them the cell phones for their birthday.”

Recalling how Carey reacted when the gifts were opened, Nick said; 

“We had this amazing party with jump jumps. Their friends came, it was so amazing. Then [when] it was time to open the gifts, I was like ‘I’m going to leave these right here and tell your mama I’ll be back.’ Mariah is still mad at me till this day.”

The show host said he kept apologizing down the camera to his ex-wife, hoping that she’ll forgive him.

As well as the twins with Mariah Carey, the former Wild ‘N Out host has five other kids including another set of twins with Abby De La Rosa. The children, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir were born on June 14.
