It’s been a nightmarish summer for Mariah Carey, whose latest album tanked as her six-year marriage to Nick Cannon crumbled.
Now with divorce proceedings ahead, a source tells Life & Style those close to the star are concerned the singer could suffer another meltdown — just like the one she had before the release of her 2001 flop, Glitter.
“She has a history of mental health issues,” an insider tells Life & Style, referring to Mariah’s 2001 stay in a hospital for psychiatric care.
Another source tells Life & Style that Nick wanted to leave Mariah months ago but was fearful she’d have a meltdown if he ended things.
“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.
