Carey-Cannon Kerfluffle

Carey-Cannon Kerfluffle

Are Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon already spending unnecessary time apart?

The couple, who have been married less than two years, were in Las Vegas on Feb. 27 as Carey closed her Angel’s Advocate tour at Caesars Palace. However, instead of celebrating together after the show, they headed in completely different directions.

Money may have had something to do with it, since both parties were heavily promoted appearances—but maybe not.

Either way, the separate nightlife vacations came on the tail of a tabloid firestorm, when a source close to Cannon said Mr. Carey wants his sweet-singing wife to put down the champagne and check herself into rehab. Still, there was no shortage of champagne on Saturday and the Perrier-Jouët flowed freely in the VIP at Haze after Carey finally arrived at 1:15 a.m. (She was about an hour late, but that was nothing for the less-than-punctual singer, who delayed her performance earlier that evening at the Colosseum by 90 minutes.)

Ever the diva, Carey still managed to make an entrance. She rolled in with a massive entourage of nearly 50 people and immediately took over a special section of the VIP that had been reserved for her and her crew.

Meanwhile, Cannon was across town, holding down his portion of the night’s party—and there was no shortage of help for him at the Hard Rock Hotel. Several young and restless women were at Vanity and suffice to say many of them were extremely eager to help him get the party started, so to speak.

Perhaps that’s why Carey didn’t stay at Haze all that long. She was only there for about an hour before she rushed off, suddenly determined to meet up with Cannon.
