Following the news that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have decided to sell their Bel Air mansion, rumours are rife that the couple are heading for divorce.

According to US sources, the 44-year-old diva and Nick, 33, are already embroiled in a $495 million divorce battle.

Although the reason for their marriage troubles is still unclear, it’s been suggested that Nick was struggling to deal with Mariah’s eccentric behaviour and demands.

These include: her desire to have a ‘commitment ceremony’ at Disneyland, the need to renew their vows every year, and wanting to move to NYC without considering his needs.

But it seems she wants the marriage over as much he as does, with a source telling a US magazine: “Mariah’d cut him loose right now. But she’s worried about him making a grab for a huge chunk of her $515 million fortune.”

When asked for a comment on his relationship, Nick allegedly told reporters that he wasn’t going to comment and that their three-year-old twins son Moroccan and daughter Monroe ‘come before everything’.

Imagine finishing work, having to take a long flight home and then being bombarded by questions when you stepped off of the plane.

Well that’s what happened to Rihanna this week. The 26-year-old singer had been busy rehearsing for Eminem’s Monster tour before flying back to New York.

When she arrived at JFK she was approached by fans who wanted pictures and autographs. As the video shows, Riri had some trouble exiting the airport before she snapped at one of her fans.

We can’t say we blame Rihanna – it must be tiring constantly having people surrounding you. Watch the video and judge for yourself.
