NY Post Blind Item

WHICH songbird's hard-up husband is having a hard time paying off her $500,000 engagement ring? He tried to stiff the jeweler and when finally threatened with a lawsuit, said he'd pay - on an installment plan.

nick cannon/mariah carey

Ohhh I like the Jennifer Hudson guess... he's not a famous dude but he still gave her a huge ring, if my memory serves me right...

It's just me! said...

The BI says "husband" and Jennifer Hudson is still engaged at this point.

I think it's far too easy to be Nick/Mariah.

I like the Katharine McPhee I guess but I'm also going to throw out Mary J. Blige as a possibility. She married a no-name producer/manager not too long ago and I wouldn't be surprised if he's still trying to pay off a $500K loan.

My first thought was Nick and Mariah but I don't think she would wear anything under a million. So, I am still thinking.

READ JENNIFER PAID FOR THE RING HERSELF, THEN DID THEY MARRY ?

MontanaMarriott said...

I think this is Nick & Mariah since everytime they do a BI about her, they refer to her as "songbird"

Jenn said...

Nick/Mariah - already on Bossip :)

Nick/Mariah.

I know they are rich and famous and all, but still - who lets you walk about with half a million dollars of gems and no form of payment anywhere near the transaction?

Mel B (Scary Spice from the Spice Girls) husband. I think his last name is Belafonte or something?

Christine, I think it's worth it for the jeweler just to be able to say they sold Mariah's engagement ring. Free advertising.

I agree though Nick and Mariah seem to easy. He was trying out fancy cars right after they married, so I don't think he's still paying the layaway on a ring.

It's just me! said...

Good guess faithy! I was also thinking maybe Ashlee Simpson?

Bossip is a joke of a Web site when it comes to anything credible. Just saying.

Nick & Mariah--
He needs to ask for a raise in his allowance.

Cheryl said...

Bossip and Media Take Out are the worst "Black oriented" websites. They are rarely credible and the comment section is terrible. I don't think it's Mariah and Nick. She knows he doesn't have as much money as her and he seems happy to be the kept man.

Jill said...

I don't think it's Mariah and Nick; he has too many credits to his name to be considered "hard up." He may not be a mega millionaire, but I know the kid can easily afford a $500K ring.

Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams

jax said...

what about Country music?

500Gs's is way too 'poor' for Princess Mariah. she needs at least 5 carats.

DNfromMN said...

I can't imagine Mandy/Ryan having a 500k ring. I'd be surprised if the engagement ring weren't from a cracker jack box. *rimshot*

I'm thinking J-Lo/Marc. For some reason I want to say he was in debt before they got married.

Quintessential Southerner said...

remember, nick cannon has had homes ans cars reposessed before he married mariah. i don't know if she cleared his debt...

i still say nick cannon.

nick carey, of course

Pookie said...

it's not marc anthony. he may have 37 kids to feed, but the guy has bangin' bucks (see his ny & miami mansions, along w/ his fleet--yes, fleet--of phantoms and bentleys). he may not be well known in general market, but in latin mkt he is one of the elite-tier 1 artists, has been since the mid-90s. everything he touches turns to gold and sells out, way out. def not him. the debt probs i think you're regerring to, DN, are that a few yrs ago he owed the IRS $2M, but that was due to mgmt error and got taken care of quickly.

i'm gonna have to go w/ j-hud's man or nick cannon on this one.

Ryan said...

My first thought was Christina Aguilera's husband- I seem to remember her having quite the rock and I think he's only a producer or something like that.

Ms.Leigh said...

cannon popped into my mind before i was even halfway through this.

cmon, we all know he married her for money.

not on my dollar said...

It could be Nick and Mariah. I read on the Eonline website that the fiance of celebs. gets 50 to 75% off on the engagement ring.

If he got 75% off for the ring it was cost at least 2 million.

Jungle007 said...

My first thought was also Christina and Jordan Bratman, but then I remembered Nick Cannon and Mariah and how many times I've heard her referred to as a songbird. I'm torn between the two.

Jasmine said...

I know it's not McPhee. her ring only costs $100k. I just looked it up. I'm going for Aguilera here.

Caroline said...

Didn't Nick Canon recycle Mariah's ring? I thought he had given it to his ex-fiancee first, got it back when they broke up, then gave it to Mariah.
