Nick Cannon is suing mad at Mariah Carey's business manager Michael Kane. Why? Cannon is claiming that Kane sold the couple's home without his knowledge!
According to legal documents obtained by E! News, the America's Got Talent host has filed a lawsuit against Kane over the sale of his and Carey's $9 million Bel-Air home (the 6-bedroom, 9-bath property was originally listed for $12,995,000 million). Cannon claims he was not informed of the house's sale or of the closing date until Feb. 24.
While the 34-year-old has "no objection" to selling the home, Cannon alleges his "initial efforts to obtain copies of the Purchase and Sale Agreement and other documents pertinent to the transaction were rebuffed by Kane."
The docs also claim Cannon "has yet to see the estimated settlement agreement nor has he been provided with any information about required closing costs and loan payoffs, and other planned disbursements from escrow."
Cannon is seeking a trust be placed on the sale proceeds from the house until proper accounting for distribution of the sales proceeds. In addition, Cannon is seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against Kane from obtaining, disbursing or using any of the funds from escrow of the home.
Cannon filed for divorce from Carey back in January after six years of marriage.
