Nick Cannon Jealous Of Mariah Carey’s Friendship With Lenny Kravitz
Nick Cannon is reportedly furious that wife Mariah Carey wants musician Lenny Kravitz to join her as a judge on American Idol.
Trouble first started when Mariah decided to take to her Twitter account in an effort to convince Idol producers to consider Kravitz as a judge, as well as tweeting a photo of herself with the musician shortly after.
”Mariah and Lenny have been friends since they were young,” revealed a source. ”They had a crush on each other, and all their friends knew it.”
The two Grammy-award winning artists, have maintained a close friendship over the years, worked together on the 2009 movie Precious, as well as both filming for the upcoming flick, The Butler, in New Orleans.
However, insiders have revealed that 31-year-old Nick hit the roof when his superstar wife posted the snap of herself and ladies man Kravitz on her Twitter page, as well as backing him to join her on the show.
”Mariah told Nick to relax because Lenny probably wouldn’t even consider doing the show.
”But Nick told her, ‘That’s not the point! I know how you feel about him!’ Mariah assured Nick that she and Lenny are just good friends, but Nick’s not so sure.”
His suspicions first began in May when Mariah met up with Kravitz in Morocco whilst vacationing with the twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
”Although Nick was upset at the time, he let it go,” said the insider. ”But now that Mariah’s actively campaigning to get Lenny on ‘Idol,’ he’s convinced that she has more history with Lenny than she’s let on. And it’s eating away at him!”
