After confirming that there's "trouble in paradise," Nick Cannon has reportedly been slapped with a gag order by his soon-to-be ex-wife Mariah Carey.

According to TMZ, Nick and Mariah's lawyers hashed out a confidentiality agreement as a part of their divorce. The only problem is that it was allegedly created completely in Mariah's favor.

Cannon is not allowed to say a word about the split, and if he does, he will be hit with serious financial penalties. Mariah, on the other hand, has the right under the agreement to speak on the split as she pleases.

The agreement only allows Nick to speak on their separate living situations — something he's already spoken of — and that's about it.

The couple tied the knot after less than a month of dating in a surprise ceremony in the Bahamas in 2008. They have two children together, twins Morroccan and Monroe.
