Mariah Carey Selling Bahamas Home, Updates About New Music

Shortly after news that Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon were renting a Hampton estate for $150,000/month, news broke that the star and mom of twins is selling her Bahamas villa. According to the Winnipeg Free Press, Mimi has put the 4,000 square ft, three bedrooms, three bath paradise pad, called Sea Lily, up for sale for $5.5 million. The property is where she and Nick Cannon wed in 2008, and is situated in an island that can only be accessed by helicopter or guarded bridge.

In other Mariah news, the “Touch My Body” singer is in the studio working on new material with super producer Rodney Jerkins aka Darkchild, according to various tweets. “In the studio with RJ- yeaah, having a nice time!” she wrote on her Twitter profile and posted a pic of herself and Jerkins. A few hours later, she updated on how the session went: “Tonight was a stone winner with the massively talented @RodneyJerkins.”

Jerkins has worked with award winning artists from Michael Jackson, Brandy, Destiny’s Child, to Whitney Houston.

The new music will be the first in nearly two years, as the star took time off from her craft for twins Moroccan and Monroe.
