Now that Nick Cannon has confirmed there’s “trouble in paradise” between he and Mariah Carey…things are starting to get messy! The entertainer’s father, James Cannon, stirred up some trouble by taking to his Facebook page to pose questions about marital problems.

Although James didn’t name his famous son and daughter-in-law by name in his post, his questions addressed a troubled relationship much like the ones reported to be plaguing their marriage.

These questions included: “If the wife love [sic] sex and the man can’t stand making love to her. What should that women [sic] do?”, “If the husband say no lies and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do?” and “If the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do?”

Things got incredibly personal, when he wrote, “If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she it [sic] anyways, what should that man do?” Finally, and most directly related to Mariah and Nick’s relationship, he asked, “If a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?” (Mariah has made it clear that she does not want any more kids).

James has since deleted the posts, but eventually issued a response to the claims that they were about the couple, insisting the questions simply came from a book he wrote. “Check my record I stay out of other people [sic] business, even my own sons,” he wrote. “Please forgive me to those that may have misunderstood my question from my book The Calling about relationships, with father and son, about mothers and their girls and the calling of a husband and the calling of a wife.” He added, “No ones name was mentioned.”
