“Honestly, I think Nick and I could have worked it out between the two of us, but egos and emotions got inflamed (which can translate into many billable lawyer hours, and ultimately, it did,” Mariah revealed. “It was tough,” she admitted. “We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family.”
