Nick Cannon is either justified in his lawsuit against ex Mariah Carey or he's simply "a sadly desperate man."
The "America's Got Talent" host claims he never authorized the $9 million sale of their Los Angeles home and believes their business manager, Michael Kane, was dealing exclusively with the singer's team, leaving Cannon completely out of the deal, reports TMZ.
"(It's) clearly a desperate act from a sadly desperate man," Kane said, calling the lawsuit "frivolous."
Cannon's issue isn't with the sale of the home, but rather that he was blindsided by it. For now, the 34-year-old TV personality is requesting the funds be frozen until he can obtain a detailed accounting statement in order to determine how much he and Carey will get.
The couple, who married in 2008, purchased the Bel-Air mansion in April 2009 for $6.975 million from accomplished audio engineer and producer Allen Sides, according to Variety.
The 3-acre estate includes the 11,750 square foot abode with 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 3 half bathrooms. Additionally, there are formal living and dining rooms, a double-height foyer, home theater, game room, recording studio, indoor basketball court and the Aspen Room, an entertainment lounge with a field-stone fireplace, full bar, backyard access and views of the Stone Canyon Reservoir.
Prior to their split, the 44-year-old singer and Cannon put the home on the market for the asking price of $12,995,000 in Feb. 2014.
Regardless of what the outcome of the lawsuit is, it's surely not a big deal for the musical diva, who also owns a penthouse in New York City's trendy Tribeca neighborhood and also a beachfront getaway on the Bahamas' Windermere Island.
