Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are STILL married, everyone.

Technically, that is.

Even though Mariah became engaged to James Packer in January and sports a gargantuan 35-carat diamond engagement ring the business mogul gave her.

The scoop is that Mariah has been beseeching her ex Nick to sign off on the divorce papers, but he keeps stalling and won't say why, reports TMZ.

It's kind of odd, because Nick was the one who filed for divorce in 2014, but it seems he's having a change of heart.

Sources have told the site that he really just doesn't want to let Mariah go.

Everything's been settled - including the property deal and custody arrangement for the couple's kids - so all that's missing is Nick's John Hancock to make the divorce official.

Understandably, Mariah is frustrated and wants to move forward with her fiance, but sources say Nick is making that difficult.

Since the split, all has appeared amicable between the former flames.

When Mariah announced her engagement, Nick wished the couple well and even shared a hilarious meme poking fun at himself on Instagram.

In the caption, Nick wrote:

"Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union... #GreatPeople #GreatCouple"

Additionally, when the couple split, he vowed never to utter a bad word about his ex and mother of his children.

"I will never say anything negative about @MariahCarey. We are forever a family rooted in love," he promised.

So why won't he sign? Smells like something's going on behind the scenes that hasn't come out yet.
