Nick Cannon‘s erratic behavior in recent weeks has friends worried he’s headed for a breakdown, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to Page Six, after leaving his hosting gig on America’s Got Talent, Cannon fired longtime advisers, including publicist Alla Plotkin and agent Chris Smith, which has insiders “concerned” for the 36-year-old’s mental health and well being.
Cannon also recently “got really into religion,” wearing robes and a turban and calling himself “Reverend Dr. Cannon,” though he isn’t subscribed to a specific branch of faith, the publication reports.

As Radar readers know, Mariah Carey‘s ex-husband was hospitalized for several weeks due to complications from lupus, undergoing five blood transfusions during his stay.
But since his return, Cannon’s social media presence has become increasingly disconcerting, with recent posts pointing to the star’s “pain” and sadness.
It’s hard to explain people what’s going on inside when you don’t understand it yourself… but I’m a warrior, I will figure it out then share my pain with the world eventually….

I write this from a deeply saddened and dolorous mindset. After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke. This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my “team” that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment. Recently many of my mentors have cautioned me that soon “The System” would come down on me because I was speaking too many truths and being to loud about it. I had no idea that it all would hit so close to home. I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn’t have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property. There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity. I have loved hosting AMERICAS GOT TALENT for the last 8 seasons, watching talented, brave, and courageous Americans accomplish their dreams in front of millions has been nothing but a joy, and everyone has been a pleasure to work with but my soul won’t allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices. Not to get too detailed but this isn’t the first time executives have attempted to “put me in my place” for so called unruly actions. I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head. It’s never been about the money for me, what is difficult to walk away from is the fans, the people who love me on the show. This hurts tremendously. I felt like I was apart of the fabric of our great nation every summer, representing every culture, age, gender, and demographic. Now for the rug to be pulled from underneath me and to be publicly reprimanded and ridiculed over a joke about my own race is completely wrong… Continued on My FACEBOOK
