Hubby Nick Cannon has come to the defense of his wifey after Mariah Carey’s reported gripe with fellow “American Idol” panelist Nicki Minaj and has stated the “real” problem.

Cannon admitted his biggest issue is with Fox allowing Minaj to get at his wife.

I’m kinda disappointed in FOX and everything, because they’re taking away from the quality of Idol.” Appearing on Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, Nick says, “This is about people accomplishing their dream — experts guiding these young people to do what they’ve done.” Mariah’s hubby points out, “If you watch the video, she [Mariah] maintains her composure.” He describes Mariah as “the strongest classiest woman I’ve ever met.

According to the RumorFix.com report, Nick says of Mariah, “I don’t think she’s moved by the theatrics or pageantry of it all — she signed on to do a job to help young people realize their dreams.“Despite Nick’s stance, the latest reports suggest Carey egged on Minaj.
