It took six weeks of dating for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon to decide they wanted to get married, and then it took six years for them to decide they wanted a divorce. So now comes the fun part — divvying up the cash (and the properties and the cars and all that).

After confirming their split a few months back, Cannon reportedly filed divorce paperwork in December. Now, tidbits about the terms of their split are finding their way to the Internet, thanks to TMZ. Of course, the numbers are impressive — especially the cost of either star blabbing about the settlement.

Here's a glimpse at this Hollywood breakup, by the numbers:

$150 million:

Mariah's net worth according to their 2008 prenup.

$30 million:

The amount of money listed in Mariah's assets as "miscellaneous." (Maybe "miscellaneous" is code for "shoes.")

$500,000:

The amount of money Nick brought to the marriage back in 2008.

$500,000:

The amount of money Nick reportedly spent on the engagement ring for Mariah back in 2008.

$470,000:

The amount of the loan Nick reportedly had to take out to purchase said engagement ring. (The ring was supposedly valued at $2.5 million, however, so he got a serious hookup.)

$500,000:

The penalty Mimi has to pay if she breaks their prenup's confidentiality clause and blabs about any of the above.

$250,000:

The penalty Nick has to pay if she breaks their prenup's confidentiality clause. (Note that this is half of the penalty Mariah would have to pay.)

Priceless:
