The other half: Mariah Carey
The OTT treat: Nick, who married Mariah in April 2008, splashed out an alleged Dhs5.5 million on a five-bedroom ski chalet in Aspen, Colorado for his new wife. According to sources, Aspen is one of Mariah’s favourite holiday destinations.
How ‘wow’ was it? The singer isn’t short of homes, with properties in New York and LA, but ski chalets don’t come cheap!
Did their love last? Mariah gave birth to twins, Moroccan and Monroe, nicknamed ‘Roc and ‘Roe, in April 2011 and the couple launched a website dedicated to the twins, dembabes.com, in October of the same year.
DIY in the UAE
Try a ski chalet at the Kempinski Mall of the Emirates, offering a bizarre Aspen-esque living experience with views over the Ski Dubai slope. A one-bed chalet costs from Dhs1,799, plus taxes - a bit less than Nick paid - but if you want to splash out, the Mzaar ski resort in Lebanon offers real ski action from late December to early March.
