Reports claim the singer believes Nick has betrayed her by signing the deal last week with famed publishing company, Simon and Schuster.
According to UK's Daily Mail, Nick plans to get his payday for being married to her one way or another after Mariah rejected Nick's numerous demands for a $30 million divorce settlement.
Simon & Schuster has confirmed that the book is being published by Gallery Books, an imprint of the high-powered publisher, reports the news outlet.
"Mariah was willing to give Nick $10 million but he said 'hell no' and demanded $30," a family friend tells the Daily Mail exclusively.
The source adds that, 'Mariah says it is what they agreed to in the prenup before they got married. Mariah kept telling Nick she was not going to give him a penny more than $10 million.
"He told her he could write a book and get $30 million and much more for a movie deal for all of the crap she put him through over the years.
"Mariah told Nick nobody cares what he has to say and told him to take it or leave it because that's it - not a penny more."
The friend also believes Nick asked for an outrageous amount from Mariah so when she said 'no' he could use that as an excuse to go to the book publisher.
The actor and host of America's Got Talent has an estimated net worth of $20 million. Mariah is worth about $225 million.
