Mariah Carey is "still mad" at Nick Cannon for the birthday gifts he bought their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Nick and Mariah, who divorced in 2016, had agreed not to buy Moroccan and Monroe cell phones when they first asked for the risky devices at age 8.

However, the media mogul went back on their "deal" to give the twins cell phones when they were older.

"The Masked Singer" host asked Mariah if he could give the twins cell phones at age 10. But Mariah said no.

So Nick decided to give Roc and Roe the phones anyway when they turned 10 in April.

Speaking in a preview clip from his eponymous talk show, Nick - who has seven kids with four women - said:

"My oldest twins Roc and Roe wanted a cell phone at eight.

"I was all for it but Mariah was like, 'Uh-huh they aren't going to be Googling us, learning about all their new brothers and sisters, no we aren't playing.'

"I respected it at eight, but then we made a deal and said at 10 then they can have it, (but) Mariah still said no.

"So at 10, I snuck and I still got them the cell phones for their birthday."

The star said he left the gift amongst other presents at the twins' "amazing" birthday party, knowing his ex-wife wouldn't be happy.

He laughingly continued:

"We had this amazing party with jump jumps, their friends came, it was so amazing. Then (when) it was time to open the gifts, I was like 'I'm going to leave these right here and tell your mama I'll be back.'

"Mariah is still mad at me till this day."

Does your minor child own a cell phone? If the answer is yes, he or she has probably been exposed to "sexting" or sexual text messages.

A new study shows 37% of children who own cell phones are exposed to sexting by age 13. The data for the study came from a parenting app called Jiminy that allows parents to regulate the content their children see on the Internet.

The company found that 14.8% of children who own a smartphone had sent or received a sexual text message by age 10 and more than 37% had sent or received sexting messages by age 13.

Jiminy warns parents that their children are far more open to sexual exploration online, which puts them at risk of being approached by sexual predators.

"Sexting is quickly becoming a normative form of sexual exploration among preteens and teens," the study finds. "As such, parents would expect the real possibility that their children may be approached by others, known or unknown, or approach others in a sexually explicit manner."

UPDATE: Police say the cell phone found along Patterson Road in West Houston is not linked to 4-year-old Maleah Davis's case.

Earlier, the Houston Chronicle reported that a volunteer search and rescue group found the phone.

But police tell The Chronicle the group that found the phone is not Texas EquuSearch volunteers, "instead it's an independent group who started searching on their own yesterday. Miller expressed frustration with groups like this who are working w/out help of law enforcement."

EquuSearch founder Tim Miller told the Houston Chronicle the cell phone was found around noon Friday along Patterson Road.

Derion Vence, who was engaged to Maleah's mother, was the last person to see the girl alive. She was reported missing on Saturday, May 4, after Vence claimed he was carjacked by three Hispanic males who struck him over the head and took Maleah the night before.

Vence was arrested on Saturday, May 11, after his story unraveled. He was charged with tampering with a corpse and is being held on $45,000 bond.

The discovery of the cell phone is important because it could contain GPS data that may lead police to the location where Vence disposed of Maleah's remains.

Vence may have intentionally discarded the phone to make it more difficult for police to track his movements on the day Maleah went missing.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo believes Maleah was murdered. Acevedo held a press conference on Thursday to give a brief update on the missing girl.

Acevedo told the media his only suspect, Vence, knows where Maleah's body is but he continues to lie about his involvement.

"You could drive a big rig right through the tales this guy has been telling," Acevedo said.

Acevedo pleaded with the public to help find Maleah's body to give her a proper burial and bring closure to her family.

"The evidence shows that we believe she has been murdered. Let's bring this baby home, proper burial," he said. "Without finding that body, there is a hole left out there. We want to give them the closure, of both charges and finding her body."

When former Atlanta city manager Mitzi Bickers (pictured) was arrested on bribery, wire fraud and money laundering charges earlier this month, she was spotted talking on a flip phone as she left the federal courthouse with her attorney.

driving while texting

It is now illegal to hold your cell phone or place your cell phone on your lap while driving in Georgia. The Georgia General Assembly on Thursday approved an amended House Bill 673 that requires drivers to use "hands-free" technology while driving. But hands-free technology is not as clear cut as it sounds.

mixed race girl with iPhone

If you suspect that Apple is intentionally throttling or slowing down your iPhone to force you to upgrade, you're not just being paranoid. Apple has confirmed rumors that the old iPhones are designed to slow down as the battery ages.

Forbes first noticed back in 2016 that their old iPhones were slowing down. They did a little investigating and learned that there is "something buried in iOS code called 'Powerd' that will increasingly slow down your device as your battery degrades."

Once that code was removed, their old iPhones ran at normal speed again.
