According to TMZ, Nick Cannon was “shaken to his core” and seriously questioned his value as an entertainer after NBC unleashed its fury on him, and that led him to the decision to quit “America’s Got Talent.”
It is said that Nick was devastated when he learned the network was on the verge of firing him as host of ‘AGT‘ just because he made a few “harmless comments about NBC,” and he was threatened with termination.
Nick started to question his own self-worth as an entertainer, thinking he was being treated differently from the others because he just wasn’t that good.
He also took into account losing his salary … we’ve learned Nick has been pulling in around $4.5 million a season for ‘AGT.’
Nick, according to the grapevine, was in a terrible state after employer, NBC began to attack him. One source says it was emotionally harder on him than dealing with his very serious medical problems, including Lupus.
Cannon decided in the end he believed in himself and was undervalued by the network … so he quit.
