“We have been living paycheck-to-paycheck for a couple of years,” she says, noting she’s had to work up to three jobs at a time just to make ends meet. “I’m never sure if we’ll be able to make it again because there’s no way that Nick is gonna be successful being King Krimzon.”

Nick, who dresses as a horrorcore genre clown to create videos of rap songs under the stage name “King Krimzon,” claims he had to quit working because he had issues with his back and foot. “Plus, I wanted to focus on developing King Krimzon,” he says, adding that they’re getting by. “Our bills are paid, so why do I have to work?”

“She always threatens to divorce me,” says Nick, claiming Melissa was supportive of his dream until she started listening to her parents. Now he says they fight about the makeup, the music, the money and the gore. “She told me it was either her or King Krimzon; I told her I am always gonna choose King Krimzon.”

Estimating he’s invested between $60,000 - $70,000 on costumes, props, and makeup to create his King Krimzon persona, where does Nick say he got the money? Tune in to Thursday’s Dr. Phil.
