Nick Cannon confirmed that his six-year marriage to Mariah Carey is on the rocks. The 33-year-old America’s Got Talent host broke his silence on Thursday about rumors of his impending divorce from Carey, 44.
“We have been living in separate houses for a few months,” Cannon told Insider.” [Right now] my main focus is my kids,”
TMZ reported that the high-powered couple have lawyers involved to negotiate property and custody agreements over their 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
“Divorce is a done deal,” the gossip site reported.
Their relationship allegedly suffered a big hit when Cannon appeared on Big Boy’s radio show in March and named Kim Kardashian as one of the celebrities he has bedded.
“That made Mariah insane and humiliated,” sources told TMZ. “She tore into Nick for weeks.”
Kardashian wasn’t the only source of friction between the couple: Carey has reportedly felt “abandoned” by Cannon because of his work schedule. The Always Be My Baby songstress allegedly thought he was spending too much time away from her and their children.
“They have been living apart for a while. This is not all of a sudden. There have been issues between them for a while. They are not getting along,” another source close to Carey told E! News.
“She wants to end it and it has been in the works for months, which is why her house in the Bahamas and the house in Bel Air are on the market.”
Carey and Cannon married on April 30, 2008, at the starlet’s Bahamas estate and every year since, the duo made a pubic effort to renew their vows — except for this past April.
A rep for Carey declined to comment to the Daily News on her client’s personal life.
