It’s official. Nick Cannon just confirmed in an interview with my buddy Chris Spencer from Yahoo Insider that the rumors are true. Nick and Mariah Carey have been separated and living apart for months.
“There is trouble in paradise,” the America’s Got Talent host exclusively revealed to The Insider With Yahoo on Thursday. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
Cannon also dispelled rumors that the problems in his relationship are due to infidelity.
“My main focus is my kids,” he said of their 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, aka “Dem Babies.”
According to some reports, the divorce is a done deal. The couple is just waiting on the lawyers to sort out property settlements and a custody agreement for their twins Morracon and Monroe. Sources claim that Mariah grew tired of Nick’s infidelity and even hired a security team to follow him around to prevent him from cheating. But Nick adamantly denies there is any truth to that. Instead it is rumored that they have been unhappy for a long time and Nick refused to be one of her ‘Yes Men.’ She surrounds herself with people that do whatever she wants and he wasn’t interested in doing that anymore. A few months ago, he went on Big Boi’s morning show and admitted to sleeping with Kim Kardashian in his past. Apparently that enraged Mariah, who doesn’t like him talking about his past. (Even though Kim K was his girlfriend at the time of them sleeping together?)
He then made things worse by going on the Howard Stern show and admitting that he and Mariah never had sex before they were married. Mariah was not happy about that either. Let’s be honest, they were married way too fast and haven’t looked happy together for a very long time. No one believed they were a perfect match. But, we all root for love.
