Nick Cannon confirmed reports that he and wife Mariah Carey separated and haven’t been living together for awhile.
“There is trouble in paradise,” the hose of America’s Got Talent revealed to Yahoo Insider. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
According to Us Weekly, Cannon wouldn’t open up completely, opting not to disclose the reason for their separation, instead saying his “main focus is my kids.” The 33-year-old father of twins did say that the split was not due to any infidelity.
Reports have been coming out over the past few days of the likelihood of divorce after they went through a trial separation. TMZ claimed Cannon and Carey had been separated since May, which seems to be in line with Cannon’s statement.
The site claimed that their marriage began to suffer some strain after Cannon went on Big Boy’s radio show and claimed to have slept with Kim Kardashian in the past. He later claimed on Howard Stern’s radio show to say she doesn’t know the of the reality starlet.
