After weeks of rumors, Nick Cannon has confirmed that he’s been living apart from wife Mariah Carey for a few months now. However, the America’s Got Talent host is barred from speaking about the divorce in any way.
As we previously reported, Cannon did confirm to Yahoo Insider, “There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
TMZ reports that that’s the only detail he can provide about their current situation. Cannon reportedly signed a confidentiality agreement, which states he cannot speak publicly about their impending divorce.
The agreement does state that the “I Will Always Love You” singer can announce the divorce on her own terms, though.
Sources told E! News Carey is “heartbroken” over the split and it has to do with her estranged husband’s “career choices.”
“He does not have to work, but he’s been throwing himself into gigs and projects,” said an insider, adding she “has tried and tried to get him to stay home more.”
Carey and Nick tied the knot in the Bahamas in 2008 and welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe in 2011.
