Superstar singer Mariah Carey's marriage to Nick Cannon is on the rocks.
The “America’s Got Talent” host confirmed the reports when speaking to The Insider.
“There is trouble in paradise,” he said Thursday. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
Cannon did not divulge any reasons for the problems, but shot down rumors that it was a result of infidelity. He added that the couple’s children come first, regardless of what happens between him and the Grammy winner.
“My main focus is my kids,” he said of their 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Cannon’s comments confirmed the recent reports by TMZ and E! News that the Hollywood marriage was in trouble and had been for some time.
“They have been living apart for a while,” a source supposedly close to the singer told E! News. "This is not all of a sudden. There have been issues between them for a while. They are not getting along. 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.”
Fox News Latino's requests for comment from the singer’s rep went unanswered.
According to TMZ, their imminent divorce is a “done deal” and the couple, who got married in 2008, has been living in separate houses in New York since May.
The website also reported that the 44-year-old singer was incredibly angry at her estranged husband after he did a candid interview with Power 106 radio during which he revealed five celebrities – including Carey – whom he has slept with.
It was the final nail in the coffin for Carey, who felt “humiliated” after the interview, in which he also spoke about the first time the couple had sex.
In an interview with Parade in May, Cannon, 33, denied that there was any trouble in their marriage.
"You kind of have to ignore [the rumors] because every week it's something different, and if you paid attention to it, it actually probably would start really affecting you," he said. "There's no merit or truth to it. It's kind of humorous, really. It couldn't be further off from the truth, and it really affects the credibility of the so-called newspapers."
