We told you earlier today that TMZ reported Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s relationship as being on the outs, and that they already have attorneys working on property settlements and custody agreements. While it’s not 100 percent clear whether or not the couple will really end their marriage of six years, Cannon is now confirming that things between them aren’t well and that at this point, he is just trying to do what’s best for his children, Monroe & Moroccan. This is what he had to say exclusively in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo today:
“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.
My main focus is my kids.”
Cannon reportedly told The Insider that cheating was not the cause for the troubles, as rumors swirled that Mimi hired a security guard to keep an eye on him and make sure he was being faithful (and she did say back in 2011 that she could only trust him “sometimes“). But he didn’t say anything about the effect his past comments about sex with his exes (including Kim Kardashian) and sex with Carey might have had on their relationship. He did say earlier in the year that she wasn’t too crazy about him divulging that information to the public.
“She (Mariah) said to me, ‘Oh yeah, by the way, could you keep your whore-ish past to yourself if you’re doing any interviews?’ I was like, ‘Got you.’”
We’re hoping these two can work things out, especially for the sake of “Dem Babies.”
