Are Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon done?

It’s not over ’til it’s over, but Cannon admitted, “There is trouble in paradise.” He told The Insider With Yahoo, “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon/Oscar red carpet“My main focus is my kids,” Cannon said, talking about Monroe and Moroccan, the couple’s three-year-old twins.

News of the split came amid escalating rumors about their relationship.

When reached for comment, Carey’s rep said, “I don’t comment on Mariah’s personal life.”

Cannon and Carey wed in April 2008, after a six-week whirlwind courtship that started when Cannon was cast in Carey’s “Love Story” music video. In 2011, the couple welcomed twins, a son named Morrocan and a daughter named Monroe.

Cannon has previously shot down rumors of their separation: “That’s my soul mate,” Cannon told Big Boi during an interview in March. In May, Cannon again denied that their marriage was on the rocks. “There’s no merit or truth to it,” he told Parade. “It couldn’t be further off from the truth.”

Mariah Carey has reportedly forbid Cannon from saying anything more about the split after her lawyers drafted a confidentiality agreement as part of the divorce

    “Living in seperate houses”…guess the one house wasn’t big enough for him, the kids and her gigantic ego

  • Becky

    Long running, up to the minute muse coverage, obviously didn’t reach it’s expectations.
    Guess the Governor isn’t the only one to have a bad marriage and tried to keep it out of the
    Public Eye frenzy feeds. Mariah can BUY control and silence her mates as she throws them
    under the bus for a new and improved model.
