Mariah Carey and Nick Canon have reportedly split. The couple, who are married for more than six years, have reportedly living separately for a few months and the "I Still Believe" singer is said to be shattered by the separation.
Canon has made his troubled marriage public by revealing to the media that they are not together anymore.
"There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months," Canon told Chris Spencer of Yahoo about his marriage with Carey.
There have been whispers for a long time in regards to problem persisting in their marriage. The exact reason for their separation is not known yet but several reports claimed that cheating had tainted their marriage.
Moreover, Carey is quite disheartened with her ruptured marriage.
"This has been going on for months," a source told E! Online, adding, "It has a lot to do with Nick's career choices. He does not have to work but he's been throwing himself into gigs and projects."
Apparently, Carey wanted Cannon to spend more time at home than at work. But the latter choose to find solace in his work, as reported.
"She has tried and tried to get him to stay home more, but he always uses work as an excuse," a source told the Website, adding, "Of course, Mariah only makes it worse by pointing out that he doesn't really need to work — " he hates when people assume he's living off her money."
Cannon and Carey walked down the aisle in 2008 in a private ceremony witnessed by friends and family. She had twins - Moroccan and Monroe - from her marriage with the "America Has Got Talent" host.
The singer is understood to be focusing on her kids.
"I don't comment on Mariah's personal life," the rep of the singer said, adding, "but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour."
The couple was much in love when they got married despite 10 years age difference between them.
"We really do feel we are soulmates," Carey told People post their sunset wedding in the Bahamian state. "I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me."
"She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside," Canon had said after tying the knot with the singer.
The official announcement in regards to their reported divorce is still awaited.
