Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are reportedly splitting after six years of marriage, and will officially announce it later this week.
According to The New York Post’s Page Six’s report, Mariah and Nick are “living separately.” A source revealed that Nick has been living out of hotels.
Nick is reportedly staying at NYC’s Tribeca Grand Hotel, while wife Mariah stays in another Manhattan hotel and sometimes in a friend’s country home upstate.
The rumors circulating about the reason behind the couple’s breakup are contradicting. Some reports claim that Mariah has been suspecting her husband of cheating, but another source close to the couple says otherwise; “Nick completely adored Mariah, he would NEVER cheat on her.”
Another speculation has it that the trouble in paradise was triggered by Nick’s interview with Power 106.FM, when the actor became too open about his sexual escapades. In the interview, Nick revealed five celebrity ladies that he had dated—including Kim Kardashian, who he dated briefly in 2006.
“They’re fighting a lot,” another source said.
In July, Mariah and Nick sold their Bel-Air mansion for over $10 million, with a report going around that the couple wanted to raise their children, twins Monroe and Moroccan, in New York City, where Mariah owns a triplex in Tribeca.
Mariah and Nick met at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, when Nick presented her with the Choice Music R&B Artist. The couple married in 2008.
