A little over six months since their initial split, Nick Cannon has filed for divorce from Mariah Carey, a new report claims.
Nick Cannon, 34, and Mariah Carey, 44, are officially over. The America’s Got Talent host reportedly filed for divorce from Mariah back in Dec. 2014. The couple had been married for six years and had two children together, but had a very public breakup in Aug. 2014.
Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Divorce — Host Files The Final Papers
Nick filed divorce papers on Dec. 12, 2014, TMZ reports.
Nick’s divorce filing came just nine days after Mariah allegedly showed up three hours late to the Christmas At Rockefeller Center special on Dec. 3. The split has been tough for both Mariah and Nick. The struggle of spending the holidays without each other took an emotional toll on Mariah at another show during the Christmas season.
Their impending divorce was pretty much written in the sand. Mariah reportedly just finalized a Las Vegas residency deal to perform in Sin City while Celine Dion is on a break. Looks like Mariah is having a good and bad week.
However, they both feel free to express themselves about the split in song. Nick allegedly dissed Mariah in an upcoming track while it looked like Mariah was calling out Nick for cheating at a performance for her Elusive Chanteuse World Tour in Oct. 2014.
The couple have 3-year-old twins, Morocco and Marilyn. There’s no word yet on how the couple will settle a custody agreement.
We are sad to see Nick and Mariah go their separate ways, but if they feel this is the right thing to do then we support their decision.
