Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Split: He Speaks Out
Power couple Nick and Mariah have decided to go their separate ways after rumors that he had been unfaithful to the legendary pop songstress.
“There is trouble in paradise,” the America’s Got Talent host told The Insider on Aug. 21. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

Mariah’s rep told Us Weekly, “I don’t comment on Mariah’s personal life,” her rep said, “but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”
Nick & Mariah ‘Fighting A Lot’ Before Split
Shortly before Nick made his sad revelation on Aug. 21, MediaTakeOut reported that the couple would be going public with their split soon, adding that Nick had been living at his grandparents’ house. Mariah and Nick put their Bel Air mansion on the market for $13 million in July.
A report in New York Post‘s Page Six echoed the rumors. “He hasn’t been staying at their home,” an insider told the gossip section. “He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.”
The couple are rumored to have split because Mariah believed that Nick was cheating on her. She reportedly hired a security guard to keep an eye on him when he hosted parties in Las Vegas, according to Page Six.
“The security guard wasn’t there to keep the girls away from him. It was to keep him away from the girls,” the source said, adding that Mariah also didn’t want her husband to drink during the events because he “gets in trouble when he drinks.”
