So sad! Nick and Mariah are both equally heartbroken after they decided to separate following six years of marriage, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Breaking up is hard to do, and Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey‘s separation is no exception. Both stars are now mourning the downfall of their once “happy” marriage, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Here’s why.
Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Relationship: They’re Taking Split ‘Equally Hard’
Poor Nick, 33, and Mariah, 44! Even though they’ve decided to live separately, it sounds like there’s still a lot of love in their marriage and they’re both hurting right now as a result.
“Both Nick and Mariah are taking the split equally hard because they really loved one another and for most of the relationship, they were happy. Real happy. But that hasn’t been the case of late,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
We hope that Nick and Mariah will be able to reconnect and find that happiness again — if only for the sake of their adorable twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 3. Thankfully, both parents have said that they’re focusing on their children first right now, as they should be — but we think they should make rebuilding their relationship a close second priority!
Mariah Carey ‘Heartbroken’ Over Separation From Nick Cannon
Nick confirmed the sad news of his split from Mariah to The Insider on Aug. 21, admitting that they have been living separately. And according to an E! Online source, Mariah is “heartbroken.”
“This has been going on for months,” says their source. “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.”
“She has tried and tried to get him to stay home more, but he always uses work as an excuse,” E!’s source added. “He hates when people assume he’s living off her money.”
Nick and Mariah clearly haven’t been seeing eye to eye on some pretty crucial things, but we believe that they could resolve all of their issues in couples therapy.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Nick and Mariah do whatever it takes to save their marriage? Let us know.
