Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Marriage: Will They Seek Help To Save Marriage?

“As far as I know, they haven’t seen a marriage counselor,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “That’s not Mariah’s speed and knowing her, she wouldn’t dare try to do that because she’d be afraid it would get out that the marriage was in trouble.”

Our source also noted how controlling Mariah can be towards Nick. The couple has already set up a confidentiality agreement that prevents Nick from saying anything about their split, TMZ reports. However, he was the one to confirm the split in the first place.

All marriages are different and our source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Mariah “feels no counselor could ever understand her relationships or marriage.”

“She feels it’s way out of the realm of comprehension for a counselor. She’s wouldn’t let an outsider into her world like that. Not a chance. She doesn’t trust most people, even professionals.”

Nick and Mariah’s marriage took a toll after a lot of “arguing and stupid fights,” an insider dished to us. We’ve also learned that the age difference between the couple and Nick’s partying helped push Mariah over the edge concerning their marriage.

“At this point, it’s done. MiMi forgives but it takes a loooong time for her to heal and on top of that she never forgets,” our source said. “Nick’s not prepared to have all those mental trips with her any longer.”

Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey: They’re Both Taking Split ‘Equally Hard’

Regardless of whether or not they are trying to seek help for their marriage, both Nick and Mariah are having a rough time with the split.

“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 already know that Mariah is “heartbroken” over the breakup, and we’re sure Nick is as well. After all, they have two beautiful children together — Moroccan and Monroe. We hope that Nick and Mariah will fight for their marriage, especially for their kids.
