Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Headed for Divorce?

Nick, Mariah, and Dem Babies

Is the fairytale romance over for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon? The superstar couple is reportedly calling it quits.

According to TMZ, the divorce is “a done deal.” Mariah and Nick separated back in May and are currently living apart. Divorce lawyers have been brought in to negotiate a property settlement and custody agreement for their twins.

The breakup was allegedly triggered after Nick’s appearance on “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” in March. Nick played Big Boy’s “Gimmie 5″ game, where he had to reveal five celebrities he’s slept with. Nick named Selita Ebanks, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger, and Kim Kardashian, the latter of which reportedly angered Mariah.

She was upset for weeks and felt humiliated, but the relationship never recovered.

To make things worse, Nick appeared on Howard Stern and talked about Mariah not having sex before their marriage, which set her off even more.

Mariah feels that Nick has abandoned her by taking every job offer when they don’t need the money, which has also kept him away from their kids.

Nick, on the other hand, feels that Mariah has become impossible because she surrounds herself with “yes men.” He says she can’t handle it when he disagrees with her.

E! News reports that the couple’s Bahamas home, where they wed in April 2008, and their Bel-Air estate are currently on the market.

The two have remained quiet, but Nick denied the divorce rumors during an interview with Parade in May.

“There’s no merit or truth to it,” he said. “It’s kind of humorous, really. It couldn’t be further off from the truth, and it really affects the credibility of the so-called newspapers.”

The couple celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary in April. They share three-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

UPDATE: Nick Cannon has confirmed that he and Mariah are living apart.

“There is trouble in paradise,” the “America’s Got Talent” host told “The Insider.” “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

But he shot down reports that the problems in his relationship are due to infidelity.

“My main focus is my kids,” he said of Dem Babies.

When asked for comment, Mariah’s publicist said, “I am not commenting on Mariah’s personal life, but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”

    @KEN., We don’t know them so let’s not act like she deserves a better man maybe it’s the opposite…

    I said what I said.

    There’s no excuse for a grown married man to be discussing who he had spelt with in the past.

    Mariah deserves better.

    @KEN., I hear you but for a marriage to break up from that is just weak. Can’t they work hard at it to at least save whatever they have left?

    If they truly love each other and want to fight for that bond then they won’t throw in the towel and give up. Its too easy!

    These people will work hard for money but can’t be bothered to put in the same hard work in a relationship. Jokers!

    @KEN., That’s very weak to just end a marriage over something so petty. What happened to for better or worse?

  3. aurora

    Meh nobody cares.


  4. Copyiana Grande

    Wow this breaks my heart but look on the bright side we can expect some really good material on her next album


  5. Kyle

    Nick Cannon is lame so it really wouldn’t surprise me.


  6. Cali kid

    She needs an older, mature, grown man. Having nick as a husband seems like taking care of another child. No shade at all though


  7. TRP

    She got what she wanted, Dem Babies. I never expected them to last.


  8. I predict

    Karma. That’s all I have to say.

    @I predict, At least she didn’t get with a suitcase so there’s that.

    @DRB, lmao It’s a shame that that small comment got you upset. Sigh.

    Ahh man :(


  10. Ha

    oh damn he smashed kim k?? lmao!!


    Bobbuilder Reply:

    @Ha, Everybody did!

    Don’t you remember – you did too? Lol


    T Reply:

    @Ha, it was more than “smashing” they were dating when she was still organizing Paris Hilton’s closets. It’s no secret. Kim is a serial monogamist she can’t handle being alone for too long. Kris Jenner groomed a step ford wife.

    Wow. Nick?

    Good for you Mariah.

    That must’ve been embarrassing though. To have had sex with younger women than Mariah, and say it on TV – embarrassing.


  12. Bitches In Paris

    People these days divorce over dumb shit.


  13. T

    She didn’t know he f*cked Kim Kardashian? Does this chick not know how to work Google?

    Nick might be childish but apparently so is Mariah. Opposites don’t always attract. Complete space cadet, and infantilized by her entourage of yes men and hangers on.

    I don’t know how much I believe Mariah getting mad about Nick’s sex convos but she’s contradicted herself in the past about it. One minute she doesn’t care and the next it embarrasses her.

    Mariah doesn’t seem like she can handle being told no or disagreed with. She’s a meglomaniac on level with Kanye except Mariah is less explosive and has better manners (outwardly). Anybody who brings their own lighting team with them can’t handle reality. Sadly she’s too far gone and will likely never mature. Mariah now seems so removed from the person she was years ago. Money has made her and if she lost it and the status I doubt she’s secure enough to live without it.

    I feel bad for the kids.

    I applaud her for not having sex before marriage, Nick really didn’t have to expose something so personal. He’s such a gigilo (pun intended).

    From day one, Nick has been running his mouth about stuff that she would never publicize. She’s always shrugged it off and said he should hush. I doubt it was just for this reason or two interviews, but for years, she’s been telling him to shut up so I’m sure it became a mounting annoyance, but no where near the sole reason to divorce.

    *The NYC triplex is hers. She’s had that since 99.
    *The Bahamas house is hers. She bought it before they met and she’s been trying to sell it for years.
    *The LA house, which was sold and then not, that’s THEIRS. She’s always been very NY so that was for him since he was working out there and he wanted to raise kids in LA but she wanted NY.

    If you listened to her album then you would think something was up. The only issue is most of it was written in 2012 and early 13. Their was a foreign interview and the translation said the album was originally darker and more emotional, if that was accurate, I can only imagine what she left off.

    *They didn’t renew their vows this year.
    *They’ve both been relatively quiet for months.
    *She went to the Bahamas for an entire month to finish her album, but still, a month without your husband and taking the kids.
    *The last time they were pictured together (aside from the occasional online post for Fathers Day) is a Def Jam party for her album when it was supposed to come out on the 6th.

    I’ve thought something was up for months, but again, I doubt it was solely cause of their reasoning.

    6 years or five happy ones, thats a win. Hopefully they aren’t bitter and the divorce is cut and dry and they can move on.


    DRB Reply:

    @DRB, Also, she’s stubborn and “insecure,” he’s immature and beyond busy. That’s an interesting mix. Curious to know what the reasoning is but its none of our business.

    PS, she looked phenomenal in this picture. She really was on it before she injured her arm.

    @DRB, good insight

    Poor children, is not their fault that they have selfish lazy fcks instead of parents. Every problem can be solved.


    DRB Reply:

    @Andy, Not everyone is meant to stay together forever and marriages end. It’s far worse to live with two people who can’t stand each other.

    This could very well be the cause…



    I’m surprised anyone can stand to be with her for more than 10 minutes. I had met her a few times due to industry parties, and my god, I’ve never met ANYONE so clueless and selfish. Most of the engagements that shes supposed to be at, she’s often late, and not by a few minutes, I’m talking hours.

    I completely agree about her having “Yes men” (I’ve seen and heard). She’s a complete diva and unfortunately all the people around her are sharks like her.


  20. theyknw

    That thing about nick taking ever job that came his way might of been due to some insecure feelings he has about being with Mariah and being younger then her.

    And all those joke thrown at Him by people….

    “Mariah got more money and fame then you” or “Mariah wears the pants” and that whole nick ain’t got a real job joke that even Eminem joked about must of made him insecure as a man. :(
