According to Us Weekly and a number of other tabloids, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s marriage is sinking. The two have been living apart for months.
Several sources have spoken with the mag about the couple’s rocky relationship, saying that they have been living apart since June. “It has been shaky for a while, but it all came to a head recently”, said one source. “[Nick] is more closed off this season”, said another, adding that, for a while now, Carey has not been present on the set of “America’s Got Talent”, the ultrapopular show that her husband is hosting. Plus, he doesn’t talk about her anymore.
Meanwhile, the singer’s representative did not comment on the matter.
44-year-old Mariah Carey and 33-year-old Nick Cannon first met in 2008, on the set of her “Bye Bye” music video. They tied the knot only four weeks later. In 2011, the couple welcomed twins Monroe and Moroccan. The pregnancy did not come without complication for the diva, who has been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, high blood pressure and preeclampsia. Prior to this, they have struggled to conceive and Carey even miscarried once.
If they go ahead with the split, this would be Carey’s second failed marriage. The singer divorced producer Tommy Mottola in 1998, after a 5-year marriage. He is currently married to Mexican singer and actress Thalia, with whom he has two children.
