Host admits there's "trouble in paradise" for the couple.
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are indeed separated, the Real Husbands of Hollywood star confirmed on Thursday. One day after reports surfaced that the couple of six years are headed for a split, Cannon tells The Insider that he and his wife have been living apart for some time.
"There is trouble in paradise," Cannon, 33, told The Insider of his marriage to the Grammy-winning pop diva. "We have been living in separate houses for a few months."
While Cannon wouldn't elaborate on the cause of their separation, he did dismiss the idea that his rumored infidelity was a factor. The actor/comedian/host also added, "my main focus is my kids."
Cannon and Carey tied the knot in a surprise ceremony in the Bahamas in 2008 after less than a month of dating. The couple have two children, twins Morroccan and Monroe.
