Mariah Carey Is Reportedly Finalizing Her Split With Nick CannonBy: Val Powell - August 31, 2014
The marriage of singer Mariah Carey, 45, and TV host Nick Cannon, 33, may be coming to an end. The two have reportedly met over details of the divorce. The couple reportedly held a meeting on Tuesday at Carey’s New York City apartment to talk about their divorce agreement.
According to a source that spoke to E! News, one of the stipulations that the couple discussed was that only one announcement for the divorce would be made, and it would be made by Carey’s team. “Nick said he was fine with this. He knows he really upset her by speaking out of turn last week and has apologized for it,” the source said.
Cannon told The Insider on August 21 that he and Carey had not been sleeping in the same house in recent months. “There is trouble in paradise,” he said.
A source told HollywoodLife.com that the marriage had suffered because of the increasing number of fights between Carey and her husband. “They both didn’t want to live under the same roof if they’d be fighting. They didn’t want the staff to know and of course they kept that away from the kids,” said the source.
However, it is clear that the couple is putting aside their differences in order to give top priority to their children, three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. E! News’s source said, “She told him she needed to get out of town and she was taking the kids with her. Nick was fine with it.” The source went on to reveal that Cannon “thinks [Carey’s] a good mom,” and that he isn’t worried about their children’s welfare when they are with her.

Carey was spotted on Friday with the twins, having lunch at Da Mikele in Tribeca and without her wedding ring. A witness told People that the singer and her children “seemed happy and like they were having a good time.” Meanwhile, Cannon was also seen not wearing his wedding ring while he hosted the August 26 episode of America’s Got Talent.
