Mariah Carey may be one of the world’s most talented performers on stage, but she hasn’t been so “lucky in love” as she recently announced her divorce from husband Nick Cannon after six years of marriage.
According to a report by TMZ, Nick was the one who ended the marriage, and he allegedly did so out of concerns over Mariah’s mental state and how that would manifest itself on their kids, Moroccan and Monroe.
TMZ reported that an inside source told them, “Nick has made it clear to all involved… he’s deeply concerned about Mariah’s emotional state and is ending the marriage for the well being of their kids. He believes the environment around Mariah is toxic and fears for his kids.”
The same source also said that Nick is worried because Mariah’s handlers are more concerned about the financial implications for the ex-couple than they are for the welfare of the twins, aged three.
Nick Cannon allegedly said to the insider, ‘There is trouble in paradise…we have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
But a rep for Mariah Carey refuted those allegation telling US Weekly recently, “Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”
Until not long ago, everyone thought things were just peachy behind closed for for Mariah and Nick, but another TMZ report noted that when Nick revealed a list of five celebrities he had slept with during a very candid interview with Power 106 radio, Mariah was left feeling “humiliated.”
The “trouble in paradise” started back in March following that interview and things just seemed to spiral from there. Perhaps it was Nick’s revelation about his previous romance with Kim Kardashian back in 2006, but who knows?
Either way, there’s no doubt that Nick’s spilling of the beans on the radio sealed his fate with Mariah Carey, and the relationship has just gone sour fast, ending with the divorce and ensuing bitterness, court and custody battles.
Just as a reminder, in case you missed that candid radio interview and are curious, Nick Cannon had his list ready, ‘That’s easy. OK, Mariah Carey, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger, Selita Ebanks, oh, Kim Kardashian,” he revealed.
Thankfully, Nick did finish that interview off with a nice compliment for his now ex-wife Mariah Carey, when he said: “She doesn’t care when I talk about our sex life because our sex life is amazing.”
