Well, it's official.
After months of rumors that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are headed for divorce, Cannon confirmed today that he and Mariah are living apart and the future of their marriage is uncertain.
"There's trouble in paradise," said Cannon in an interview with The Insider. "We've been living in separate houses for a few months."
Cannon was unwilling to discuss the cause of the breakup, but he stated that there was no infidelity involved.
So we can probably safely assume that there's no truth to the rumor that Mariah hired a security team to keep Nick away from other women.
While it had long been suspected that there was - as Nick says - "trouble in paradise" Cannon's confirmation of the separation was unexpected and he reportedly seemed distraught before the interview.
While little is known about the couple's plans for the future, Cannon made clear that his children are his top priority:
"Right now my focus is on my kids," he said by way of a final word.
