Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's marriage has indeed hit a bump in the road.
Amid multiple reports that divorce is imminent for the couple who has been married for six years, Cannon, 33, has confirmed that he and Carey, 44, are living apart.
“There is trouble in paradise," the America's Got Talent host exclusively revealed to The Insider With Yahoo on Thursday. "We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
Cannon also dispelled rumors that the problems in his relationship are due to infidelity.
“My main focus is my kids," he said of their 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, aka "Dem Babies."
A publicist for Carey said, "I am not commenting on Mariah's personal life, but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour."
The couple is said to have separated around May; however, at the time, Cannon told Parade there was no truth to divorce reports.
"You kind of have to ignore it because every week it's something different, and if you paid attention to it, it actually probably would start really affecting you," he explained. "There's no merit or truth to it. It's kind of humorous, really. It couldn't be further off from the truth, and it really affects the credibility of the so-called newspapers."
Nick and Mariah continued to put on a united front over Father's Day weekend. The singer shared the below family photo — the last picture posted of the couple together on social media — on Instagram.
The pair secretly wed in the Bahamas in April 2008 after just six weeks of dating.
"We really do feel we are soulmates," Carey told People after their impromptu nuptials. "I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me."
Cannon added: "She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside."
The duo lavishly renewed their vows in the years that followed except for their most recent anniversary (the couple claimed the had a low-key celebration).
While Nick admits they have been separated for months, he did not elaborate on what the future holds. According to some reports, the divorce is "a done deal" once the two parties negotiate a property settlement and custody agreement.
