Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey officially separated

Divorce is reportedly on the horizon for Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon, after six years of marriage.  The first credible reports are painting the picture we all have been seeing shape up for a while now.  Deets inside…

 According to reports, 33-year-old Nick & 44-year-old Mariah are divvying up money and assets as we type as they prepare to file official divorce papers.  TMZ reports:

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon separated back in May — and are living apart … and we’re told divorce lawyers have been negotiating a property settlement and custody agreement for months and the divorce is “a done deal.”

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ … Mariah and Nick have been living in separate houses in NYC since May. He sees the kids but that’s the extent of their contact.

So what went wrong?

Remember that interview Nick did on Big Boy‘s Morning Show back in March when he played the “celebrity chicks I banged” game?  Yeah, we knew that wasn’t going to end well.  And reportedly, that was the beginning of the end.  The overly image-conscious and “eternally 12” Mariah wasn’t feeling it.  And the interview that followed on Howard Stern‘s show where he talked about their first time having sex….didn’t help:

Nick’s appearance on Big Boy’s radio show in March was the beginning of the end. Nick played Big Boy’s game — name the 5 celebs you’ve slept with. Nick named 5, but our sources say the one that made Mariah insane was Kim Kardashian.

We’re told Mariah tore into Nick for weeks … feeling humiliated and the relationship never recovered.

We’re told it went from bad to worse when Nick went on Howard Stern and talked about Mariah not giving it up before they got hitched. She went nuclear.

We haven’t seen Mariah and Nick together in an official capacity since February when they both appeared on Sway‘s show to promote the premiere of Mariah’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” video (above).  And before that, they hit the carpet together at the SAG Awards in January (atop).  But it’s been a wrap since then.

And over on Mariah’s Instagram page, where she constantly posted pics of the two, it has been absent of a pic of the couple since Mother’s Day.

 

Unfortunately, it looks like the divorce filing is around the corner.
