Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you know that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's marriage is just about done.

And now an inside source told People that the impending divorce is a result of a confluence of several circumstances.

Regarding Carey’s professional concerns, the source explained, "When things don't go well career-wise, sometimes you turn on your other half. While she can be very down-to-earth and hilarious, she can also be high-maintenance."

Meanwhile, the vast fortune shared by Nick and Mariah is also a point of potential disaster- "There is a lot to fight over. It could get contentious."
