Earlier this week, the GossipCenter reported that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were rumored to be getting divorced, and now Mr. Cannon himself has confirmed the news.

While chatting with The Insider, the “America’s Got Talent” hunk shared, “We have been living in separate houses for a few months. Right now my main focus is my kids.”

Similarly, and E! News source previously noted, "They have been living apart for a while. This is not all of a sudden. There have been issues between them for a while. They are not getting along. She wants to end it and it has been in the works for months, which is why her house in the Bahamas and the house in Bel Air are on the market."

Among the aforementioned issues is the fact that earlier this year, Nick bragged to radio deejay Big Boy about bedding Kim Kardashian years ago, in addition to Selita Ebanks and Nicole Scherzinger. "That made Mariah insane and humiliated. She tore into Nick for weeks."
