Speculation of a split between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon has been brewing for months, and on Thursday the America’s Got Talent host confirmed there’s “trouble in paradise” and that he and the “We Belong Together” singer have been living apart.
With gigs all over the country, the couple was often split up leaving Cannon, 33, to flirt with beautiful women and Carey, 44, to seethe in her jealousy, a source exclusively tells RadarOnline.com.
“He was in moderate spirits,” a source who recently spent time with Cannon told Radar.
“You could tell that he definitely had something on his mind. The issue is that Nick and Mariah don’t trust each other.”
As documented on social media, Cannon was often surrounded by women eager to spend time with him.
“Mariah thinks that when Nick travels that he cheats on her! Mariah is super jealous and things are clearly not good between them,” the insider added.
In July Cannon celebrated the launch of his Ncredible Tablet at the Kia Malibu estate where he was more than happy to get touchy with female party-goers.
“There’s trouble in paradise…we have been living in separate houses for a few months,” Cannon said on Thursday.
But the father of two denies that infidelity has anything to do with it and was quick to say his kids are his priority.
“My main focus is my kids,” he said.
Carey and Cannon’s marriage has likely been crumbling for longer than he’s willing to admit, as Radar previously reported.
