"There is trouble in paradise," Cannon told the magazine. "We have been living in separate houses for a few months."

TMZ also reported that their divorce is already "a done deal," and the couple's lawyers are now negotiating a property settlement, and a custody agreement for their 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

According to the gossip site, their relationship hit a huge rough patch after Cannon was interviewed by radio personality Big Boy back in March, he named other celebrity stars he has bedded and one of them happened to be Kim Kardashian.
"That made Mariah insane and humiliated," sources told TMZ. "She tore into Nick for weeks."
The celebrity couple have been living separately for months
Another issue contributing to the power couple's split was allegedly down to Cannon's hectic work schedule, this left Carey feeling like her husband "abandoned" her and the children.
"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," another source close to Carey told E! News. "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."
