Nick Cannon has confirmed to The Insider magazine that he and his wife Mariah Carey have been living apart for some months.
This confirmation came on Thursday, a day after reports surfaced that the couple of six years are headed for divorce.
"There is trouble in paradise," Cannon told The Insider, "We have been living in separate houses for a few months."
Cannon didn't say the cause of their separation but he dismissed the idea that his rumoured infidelity was a factor.
"My main focus is my kids", he said.
Nick and Mariah tied the knot in the Bahamas in 2008, after dating for only less than a month.
They have two children, twins Morroccan and Monroe.
