The rumors that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are splitting after six years together were confirmed by the father of two himself on Thursday, but what does the songstress have to say about her martial problems?
Cannon explained during an interview with The Insider with Yahoo! Celebrity on Thursday, “There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
“My main focus is my kids,” he added of their two 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe. And that’s something that Carey agrees on.
“I don’t comment on Mariah’s personal life,” her rep revealed to Us Weekly on Friday, “but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”
And the “Without You” hit maker is apparently not happy at all that her estranged husband decided to comment on their split.
“Mariah was devastated about the comments Nick made to The Insider,” a source revealed to E! News. “They had agreed to work on a statement together. A joint statement was being prepared when he went and gave those quotes to The Insider.”
However, the proud mom herself has declined to comment on the troubles in her marriage; instead it’s evident that she’s been spending time on her children, as seen via Instagram.
Carey has been taking to Instagram in recent weeks to share adorable snaps of her kids, with their dad glaringly absent. In fact, there have been no pics of Cannon on the songstress’s Instagram account for quite some time.
Insiders on the set of America’s Got Talent revealed to Us Weekly that the usually bubbly host’s demeanor has changed significantly in recent months. “He’s more closed off this season,” a source revealed.
Our thoughts are with the pair and their tiny tots during this difficult time.
