Nick Cannon Filed for Divorce from Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon has officially filed for divorce from his wife and the mother of his children, Mariah Carey.
Cannon announced their separation back in August, saying: “There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months. My main focus is my kids.”
During the separation, Carey remained at their Manhattan apartment with the couple’s twins, Moroccan and Monroe, who turn 4 in April, while Cannon stayed at a hotel.
In 2008, the couple surprised fans with a secret wedding in the Bahamaa, after a six-week courtship. In May 2013, for their fifth anniversary, they renewed their vows at Disneyland.
TMZ reported today that the 34-year-old actor filed papers on Dec. 12 to legally finalize his seperation from Carey. The filing came just days before the 44-year-old singer performed at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting. She allegedly missed a pre-taping for the event because she was working out the settlement with her lawyer.
