The latest celebrity relationship rumor is that diva songstress and former “American Idol” judge Mariah Carey is separated from her husband Nick Cannon.
TMZ reports the couple has been living apart for months and alleges that it stems from Cannon speaking openly about his sex life, both with Mariah and pre-Mariah — including that he once slept with Kim Kardashian.
The New York Post’s Page Six adds that Carey has been suspicious that the “America’s Got Talent” host has cheated on her, so much so that at an event in Las Vegas, she ordered a security guard to keep an eye on him. A source claims, “The security guard wasn’t there to keep the girls away from him. It was to keep him away from the girls.”
Other problems being alleged about the pair are that Cannon is frustrated with Carey surrounding herself with “yes men,” while she’s frustrated that Cannon accepts every gig that comes along, especially since they don’t need the money. In addition to the “AGT” hosting job, Cannon recently released an album, produces several shows and is executive producing “Drumline 2″ for VH1.
Carey and Cannon married in 2008 and welcomed twins Monroe and Moroccan in April 2011. They were all smiles as a family back at Easter time but have not been photographed together in months. They also sold their Bel-Air mansion in July, though Radar Online said at the time it was because they wanted to move to the East Coast full time.
