Nick Cannon Files for Divorce from Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are officially calling it quits. After months of separation, the “America’s Got Talent” host has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of six years.
According to TMZ, Cannon was the first one to file for divorce, ahead of his estranged wife on Dec. 12.
The pop diva made headlines just one week before Cannon’s reported filing when she showed up late to tape a performance for NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” on Dec. 3.
Carey was reportedly on the phone with her lawyers going over terms of her property settlement, which coincides with Cannon filing papers a week later, after they worked out a deal.
Reports of their split first broke in August. The couple wed in April 2008 in the Bahamas and share three-and-a-half-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
On Wednesday, Carey officially announced her Las Vegas residency. She will headline a series of 18 shows, entitled “Mariah Carey #1’s,” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in May and July.
