The Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon marriage has finally met the end & the pair are headed for divorce, after new reports from TMZ that Nick secretly filed divorce papers with his lawyers Thursday, January 15th.
The couple separated back in May, have lived separately and although both parties tried to keep the matter out of the public, their lawyers were working non-stop on a settlement, custody paperwork, and separating the couple’s titles & fortunes.
The Cannon-Carey marriage began to hit a few bumps in the road after Nick made some not so attractive comments during a radio interview. Nick Cannon’s interview with Los Angeles, California radio station Power 106’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood featured a segment in which Cannon revealed previous celebrity women he’d had sexual relations with — basically bragging. One of them was Kim Kardashian — a fact Mariah Carey reportedly was particularly mad about on top of the egregious disrespect Nick placed on their union. (View that interview below.)
Again, although the couple chose to keep their impending divorce a private matter, it’s known fact the couple would eventually make it official with one or the other going foward with a divorce petition.
The couple wed in 2008 and have two children, twins Monroe & Moroccan.
