Nick Cannon, comedian, actor, host and all-around entrepreneur, confirmed that he and his wife, pop superstar Mariah Carey, have been living separated for the last few months.

The 33-year-old “America’s Got Talent” host said that there is definitely some trouble in paradise and that he and Mariah have been living in separate houses for the last few months.

He has also denied the reports that the split occurred due to someone’s infidelity.

Cannon stated that his main focus now is his kids, the 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Mariah Carey’s representative said that he is not going to comment on the high-pitched singer’s personal life, but he will say that the 44-year-old singer is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.

The last time Cannon commented on their marriage was in May, when he denied the divorce rumors.

He said then that one has to ignore that stuff because it’s something different every week and if one would pay attention to it, I would start bothering the person. He also said that the gossip affects the credibility of the so-called newspapers.

Who’s affecting whose credibility now?

The pair got married in secret in 2008, in the Bahamas, after only six weeks of dating.

There were a few speculations going around on the cause of the split- from infidelity to not being happy with public statements.

According to one story, Carey has suspected that Cannon was cheating, so she hired security guards to make sure he stayed away from other women during club appearances.
