TMZ noted a variety of reasons for the couple’s discord–from Nick’s oversharing about past relationships with Kim Kardashian and Nicole Scherzinger, to taking too many gigs that kept him away from the family.  Ho Hum. According to the gossip mag, Nick and Mariah have been living apart since May.

Now, the Insider has a statement from Nick that the couple have indeed, been separated.

Chris Spencer the co-creator and executive producer of BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” [one of Nick’s many gigs] spoke to Nick on Thursday. Chris said, “He said ‘yes, [they’r e] going through a rough patch. There’s nothing to do with infidelity.’ He didn’t confirm that it was over, but he did say that they’ve been living separately for a few months now.”

Reports have the couple’s lawyers already negotiating custody issues surrounding their twins and financial matters for a divorce settlement. Reportedly, Mariah is worth 510 million while Nick is worth a mere 20 mil.

Nick emphasizes that his main focus right now are their kids. Twins Moroccan and Monroe are 3 years old.

  1. Perhaps she “oh Darling’ him one time to many, or couldn’t drop the pretentious BS at home. I don’t remember her being so full of herself back in the day.

  2. Hmm. Apparently the AGT judges didn’t know about it. I think Howard referenced the Nick/Mariah lovey dovey relationship earlier this season. And what about that sweet picture of Nick and Mariah during Heidi’s nightmare vision with Taylor Williamson last week?

    That said, I should have guessed they were separated. My thoughts the last few episodes regarding Nick’s wardrobe: “Man, I can’t believe Mariah would allow him to wear that.”

    Not surprised. Nick deserves better.

  3. If you look Mariah’s Instagram she hasnt posted a pic of Nick anywhere in a little over 2 months and that was Fathers Day, the last pic of him before that was Mothers day. Before that she was always posting family pics and/or her and Nick together. Lately its just been her and the kids so you can sort of see the shift. I always felt like she must be very difficult to handle, but ew he admitted to banging Kim Kardashian..yeah Id be disgusted too.

  4. Goodness can they just make an effort to fix it?
    At this point I don’t understand why celebrities bother marrying one another.
    It’s always
    Marriage, children, *5-6 years later* divorce.
    If any of them are getting marriage counseling I doubt it.

  5. I am very saddened by this news. Mariah is my favorite singer and celebrity. I am pulling for them and hope they can still make it work. : (

  6. Nick’s worth more than Mariah? Thought that would be the opposite….

  7. Didn’t they just have a lavish wedding vow renewal at Disney???? or is that someone else I’m thinking of……

  8. They had several. However, my opinion of a vow renewal is that your marriage is in trouble, unless you’ve been married for 25 years.

  9. It was a weird pairing in the first place. Nick acts like he’s a child and she is very high maintenance,

  10. 1. I wouldn’t want to spend too much time around that diva either. No matter how much money she has.
    2. A Mere 20 million dollars?? Haha
