After reports about the split between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon surfaced yesterday (Aug. 21), the latter has confirmed the news.

Nick openly told The Insider that he and his wife haven't been living together for months and that they've been going through issues for a while.

“There’s trouble in paradise," the rapper, actor and 'America's Got Talent' host said. "We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

Chatter about their split started when Nick did two interviews where he candidly spoke about his sex life -- first revealing the famous women he's slept with and then his own bedroom antics with Mariah. The broadcasts reportedly infuriated the songstress, especially when he admitted that he slept with Kim Kardashian. The couple's relationship hasn't been the same since.

Nick denies that cheating became a factor in the fall out and is focused on his three-year-old twins, Monroe and Moraccan.

“My main focus is my kids,” he tells The Insider.

Nick and Mariah have been married since 2008.
