Rumours have been swirling this month that Nick and Mariah are close to splitting, fuelled by Nick's recent revelations about his ex-lover Kim Kardashian and tendency to go TMI when it comes to his love life with Mariah…
And now, Nick has confirmed to The Insider that things aren't quite right at the minute.
The Insider's Chris Spencer told the programme that he'd spoken to Nick that day. "He said, yes they are going through a rough patch but it's nothing to do with infidelity. He didn't confirm it was over but he did say they had been living separately for a few months now. The main thing he told me was he wants to make sure his kids are okay."
Mariah and Nick are parents to three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
The couple are both prolific tweeters but neither has referenced marriage troubles on their Twitter accounts. Mariah has not posted since 20 August, while Nick is tweeting as normal about his projects.
Mariah and Nick married at the singer's home in the Bahamas in 2008 after a whirlwind romance of just a few weeks.
Despite their quick marriage, the couple had always been seen as having a rock solid relationship, so the revelation they're living apart has come as a shock to many fans.
"All these things people are saying about Mariah & Nick is making me sad! I thought they'd be the one couple to make it!!" wrote one Twitter user, while another said: "Nick Cannon treats Mariah like a queen, it's sad to hear they not together."
Others have pointed out Nick has an ENORMOUS tattoo of Mariah's name across his back… "Nick and Mariah splitting? That's going to be a heck of a tattoo removal," tweeted one commenter. "Hope they work it out tho."
