Mariah Carey, the “Vision of Love” songstress is separating from husband Nick Cannon – a comedian, says a Huffington Post report on Wednesday. They are the latest – but definitely not the only – couple to be rumored to be involved in an extremely troubled relationship. Like reports of the troubled relationship between Beyonce and Jay-Z which have flown for three months now, the cause of the Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon troubles is cheating.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are living separately, according to the New York Post’s Page Six. That report claims that Carey has suspected Cannon of cheating on her. She has gone as far as to have even hired security guards to make sure that he stays away from other women during his cub appearances.

Later in the day, on Thursday, Cannon confirmed to The Wrap that the couple is indeed experiencing serious difficulties in their marriage. He confirmed that the two of them are living separately. He said that the part of the story regarding their living separately has been the case for a few months.

The report says that they have been fighting a great deal. Cannon has not been staying at their home. Instead, he has been living out of hotels. When asked about the situation between the couple, a representative for Carey said that comments about the famous singer’s personal life are never made.

Yet, other sources say that Carey was concerned when Cannon hosted pool parties in Las Vegas earlier this year. During the pool parties, Carey was concerned about Cannon’s drinking of alcoholic beverages. According to a source, Carey felt that Cannon’s drinking gets him in trouble. In the recent past, Carey has also made headlines after having been critical of the temper of Cannon’s on-stage jokes.

In 2008, 44-year-old Mariah Carey married the 33-year-old host of “America’s Got Talent,” Nick Cannon. Last month, the two sold their Bel-Air mansion for an estimated $10 million. The story behind that sale involved word that they wanted to raise their two children – twins Monroe and Moroccan – in New York City. New York City is where Carey owns a triplex in Tribeca.

This week, it was also published that the Beyonce and Jay-Z relationship is not going well at all either. Though Beyonce continually tries to put a happy face on their marriage, the rumors from inside sources say the end is near. Latest rumors about Beyonce and Jay are that there will be a separation when the “On the Run” tour is completed next month in Paris.
