The fairytale of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon seems to be coming to an end at long last. The latest reports indicate that Mariah Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, has filed for divorce in California. The two have been separated for some time now, and the divorce shouldn’t be a surprise for either performer at this point. The two were married for six years.

According to the latest report from TMZ, Cannon filed the appropriate papers on December 12, 2014. Cannon has been the host of America’s Got Talent, and confirmed with the press back in August that the two were living apart. On the Meredith Vieira Show Cannon stated, “It’s truly just staying focused on family and what’s right and getting through these times and just doing what’s right for the kids”

While Cannon has talked about the split in the past, saying the two performers were living hectic lifestyles, neither has gone on record saying anything that negative at this point. Of course all of that could change as the trial moves forward, no statements were made at this time about Cannon’s filing in December.
