Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s six-year marriage is hanging by a thread and the singer wants to do something about it.
According to sources, the “Elusive Chanteuse” had Cannon over to their New York apartment to talk about their marriage and kids, 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
“She told him she needed to get out of town and she was taking the kids with her,” a source told E! News. “Nick was fine with it. The reports about him being concerned about the welfare of the kids aren’t true. If he was worried, the kids wouldn’t be with her, period. He thinks she’s a good mom.”
Cannon, who last week confirmed there was “trouble in paradise,” was spotted leaving their apartment Tuesday wearing a baseball cap that read “Saved.”
According to reports, Carey was devastated that Cannon opened up about their crumbling marriage on The Insider and has told him that there would be one announcement about their divorce – and it would be from her team.
“Nick said he was fine with this, too,” a source told E! News. “He knows he really upset her by speaking out of turn last week and has apologized for it.”
Carey and Cannon’s marriage has been plagued with break up rumors for some time. A source told People that the singer’s professional concerns may have contributed to the most recent tension.
“When things don’t go well career-wise, sometimes you turn on your other half,” the source continued. “While she can be very down-to-earth and hilarious, she can also be high-maintenance.”
Carey, who has been spotted around New York several times since the news broke, has yet to comment, but her rep said that she is “focusing on her children and her upcoming tour.”
