It seems that the rumors cropping up all summer of an impending split between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are getting closer and closer to having a grain of truth. According to Page Six, the couple’s marital problems are escalating to unfixable levels.

“He hasn’t been staying at their home,” an insider told the site. “He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.”

The couple have been together for six years, after marrying in 2008 to the surprise of many, considering their 12-year age gap. In 2011 they became parents to twins Moroccan and Monroe, so it’s sad for multiple reasons to hear that their marriage is on the rocks.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Mariah sent a bodyguard to keep an eye out on Nick, who was hosting lavish pool parties in Las Vegas. “The security guard wasn’t there to keep the girls away from him,” said Page Six’s insider. “It was to keep him away from the girls.”

In July, the pair placed their $13 million Bel Air mansion for sale.

Though most signs point to trouble, Nick was seen wearing his wedding ring in public as recently as this week, so who knows what’s really going on behind the scenes! Only time will tell if Mariah and Nick can pull through.
