Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are officially separated. The divorce of the two stars has been finalized. The news was confirmed by People magazine.
Mariah and Nick stopped being a couple quite some time ago. The pair filed for divorce for the first time at the end of 2014. They briefly reunited at certain points and Mariah and Nick have remained in very good terms. However, they are now officially separated.
Well, one of the main reasons why Mariah and Nick have remained so close is actually linked to the fact that they are parents to twin children. So, the pair has managed to stay friends for the sake of the kids. And they are still focusing on what is best for them.
“What’s most important is they’re doing it rights when it comes to their kids,” one source explained. “What star couple do you know that still spends every holiday together? It’s all about ‘dem babies,'” the insider concluded. It remains unknown if the finalization of the divorce has anything to do with the fact that Mariah and her boyfriend James Packer have recently separated.
Actually, the singer has been in the spotlight lately with this split. Mariah and James have been a couple for several months and some rumors even indicated that the two were going to get married. However, something happened between the two while they were on vacation in Greece and this determined their separation. The reason of the split has not been confirmed, but some sources claimed that the separation occurred because of James’s bad behavior.
Other sources claimed that he was jealous of Mariah, who has been spending a lot of time in the company of one of her dancers. Of course, James did not like this. Some source also claimed that the split may not be permanent, meaning that there are chances for Mariah and James to get back together. The only thing that is certain at this point is that Mariah is determined to keep the USD 10 million engagement ring she received from James and she continued to be spotted with this piece of jewelry, despite the separation.
