Those still holding out hope for a reconciliation between Mariah Carey and estranged husband Nick Cannon may want to brace themselves. Nick confirmed last week that he and his wife of six years had been living apart for months, though no divorce bombs were dropped (at least not officially). However, it now appears that a divorce announcement is near, and the pair have convened this week to plan their approach.
According to E! News, Mariah has hit her limit with her 11-years-junior spouse and the fact that he’s been speaking out so publicly on their relationship. The site’s source says that she’s “done taking a passive role” in the split and called Nick to join her at the apartment this week to hash things out.
"She told him she needed to get out of town and she was taking the kids with her,” the insider dishes. “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."
We are glad to hear that #DemBabies — aka 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe — won’t likely be subjected to too much drama in the custody department. But what else did Nick and Mariah discuss during their powwoww?
"She told him there would be one announcement about the divorce and it was going to come from her team,” the source explains. “Nick said he was fine with this too. He knows he really upset her by speaking out of turn last week and has apologized for it."
Though we’re heartbroken that this adorable couple is probably headed for splitsville, it does soften the blow knowing that they’re remaining cordial and putting their kids first.
