Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, at least when it comes to Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s relationship.

Nick confirmed there was “trouble in paradise” between the two last week, before reportedly signing a confidentiality agreement at Mimi’s behest.

Now TMZ is alleging that it was the “America’s Got Talent” host who left Mariah and not the other way around.

A source tells TMZ that Nick is “deeply concerned about Mariah’s emotional state and is ending the marriage for the well being of their kids.”

Their two children, twins Moroccan and Monroe, are believed to be living at home with their mother while he is staying in a hotel.

It’s not clear exactly what Nick’s concerns are, but the insider refers to the “chaos” at her home and believes he is trying to end the marriage as quickly and cleanly as possible.

Get the full scoop over at and let us know what you think of Nick and Mariah’s situation in the comments!
