After months of separation amid intense coverage, Hollywood actor Nick Cannon has finally called it quits and filed for divorce from R&B icon Mariah Carey.

According to reports, Cannon filed the divorce papers in mid-December.

The timing is interesting. We found out Nick filed papers December 12. The date is relevant because on December 3, Mariah showed up 3 hours late to tape a segment for the NBC tree-lighting special. At the time we posted a story … Mariah was on the phone with her lawyers going over the terms of her property settlement. That syncs up with Nick filing papers a week later, after they hashed out a deal. (TMZ)

Carey’s estranged husband recently denied penning a diss song about her.

“I will never say anything negative about Mariah Carey. We are forever a family rooted in love… I am always an open book but personal matters are just that ‘personal’. So please respect my family and respect the process.” (All Media NY)

In October, Nick revealed there were plans to reunite with Carey for family time on the holidays.

Speaking to U.S. talk show host Meredith Viera on Friday (24Oct14), he explains, “(I’m) just staying focused on family and what’s right and getting through these times and just doing what’s right for the kids… “They’re just happy. They love mommy, they love daddy. We’ve always been people who are kind of on the go, coming and going, so their life hasn’t changed one bit. We spend holidays together, we do everything that we’re supposed to do together.” (Hollywood)

Recent reports claimed NCredible client Amber Rose and Cannon linked up for a romantic outing over the fall.

Nick Cannon stepped out to support model Amber Rose at the XXIV Karat Sparkling Wine Launch party in LA on Thursday night, further fueling speculations that the two may be an item. “They were sitting very cozy in her booth. He wouldn’t take pictures with her. He said it was her night, but clearly he didn’t want to because he didn’t want people to speculate on their relationship.” (In Touch Weekly)
