Mariah 'calls Cannon a man-child'


Mariah Carey reportedly thinks Nick Cannon is a "man-child".

The 44-year-old singer and her husband tied the knot in 2008 and have twins Moroccan and Monroe together. Recently their marriage has been plagued by split rumours, and Nick has admitted he and Mariah have been living separately over the last few months. It seems things are complicated for the couple, with Mariah apparently unimpressed by her spouse's behaviour. "Mariah has told friends she's bored with Nick and that they had been drifting apart for well over a year before he moved out in May. His friends are saying he's been living in a hotel because the rows between them had become so bad," a source told British magazine Closer.

‘She's described Nick as a 'man-child' and says she can't deal with his immaturity’

"She's described Nick as a 'man-child' and says she can't deal with his immaturity - she feels they don't have anything in common anymore and that he still wants to lead the life of a carefree bachelor, while she prefers nights in with the kids."

Mariah is said to be angered by Nick's openness about their living arrangements, which he discussed during an interview earlier this month. There have been claims it was the America's Got Talent host who made the decision to leave, apparently tired of the tension between them.

"Nick doesn't want to live under Mariah's terms anymore and he's fed up with all the bickering," the source added.

The songstress has yet to speak out about the situation. She did release a statement through her representative though, stating her priority is looking after the couple's kids.

“I am not commenting on Mariah's personal life, but Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour,” the statement read.
