Couple has been separated since May.
TMZ is reporting that not only have Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon begun divorce proceedings, but they've been apart for several months already. Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ that Mariah and Nick have been living in separate houses in NYC since May. Cannon sees the kids but that's the extent of their contact.
The beginning of the split is rumored to be Nick's appearance on Big Boy's radio show back in March, during which Nick named five celebrities that he has slept with. Nick named five (Mariah, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger, Selina Ebanks, and Kim Kardashian), but TMZ's sources say it was the Kim Kardashian reveal that drove Carey away.
Sources also claim that Carey feels that Nick is taking every job that's offered to him despite being fine monetarily, keeping him away from the kids for extended periods of time.
Nick reportedly earned $75 million for the family since 2011.
