Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey

Breakups can be messy. Feelings can be hurt, hearts can be broken and friends can be lost. And when it comes to telling people that you're no longer with someone, that can be just as complicated.

In an exclusive interview with The Insider, Nick Cannon shed some light on the problems in his marriage to Mariah Carey. “There is trouble in paradise,” the America’s Got Talent said. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

Cannon and Carey's celebrity status puts their relationship in the spotlight, which explains why he had to reveal the separation in such a public way. Do you agree with the way he went about it?
