Cannon spoke to Yahoo's "The Insider" host Chris Spencer (Aug.21) and confirmed that he and Carey are currently living apart.

"There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months," reveals Cannon, though he denies that the separation from his wife was caused by infidelity. He adds that his "main focus" right now is the couple's 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

Rumors began to creep up early in the week after the New York Post's Page Six reported Carey was growing suspicious that the "America's Got Talent" host had cheated on her, as well as other sources stating Carey hated how candid her husband was about their sex life during interviews.

Cannon did not reveal whether or not either party would be filing for an official separation at this time.
