It's officially splitsville for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Mr. Cannon confirmed that he has separated from the Grammy-winning songbird after six years of marriage.

On Monday (Dec. 8), the 38-year-old entertainer shared the announcement during an interview on 'Good Morning America,' stating, "We'll forever be family. At the same time, we're there for our children, making them the number one priority and understanding they're loved and can have an amazing holiday."

Cannon, who calls himself an "entrepretainer," said he and Carey will spend the holidays with their fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe who are both 3 and 1/2 years old.

"It's always a house full of people and pets and dogs. Christmas Eve we like to have sleigh rides and reindeer," he said.

The 'America's Got Talent' host was so inspired by his little ones that he wrote a holiday book, 'Roc and Roe's 12 Days of Christmas,' about them. "It's a lot of fun. So when you read the book, everything seems over the top, but it really happens," he said.

News of Mariah and Nick's marital problems first surfaced this August.

“There’s trouble in paradise,” said the rapper and actor in an interview. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

Subsequently, Cannon covered his famous tattoo of "Mariah Carey" and was rumored to be dating his client, recently-single Amber Rose.
