This will be the third marriage for Carey, who split from estranged husband Nick Cannon in August 2014. The America’s Got Talent host filed for divorce from Carey in January 2015. 

During a recent interview with DuJour magazine, Cannon said he “highly doubts” he’ll ever marry again.

Carey and Cannon are the parents of 4-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. Prior to Cannon, Carey was married to Tommy Mottola for five years.

E! was first to report the news.
