Let's hope Mariah Carey has mastered the art of letting go. According to a new report from TMZ, the singer's estranged husband, Nick Cannon, has filed for divorce after six years of marriage. 

TMZ claims that Cannon filed papers on Dec. 12, a little over a week after his ex made headlines for missing her rehearsal for the 2014 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting. At the time, the site reported that she had been on the phone, allegedly dealing with an issue related to Cannon.

In any case, the divorce has been a long time coming. America's Got Talent host Cannon, 33, first confirmed the two were living apart back in August, when he told The Insider With Yahoo that they had been in separate houses "for a few months."

Two months later, in October, the Drumline actor stopped by the Meredith Vieira Show, where he opened up a little about their split. "It's truly just staying focused on family and what's right and getting through these times and just doing what's right for the kids," he explained, referring to twins Moroccan and Monroe, 3.

"We've always been people who are kinda on the go, coming and going, so their life hasn't changed one bit," he added. "We spend holidays together, we do everything that we're supposed to do together."
