Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ … Mariah and Nick have been living in separate houses in NYC since May. He sees the kids but that’s the extent of their contact.
Our sources say … Nick’s appearance on Big Boy’s radio show in March was the beginning of the end. Nick played Big Boy’s game — name the 5 celebs you’ve slept with. Nick named 5, but our sources say the one that made Mariah insane was Kim Kardashian.
We’re told Mariah tore into Nick for weeks … feeling humiliated and the relationship never recovered.
We’re told it went from bad to worse when Nick went on Howard Stern and talked about Mariah not giving it up before they got hitched. She went nuclear.
Our sources say Mariah feels Nick has abandoned her by taking every gig that’s on the table … when they don’t need the money. She’s especially angry because it keeps him away from their kids.
For Nick’s part … we’re told he feels Mariah has become impossible because she surrounds herself with “yes men.” He says she can’t handle it when he dares to disagree with her.
We’re also told Nick is incredulous Mariah is bitching about his work ethic … he says he’s generated $75 million since 2011 for the family.

Sources say Mariah Carey and “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon are headed for a split and “living separately” after she hired security to keep him away from other women.
According to the NY Post, Mariah and Nick are separating after six years of marriage.
“He hasn’t been staying at their home. He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.”
Allegedly, Mariah suspected Nick of cheating. And when he hosted pool parties in Las Vegas earlier this year, Mariah sent a security guard to keep watch over her husband. “The security guard wasn’t there to keep the girls away from him. It was to keep him away from the girls.”
Mariah also didn’t want Nick drinking while at the Vegas gigs because she felt he “gets in trouble when he drinks.”
Thirty-three-year-old Nick and 45-year-old Mariah married in 2008. They became parents in 2010 to twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe.
Rumors swirled this week that the couple were set to officially announce their breakup, and that Nick had been staying at his grandparents’ house during a trial separation.
