Sad news: It looks like it's officially over for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon.

TMZ reports that Nick Cannon has filed for divorce from his wife of more than five years. The site reports that the actor quietly filed papers on Dec. 12, just a few months after publicly revealing that the couple's marriage was in trouble.

In August 2014, Cannon admitted that he and Carey have been living apart for several months. Just one month later, in September 2014, the former Nickelodeon star took to Twitter to defend his "unconditional love" for his wife, saying:

"I will forever be indebted to her for blessing me with our children… I will always love her unconditionally for this and so much more. @MariahCarey is an amazing Mother and I trust her wholeheartedly…”

Cannon and Carey have been married since 2008 and have two adorable, three-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
