It’s been years since Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon decided to end their marriage and many fans likely already assumed that the couple was officially divorced. In fact, it’s been so long that Carey has already moved on and is engaged to another man. But despite the years since Carey and Cannon’s initial split, it’s been revealed that the former power couple is still married and that Cannon is holding up the divorce.

As previously reported, Cannon and Carey initially split in August 2014 after rumors had been spreading for months that the couple’s marriage was on the rocks. After five months of separation, Cannon decided to file from divorce from Carey in December 2015.

Despite being the one who initially filed for divorce, sources say that Cannon has since refused to sign the divorce papers and that Carey has been trying to get Cannon to finalize their divorce for over a year. 

The sources say that Cannon and Carey settled all of their legal issues a long time ago by agreeing to share joint custody of their twin children Morocco and Monroe. The couple also avoided any divorce drama by striking a property settlement agreement as well, which is leaving many wondering what the hold up is on Cannon’s end.

According to sources, Cannon has yet to give Carey a legitimate legal reason of why he won’t sign off on the divorce documents. However, the sources claim that Cannon is still in love with Carey and simply doesn’t want to let her go yet.

However, if that is the case, then Cannon is fighting a losing battle against his estranged wife and time because Carey has already moved on to a new man. As previously reported, Carey began dating Australian billionaire James Packer in 2015 and by January of this year the couple became engaged.
