Singer speaks about “misery” after split from presenter husband

While it’s her estranged husband who has been doing most of the talking so far, Mariah Carey has finally opened up about her “misery” after her alleged split from Nick Cannon.

The singer was speaking about her upcoming tour to promote her most recent album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse, when she appeared to reference her relationship woes to her interviewer.

The 44-year-old said of the inspiration behind her track list: “Each song is a different side of who I am and in some of them there’s a lot of truths that I’m talking about…Some of them are kind of sad and almost too sad, really. I call it the misery.”

TV presenter Nick first broke the news of the couple’s split back in August, revealing that there was “trouble in paradise” and that the couple had been living separately for a few months.

At the time, Mariah’s rep refused to comment beyond saying that she would be focusing on her children, and her latest comments give the first peek into how the Heartbreaker singer is dealing with the split.

Mariah and Nick raised eyebrows back in 2008 by tying the knot after just six weeks of dating, before going on to welcome twins Monroe and Moroccan in 2011.
