This has been a long time coming. These two have been estranged, or separated or whatever for quite a while now.
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.”
Still sad about it, though. They always seemed sort of mismatched to me, but somehow made it work. Sad for ‘dem babies’, too. Interestingly enough, it seems every Hollyweird couple who insists on having lavish weddings for every anniversary eventually gets split (I’m looking at you Heidi Klum and Seal). So, note to everyone, don’t do that. You’ll get divorced.
