Nick Cannon has confirmed that he and Mariah Carey have been living apart for several months but that’s probably all we’ll hear from him on the subject for a while.

Reports suggest that Carey has all but muzzled him from saying anything more.

“There is trouble in paradise … we have been living in separate houses for a few months,” the 33-year-old “America’s Got Talent” host told The Insider TV show.

No, the rumors of cheating are not true, he shared. And his “main focus” right now are the couple’s 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

TMZ, which contends that the divorce is a “done deal,” reported on Friday that Carey, 44, doesn’t want her hubby of six years to say anything more. The website reported that Cannon signed a confidentiality agreement barring him from talking unless he wants to pay “severe financial penalties.”

Darn. We love it when Cannon overshares, like he did in a radio interview in March in which he revealed the names of five celebrities he has had sex with.

He said he couldn’t name all of his ex-lovers because there were too many.

“You kidding me this is L.A.? That's the whole purpose of it, you have sex with actresses, singers, models,” he said.

Pressed to name just five he said: “That’s easy. OK, Mariah Carey, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger, Selita Ebanks, oh, Kim Kardashian.”

He briefly dated Kardashian back in 2006.

“You just forgot (about her) because there have been a lot of people since me,” he joked.

Aparently Carey didn’t find anything funny about his TMI moment, especially the reference to Kardashian, now Mrs. Kanye West.

The next week, in another radio interview, he tried to smooth things over by saying Carey “doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is. She doesn’t pay attention to that. She doesn’t care when I talk about our sex life because our sex life is amazing.”

Make that was amazing.
