Are Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon calling it quits? Could be.

“They’ve been living apart for months,” a source told People.com. “He’s been staying in hotels.”

Married for six years, the couple spent Mother’s Day and Father’s Day together with their 3-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, but the source said that things between them “have been bad for awhile.”

The pop diva, 45, and the current America’s Got Talent host, 33, surprised fans by tying the knot in a secret ceremony in 2008, just weeks after they began dating.

SERENA SINGS

She’s seeking her third U.S. Open title, but Serena Williams replaced her tennis racket with a microphone at a karaoke event this week.

The top-ranked athlete performed Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend on Wednesday night at Arena in New York City. “I’m really nervous,” she told the crowd before dancing and swaying her hips in a mini dress as she sang the song in falsetto and attempted high notes.

She was joined by fellow tennis player Jack Sock, Orange Is the New Black stars Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba, Glee actor Darren Criss and comedian Kathy Griffin at the event for Delta Airlines.

Williams, a karaoke enthusiast and No. 1 seed in the upcoming tournament, called the singing sport “my favorite thing.”

“I do like ’80s, ’90s rock because it’s good for my voice,” she said before she performed. “The thing about karaoke is picking a song that works for your voice, that way if you sing like a cat — like I do — you can still sound pretty good.”

HAMM WEIGHS IN

Jon Hamm, a St. Louis native, says he hopes “cooler heads prevail” in the Missouri city of Ferguson and “people come through it for the better.”

In London for a screening of his film Million Dollar Arm, Hamm talked about the riots that followed the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer, saying, “It’s difficult to watch because it’s my hometown.”

But the Mad Men star supports the protesters. He says “they have a legitimate reason to protest, and they’re exercising their right to do that, and so hopefully, in the end, people will come through it stronger.”

He said cities should not “be measured on how they have failed, but how they get through and how they clean up after their mistakes.”

REMEMBERING AMY

Amy Winehouse will be commemorated with a statue in the London neighborhood where she lived and worked.

The late singer’s family says the statue will be unveiled in Camden Town in the market on Sept. 14, which would have been her 31st birthday.
