Mariah Carey and Nick Cannons marriage hit a rough patch after rumors began swirling that BOTH stars have been cheating,” reports the National Enquirer.

Umm… what rumors? According to the tabloid, Carey was spotted “flirting up a storm” with Nas at the rapper’s birthday party on September 12. The singer was noticeably “NOT wearing her wedding ring” at the bash, says the mag.

OK, that was almost a month ago, and we’re just hearing about it now? Anyway, the magazine goes on to allege that Cannon was “also jealous over the long hours Mariah spent helping pal Arsenio Hall plan the launch of his recently debuted talk show.” We’re not even going to touch that one. The Enquirer further claims Carey has suspected Cannon of cheating, quoting a so-called “source” as saying, “I think she fears Nick’s wandering eye.”

“Things have just gone from bad to worse for them,” notes the tab’s “insider,” who adds, “Perhaps the only answer right now is divorce.”

Oh, please. The mag has been touting a Carey and Cannon split virtually ever since the pair got married in 2009. It wasn’t true then, and it’s still not true now. In fact, Carey just posted a Twitter shot of her cleavage on Cannon’s birthday, along with the caption, “Happy Birthday to my Hubby @NickCannon… ‘my baby I’m waiting on youuuu.'” So it’s safe to say that all is good with the couple. In any case, a rep for Carey tells Gossip Cop the Enquirer’s story is “stupid” and “not true.”
