Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are having a marriage crisis, claims the National Enquirer.

“What began as behind-the-scenes bickering has turned public as a bitter Mariah launches media attacks on the father of her 2-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe,” says the magazine.

According to the outlet’s “source,” Carey has “had it with Nick.”

What’s the problem?

The Enquirer doesn’t really seem to know.

It offers a vague theory that Cannon “may be jealous over the handsome singers Mariah has been working with,” but most of the article is concerned with treating Carey’s jokes about Cannon in interviews as though they’re red flags for an impending divorce.

The tab says they’re living “separate lives” — apparently because Cannon and Carey were apart on Valentine’s Day.

Of course, we’ve been down this road with the Enquirer before.

In 2010, and again in 2012, and again last year, over and over the supermarket tabloid claims that Carey and Cannon are on the brink of a split.

And the magazine is never right.

The Enquirer whiffs yet again with this new report.

A rep says there’s “no truth whatsoever” to the story about the couple having problems.
