How on earth has Kim Kardashian got caught up in Mariah's marriage dramz?!

With reports that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey‘s marriage is O-V-A-H it seems their split could be down to… Kim Kardashian!

The awkwardness began when Mariah‘s hubby was being interviewed on US radio station KPWR back in March and was asked to reveal a list of five celebrities he had slept with. When Kim popped up on the list (alongside Nicole Scherzinger and Christina Milian) Mariah apparently wasn’t happy!

And we don’t blame her.

Reacting to radio host Big Boy’s shock at his K-bomb, Nick, 33, joked: ‘You just forgot because there have been a lot of people since me.’

Ahem, classy.

‘She’s a great girl though,’ he continued obviously trying to remove a large foot from his mouth. ‘Her family are some of the most incredible people I ever met in my life.’

Nick and Kim, also 33, dated for four months back in 2006 and he claims they split over rows about Kim’s now infamous sex tape.

Mariah was reported to have felt that Nick‘s brag was a public humiliation – especially as he went on to over-share that his first sexual experience with Mariah was on their wedding night in the Bahamas.

The 44-year-old singer was obviously mortified by his frank revelations and that’s when the cracks are said to have started to appear in their six-year marriage.

Nick even admitted to another radio host Howard Stern that Mariah was a bit angry about his interview shortly afterwards, but admitted: ‘My wife, she doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is.’

The couple have three-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe and Nick has since confirmed the news saying: ‘We have been living in separate houses for a few months. [Right now] my main focus is my kids.’

Mariah has decided to keep a dignified silence about the rumours. Maybe Nick could learn a thing or two from his infinitely more classy wife…
