Mum of two Mariah split from husband of six years Nick Cannon, after meeting him on the set of her music video ‘Bye Bye.’

Cannon has since had the large ‘Mariah’ tattoo on his back covered up with a giant Crucifix, and has been pictured with a number of women since the split. He has not confirmed that he's dating anyone new.

The couple have twins together, Moroccan and Monroe, who turned three this August, the same month when they confirmed they were living seperately.

At the beginning of December, the couple's divorce was confirmed, with the two allegedly fighting over custody of their two children.
