Mariah Carey gags Nick Cannon + her rep addresses separation...

Following Nick Cannon's confirmation of their separation this week, a rep for Mariah Carey tells Us Weekly, that "Mariah is focusing on her children and her upcoming tour." And if you're anticipating some juice in one of Nick's comedy sketches, be very disappointed! 

According to TMZ (via a source close to the couple) Mariah put a gag order on him so tight it will cost him some serious financial penalties if he speaks about her. Apparently, the confidentiality agreement is completely one-sided. 

While Nick can't speak about their divorce at all, Mariah has the right to announce the split on her terms. So his announcement this week probably served as a generous freebie on her behalf. I can see this getting nasty already. Though, how touching.
