The America's Got Talent host has revealed more details about what led to their split.

Mariah Carey was livid with Nick Cannon for revealing the former couple once had sex to her Hero tune.

The rapper and TV personality opened up about the row during a recent taping of The Amber Rose Show, which airs in America on Friday night (19Aug16), explaining he got into so much trouble with his estranged wife for being too candid about one romantic rendezvous.

Asked if he and Mariah had ever made out to her music, he said, "I answered this question while I was married. Mistake. Yes I have."

"She didn't like the fact that I told the world that we had sex to her music - but it was true, I gave her the honey," Nick told Amber, before revealing the tune in question was the singer's 1993 hit.

"When a Hero comes along. That's what I'm saying. She wrote it."

Nick caused jaws to drop in 2014 when he listed women he'd been intimate with in a video interview with Power 106's Big Boy a few months ahead of the announcement he and Mariah decided to split. At the time he claimed the whole purpose of living in Los Angeles is to "have sex with actresses, singers, models" and named Mariah, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger, Selita Ebanks and Kim Kardashian as his exes.

Cannon and Mariah, who share twins Moroccan and Monroe, are currently attempting to finalise their divorce, so the singer can marry her billionaire businessman fiance James Packer.

The former couple was married for six years before splitting in 2014.
