NICK CANNON CONFIRMS SEPARATION: NICK CANNON confirmed tabloid reports yesterday that he and MARIAH CAREY have separated. Speaking to The Insider, Nick said, "There is trouble in paradise," adding, "We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

While he didn't say why they split, he denied is was due to infidelity. And if TMZ is to be believed, that's all we'll be hearing from him on the matter. The gossip site reports Mariah has slapped him with a "completely one-sided" confidentiality agreement that exacts "severe financial penalties" if he says anything more about their uncoupling.

Mariah, however, is supposedly allowed to speak of it "on her terms" -- although at this time she's not speaking about it at all. Her rep has refused comment, only saying her focus is, quote, "on her children and her upcoming tour."

As we told you yesterday, TMZ is saying that the “divorce is a done deal” and that lawyers are currently negotiating property and custody agreements.

TAYLOR SWIFT AND JOHN MAYER DINED IN SAME RESTAURANT: Talk about an awkward moment. TAYLOR SWIFT and JOHN MAYER dined within eye shot of each other in West Hollywood last night. The awkward exes reportedly ignored each other throughout their meals and did not exchange a single word with one another the entire evening.

PAMELA ANDERSON + PINK'S HUBBY REFUSE TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE: Don't challenge PAMELA ANDERSON to take the Ice Bucket Challenge because she won't. In a post on her Facebook page she said she's not down with the ALS Association supporting animal testing.

Instead, Pam urges her fans to "find and support charities that never harm animals and which pour their time and resources into advanced, promising, human-relevant cures."

PINK'S husband CAREY HART also refused to take the challenge, but not on any moral grounds. Although he donated to ALS, he called out the whole concept  ...

After catching a ton of crap from his followers, he took to Instagram to say he was "misunderstood":

"I have nothing against what #ALS is doing to raise money. I think its a very creative idea. Earlier today I was not in the position to do the ice bucket so i opted to donate. When i did that i got a ton of hate tweets about not doing the ice bucket part. And most of the people who were saying things were using the IBC as more of a contest and social piece.

Not doing it for charity, awareness, or even promoting ALS. That is why i posted an annoyed comment about the fact that people were more interested in me dumping a bucket of water on my head rather than raising money for a horrible disease. I think it is a great and creative way to raise money but unfortunately, from what i have seen it has evolved into a pass along joke to some."
