The end of an era.

Looks like all those years of over-the-top vow renewals just weren't enough to save Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. After six years of marriage, the power couple has officially officially called it quits, TMZ reports.

Cannon apparently filed for divorce on December 12, about a week after he and Carey reached a final financial agreement. That likely took a while—the Daily Mail reports that they have a combined net worth of $325 million. According to TMZ, Cannon won't get any of the money from Carey's high-profile residency in Las Vegas, but with gigs like America's Got Talent and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, we think he'll be just fine.

The couple, parents to four-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, were initially tight-lipped about their separation, but Cannon confirmed it on Good Morning America last month. "We'll forever be family," he said.

Let's remember the good times by watching their ridiculously ornate vow renewal at Disney World. If a couple that dresses up like cartoon royalty together can't make it, who can?
