According to sources close to the actor, Cannon was aware of his wife's disorder and was always supportive of her.

Carey is now working on her follow-up to 2014's Me.

The 48-year-old is now in therapy and taking medication for bipolar II, which involves periods of depression and hypomania, and often involves irritability. Though the former pair has been divorced for nearly two years now, Cannon has spoken very highly of his former wife and still has love and respect for her.

MARIAH Carey has said she is no longer living in "denial and isolation" after being treated for bipolar disorder.

On Wednesday, Mariah went public with her diagnosis in a People magazine article, revealing she first learned she had the disorder in 2001, when she was hospitalized after suffering a physical and emotional breakdown, but she refused to believe it.

"There were a lot of issues".

"I've been hard at work, feeling inspired by each of your stories and uplifted by your overwhelming support", she wrote on Instagram Saturday (April 14). "I was so terrified of losing everything". "It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn't do that anymore".

"I got back to doing what I love - writing songs and making music", the mother-of-two said.

She said: "I'm just in a really good place right now, where I'm comfortable discussing my struggles with bipolar II disorder".

She came forward, she said, because she wants to "get to a place where the stigma is lifted from people going through anything alone". "It can be incredibly isolating".
