Nick Cannon Says He “Will Never Have a Love” Like Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon may have had nine kids with five different women, but he says there’s only one he could see himself ending up with for the rest of his life, and that’s Mariah Carey.
The comedian appeared on The Hottee Talk Show Podcast on Tuesday where he confessed that his feelings for the singer have never really gone away. “I guess because I’m a true romantic, I’m a true believer in love and I allow the capsules of love to be where they lie. I’m not a timeline dude,” he said. “I will never have a love like I had with Mariah.” Cannon added, “It was literally like a fairytale with Mariah so I would rather it just be that way. I appreciate that fantasy because if I tried to go back and it wasn’t the same, I’d be like, ‘Damn, I messed it up.’ But, if I had the opportunity, if it could be the way it was, I’m there.” Cannon and Carey were married from 2008 to 2016 and share 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
Last June, Cannon also welcomed twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with DJ Abby De La Rosa. And this June, the pair announced that they are once again expecting, hinting that it might be another set of twins on the way. In July 2021, the comedian welcomed son Zen with model Alyssa Scott, but the infant died on December 5 after being diagnosed with brain cancer. He is also dad to 5-year-old Golden “Sagon” and 18-month-old Powerful Queen with former Miss Universe Guam Brittany Bell. And in January 2022, Cannon and model Bre Tiesi held a gender reveal party to announce they are expecting a baby boy this fall. So it makes sense that when Elon Musk recently confirmed the news he had welcomed twins with one of his top Neuralink executives by tweeting, “Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far,” Cannon replied, “Right there with you my Brother!”
While Cannon has been off attempting to single-handedly repopulate the planet, Carey has also since moved on, dating her boyfriend and former backup dancer Bryan Tanaka for the last six years. And although The Masked Singer host may dream of ultimately wooing her back one day, in the meantime, he’s happy Carey has chosen such a kind partner. “The dude is amazing with my kids and we got family gatherings and things together, so I truly respect it,” he said. “But come on, that’s my fantasy love. That’s somebody that I will always love.”
But before he and the pop diva can finally reunite, it sounds like Cannon is first going to have to address his own issues with monogamy as he told the All the Way with Shelley Wade podcast last month that’s been a major source of contention in his relationships. “I’m a hopeless romantic at the end of the day, so I love the concept, I love the ceremony of it,” he said. “I’ve failed miserably so many times at monogamy and relationships, but God ain’t done with me. We’re gonna figure it out.”
