Nick Cannon recently made clear how much he still cares for his ex-wife Mariah Carey. Cannon recently disclosed that he had pictures of Mariah Carey on his wall when he was just 12 years old in an exclusive interview with The Shade Room in his Los Angeles studio.
Regarding his enduring affection, Cannon responds, “Like the greatest? In fact, I constantly bring it up. As soon as it gains traction, my fans begin to criticize me. But when I was 12 years old, I had photos of Mariah Carey on my wall, and she ultimately became my wife. She is also the most coolest individual I have ever met.
Cannon and Carey tied the knot back in 2008 and currently share two children together: 11-year-old twins named Moroccan and Monroe. Despite breaking up in 2014 and finalizing their divorce two years later, the Wild ’n Out star still had nothing but praise for his ex-wife.
“I get a lot of this delightful disposition from her,” Nick states. “She’s just always happy, always doing for others. No matter what’s happening in life. I’m like, ‘Wow, a person can really operate like that and don’t allow negative energy into they space. “When I found that out about how remarkable she was, that woman is not human. She’s a gift from God.”
This is certainly not Nick’s first time on record complementing Mariah Carey.
Last year during a podcast, Cannon even said he’d reconcile their relationship if their romance was back to “the way it was.”
He states, “I’m a true romantic. I’m a true believer in love. I will never have a love like I did with Mariah. It was literally like a fairy tale with Mariah, so I would rather it just be that way, and I appreciate that fantasy because if I try to go back and it wasn’t the same, I’d be like, ‘Damn, I messed it up.’”
The Shade Room also asked if Nick would ever want to marry again, in which he replies his “focus now is my children and my business.”
Nick Cannon also addresses his other four baby mamas, stating “I love them! They’re amazing!” But he could commit to one of them because “that’s a disservice to the other ones.”
