Host speaks out about ex and her new boyfriend

Nick Cannon Says He Is Still ‘Shattered’ Over Split From Mariah Carey, Comments On Diva’s Boyfriend

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had been causing a bit of a stir in recent months seeing as the amicable exes were spotted on a number of occasions spending evenings together and acting affectionately following the initial split between Carey and her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka.

Rumors, of course, swirled that the former couple, who separated in 2014, were attempting to rekindle things. When Cannon openly stated to reporters that they would always be “official,” fans of the pair were hopeful that the diva and the America’s Got Talent host would get back together.

These hopes, however, did not result in a rekindled romance as Carey began seeing Tanaka once more, which has Carey and Cannon enthusiasts confused. Well, it turns out that Nick Cannon is certainly not over the superstar, and Carey’s ex even still describes himself as being “broken” and “shattered” over the demise of their marriage.

Cannon was questioned about his relationship with Carey and about whether he’s moved on from the mother of his twins, Moroccan and Monroe, when he appeared at the Kids Choice Sports Awards. Entertainment Tonight shares the words of the host and entertainer.

“I can’t. I’m broken… I’m shattered,” Cannon responded.

He also noted, “I don’t have a girlfriend. I’m always dating. Why not? I’m a single man, I’m supposed to date.”

Although Nick Cannon is keeping busy on the dating scene, the star has a strong love for the songstress, and the two have admirably handled their separation and divorce; especially when it comes to parenting their children. The former couple is sure to be present at all major milestones and family holidays and have each stated that they talk every day.

As noted, Mariah has moved on since her and Cannon’s separation. The diva was engaged to billionaire James Packer until this past fall when he dumped Mariah, sending her into the arms of Tanaka. Carey is said to be back on with her back up dancer after a brief split, and Cannon admitted that Mariah’s current boyfriend gets a pass from him.

“She’s got a boyfriend! He’s a nice guy,” Cannon told ET.

The entertainer added that his marriage to Mariah Carey was a very “special time” and reminded fans that he and Carey made some amazing children together.

It’s clear that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey still have a very special bond and that Cannon appreciates the superstar for her diva ways. Unfortunately, not everyone is a fan of Mariah’s behavior after the singer was cut from Will Ferrell’s latest funny flick, The House, for arriving four hours late to the set and then refusing to partake in shots that Carey had agreed upon prior to the day of the shoot, as Business Insider relays.
