For What Reason Did Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey Break Up? Their Connection is Discussed While the Actor Waxes Poetic About Their “Dream Love.”

During a recent interview, American comedian Nick Cannon spoke candidly about his ex-wife Mariah Carey, admitting that he still has a special place in his heart for her.

The 41-year-old spoke openly about his desire to get back together with the Fantasy singer during an interview on the podcast, The Hottie Talk Show.

After declaring himself a “genuine romantic” and gushing about his time spent with the 53-year-old celebrity, Cannon added:

It was like a fairytale with Mariah, and I’d rather it stay that way. I’m a true believer in love, and I let the love capsules fall where they may. I’m not a timeline dude.

It was also disclosed by Nick Cannon that he had attempted to reconcile with Mariah Carey, but by that time, their relationship was over.

“Because if I attempted to go back and it wasn’t the same, I’d be like, “Damn, I messed it up,” that fantasy is very comforting to me. But I would be there if given the chance and everything could go back to the way it was.”

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey shocked the world with their marriage

In 2005, during the Teen Choice Awards, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey first met. Mariah recalled that during the time, she had overheard Nick making complimentary remarks about her, which she recorded in her autobiography The Meaning of Mariah Carey.

Having known each other for three years before 2008, the couple finally began dating that year. According to Brides, Carey wrote in her book that she and Nick felt completely secure in their relationship and that they had found the ideal balance between their personal and professional lives.

He knew the insanity because he had worked in the entertainment sector for quite some time. He listened to what I had to say.
Nick Cannon proposed to the woman of his dreams after only three weeks of dating and the two tied the knot that same year. Carey admitted that they had been keeping their romance a secret.

A quote from Nick Cannon from the period, as reported by Variety:

We were able to work everything out through discussion. Let’s play “what if” games. As early as the third week of our relationship, we joked about how much fun it would be to just get married. The main idea behind it was more along the lines of “let’s have as much fun as possible, and when it no longer seems like fun, when it feels like a task and a job, then we should be able to go on amicably.”

After only three months of courtship and six weeks of engagement, the couple finally married the marriage on April 30, 2008, at Carey’s house in the Bahamas. Their twins, Moroccan and Monroe Cannon, were born to Nick and Mariah in 2011.

Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey's Divorce

The couple, however, began experiencing relationship difficulties in 2014, leading to their eventual split. In 2016, they completed their separation.

In her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, Carey explained that the couple’s inability to separate their personal and professional lives was a big factor in their eventual decision to divorce.

She claimed that the two of them might have resolved their differences amicably if they hadn’t let their “egos and emotions get inflamed.”

“Making the necessary grownup adjustments to becoming working parents in the entertainment industry took its toll on our relationship, and our marriage ended just as quickly as it had begun.”

Their high-profile careers and the public’s attention on them both had a role in the breakdown of their marriage.

But they are still co-parenting their children. Nick Cannon, Carey’s current boyfriend of three years, has been in the spotlight recently when he declared he “really respects” Bryan Tanaka in a podcast appearance on The Hottie Talk Show.

I have a lot of respect for him since he is great with my kids and we do a lot of fun things as a family.
Nick Cannon countered that he would always love Carey since he had found his “dream love” with her.
