Nick Cannon’s failed marriage to Mariah Carey appeared to come out of nowhere to many, but Nick claims the truth is he’s just not relationship material for anyone.
Nick was rumored to be dating TLC singer Chilli, but he denied the rumors during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club crew and now he claims he just can’t make a relationship work with anyone.
In a conversation with HuffPost’s Lauren Moraski about the eighth season of MTV’s “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out,” Cannon opened up about his new song “If I Was Your Man” featuring Jeremih. The 35-year-old said recording the song was “therapeutic,” an opportunity for him to be honest about relationships.
“It’s saying like, ‘Yo, I’m not really ready to be in a relationship, but if I was, I definitely don’t plan on lying to you and all I want to do is treat you right,’” Cannon said. “’But I’m probably not a good guy to be in a relationship with.’ And that’s just as honest as I can be.”
Cannon, who split from Mariah Carey after six years of marriage in 2014, lamented that he doesn’t see himself in another long-term relationship.
“I always say I’m damaged goods,” he said, going on to explain that his priorities are his career and fatherhood.
“You can’t be good at everything, so I feel like I suffer in the relationship department,” Cannon said. “I don’t like doing anything I’m not good at and I’m definitely not good at being in relationships.”
