EXCLUSIVE: Nick Cannon Still Puts Ex-Wife Mariah Carey In His Top Five Cougars In The Game (And A Few Other Surprises)
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have finalized their divorce, but Mariah is still H.O.T. in her ex-husband’s eyes. Get the deets on Nick naming Mariah in his Top Five Cougars in the Game list and more inside…
Former couple Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have reached a settlement in their divorce, but it’s still all love between the two.
We all know Nick has a thing for cougars. And he's quite unapologetic about it, by the way. The “America’s Got Talent” host (above at the "TODAY" show yesterday) sat down with TheYBF.com recently to spill some tea on who's in his Top Five. And guess who made the list? His ex-wife Mariah Carey!
“Is Mariah part of this conversation?,” he asked YBF founder Natasha Eubanks during TheYBF’s podcast. “Absolutely, Mariah.”
He explained, “She’s more than my ex, that’s the mother of my children.”
Nick also named Halle Berry (who’s still legally married), Toni Braxton, Salma Hayek (who’s married), and Janet Jackson (who’s also married). After learning that a cougar is a woman of her certain age who is still single (not married) and ready to mingle with a muchyounger man exactly a cougar is, he then added Nicole Murphy to his list. And he alluded to getting to know her on another level. Hmph. Yeah, those dating rumors were seemingly true.
When Nick was asked about not naming Jennifer Lopez, he lit up like a Christmas tree. Apparently he wants to date her now that she’s single these days after calling it quits with Casper Smart over the summer. Badly.
“Casper [Smart] is my man, but I don’t care,” he said. “JLo is cold!” He continued, “She [JLo] invited me to her Halloween party last year and I thought I was in…and Casper was there. I was like ‘Damn it!’” He added, “JLo invited me to the crib? I went and got two outfits!’”
Nick then opened up about how he tried to bag her back in the day, but JLo was reluctant.
“We did a movie together and this is when she was with Ben Affleck. I was shooting my shot, I didn’t care. She said ‘I heard about you. Mmhmm…’”
Hmm...maybe Nick should try shooting his shot now that she's single.
