It's been nearly 10 years since Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon announced they were divorcing, but it seems the latter is not ruling out a potential reconciliation. 

During a recent interview with E! News, Nick was asked if there was any chance he would get back together with Mariah.

Nick has previously stated that he "wouldn't be alive" if it weren't for the singer. He also wrote a song about her in 2022. The track sampled Mariah's 1990 classic, 'Love Takes Time'.

He clearly has a soft spot for his ex-wife. Now that Mariah has broken up with her long-term boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, would Nick consider a reunion? 

"I mean, you gotta ask her! Let me know what she says," he told E! News. The news outlet informed him that it would be interviewing Mariah soon, and would do just that. 

"Ask her, text me, we can talk through you. It's Valentines is in the air, you can be the chocolate Cupid. Let's do it, I'm with it."

However, when members of the paparazzi caught up with Mariah she made it clear she was not interested in a reunion with her ex-husband.

"Remarrying? He's making this up. This is him being silly. What is he? My last hope?"

Mariah and Nick tied the knot in 2008 and went on to have two children together - Moroccan and Monroe. 

They separated in 2014 and finalised their divorce in 2016. Since then, Nick has had 10 children from five different women. 

The father of 12 welcomed four of the children in the space of six months

Sorry, Nick, it looks like that reconciliation door closed a long time ago.
