  • Nick Cannon said he would consider getting married again to the right woman.

  • He reflected on past failed relationships on the "All The Way with Shelley Wade" podcast.

  • Cannon said that he needed someone to "hold me down through all my madness."

Nick Cannon reflected on his failed relationships during an interview on the podcast "All The Way with Shelley Wade."

Cannon was previously married to Mariah Carey from 2008 to 2016 and has since had children with multiple women he has been in relationships with, but he has been adamant about not getting married again.

However, during the recent interview with Wade, Cannon said there is a possibility of him walking down the aisle again.

"I'm a hopeless romantic at the end of the day, so I love the concept, I love the ceremony of it," Cannon said. "I've failed miserably so many times at monogamy and relationships, but God ain't done with me. We're going to figure it out."

Cannon added that the "deciding factor" for him is to find the right person who can "hold me down."

"I think as I'm growing, I probably had a few midlife crises in my life," the "Wild 'N Out" host explained. "I'm liking the man that I'm growing into and I feel like someone who will understand me and can stand by me."

He continued: "Acts of service is a big [love language] for me... It's more about servitude and that sense of, like, someone who you can serve each other and where you're weak, they're strong. And if I can ever find somebody that knows how to hold me down through all my madness, through all my chaos and toxicity, that's probably somebody I can rock with for life."

In 2019, Cannon told rapper T.I. on the "ExpediTIously" podcast that he would never get married again after divorcing Carey.

"Once I stepped away from that, I [realized] that construct is not designed for me," he said at the time. "I gave it my all because even before that, I was like, 'I don't believe in marriage.' But, shit, it was Mariah Carey. Whatever she say, I'm with it. If she wanted to say we was going to the moon, I'm like, 'Let's go.'"

In the last year, Cannon has been open about dating multiple women after he had four children born within a year.

Cannon has twins with Carey, two children with Brittany Bell, and twins with Abby De La Rosa. His son with Alyssa Scott, who was born last year, died of a brain tumor in December. Cannon is expecting a child this year with Bre Tiesi.

After the birth of his seventh child last year, Cannon said on "The Breakfast Club" radio show that he doesn't "subscribe to monogamy."

Earlier this year, the "Masked Singer" host went one step further and said on "The Language of Love" podcast that monogamy isn't "healthy" because it "gets into the space of selfishness and ownership."
