Nick Cannon is looking for some tender love and care from Chilli! Nick couldn’t stop gushing about the TLC singer amid their dating rumors and even said she was ‘amazing’ in a recent interview on July 14. But are the two actually dating? We’ve got the 4-1-1!
One thing is for sure, Nick Cannon, 35, definitely thinks highly of Chilli, 45! “She’s amazing. She’s an outstanding person,” he told E! News. Still, he put the pressure on the hip hop singer to determine their status. “But you have to ask her what’s going on,” he added. Watch The Full Interview Here!
Nice try, Nick, but you’re not going to get away from this that easy! He indicated his reserved attitude was because he needed a little time to figure other things out. “I’m new to this,” he explained. “How does this whole thing work? Right now, I’m damaged goods. I need to be repaired.” The Nickelodeon mogul, who filed for divorce from his wife of six years, Mariah Carey, in Dec. 2014, is still coping with the heart break. Although he’s tried to keep a strong front, it’s clear by the countless references in his music that he’s holding a bit of a grudge. Maybe Chilli is just the woman he needs to repair his broken heart!
Chilli and Nick were originally spotted at the VH1’s 2016 Hip Hop Honors allegedly engaging an an intimate make out session. They might’ve hopped the gun once, but Nick still isn’t ready to use the “r-word” just yet. So instead of jumping to a relationship, he’s starting slow as “just friends.” “That is definitely my friend, some one I care dearly for,” Nick said. “I’m so lucky to be able to be called dating someone like that.”
So there you have it! Nick and Chilli aren’t a couple — yet! Judging by the way he talks about the star, we can totally see a romance happening soon! Let’s just hope he takes all the time he needs to heal before hopping right back into another relationship!
