by | Divorce

Nick Cannon still hasn’t healed from his relationship with Mariah Carey. It appears the singer is running from himself while believing to have found himself.

The superstar  recently appeared on the “It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper” podcast, and he revealed how his failed marriage with Mariah Carey makes him feel like he’s not built for marriage.

He referred his failed marriage to Mariah Carey when the topic  about potentially marrying one of his 5 baby mamas’ came up.

“That to me was one of the greatest experiences of my life, and for that to have come to an end, as well, is like why would I go back if I couldn’t make THAT work out right?…

I think once I gave my all to a scenario… going forward I’d have to be presented with something that I’ve never seen before or never experienced.

In order for me to be willing to go back to do something like that because, it’s almost like, yo, I did my best in this space.

And now I feel like there is a new journey in my life which is different experiences that I have to see.

But I’m not going to backtrack and put myself in that position again because it doesn’t get any better than that.

Marriage and all that goes into that is so… It’s a lot, I mean everybody who is married knows what that is.

You’re literally entering a partnership that says where two becomes one.

And I know I’m not built for that.”

After calling Carey one of his “best friends,” for whom he has “so much respect,” Cannon admitted he’s “probably still going through it” and hasn’t fully healed from their divorce.

“Divorce is a sense of, ‘You failed,’ and when you have that level of failure with everyone seeing it, it was a lot on me for a long time,” he said. “I didn’t really know how to process it. I had to go find myself. I had to go within.”

From there, Cannon reiterated, “The traditional sense of monogamy, I don’t subscribe to.”

“I let [the women I have children with] know from the gate [about my views towards marriage]. It’s not out of disrespect, it’s more respect,” he explained. “It’s, ‘I’m going to come to you as honest as I possibly can. This is who I am, this is what I struggle with, this is where I feel like I excel. If we can coexist, you’re responsible for your happiness. If I can add to it, I’m here. If I don’t add to it, I shouldn’t be here.”
