Mariah Carey had called it quits with Bryan Tanaka after more than five months together, previous reports said. Multiple sources claimed the busty diva dumped her toyboy due to his "insane jealousy" of her ex-husband Nick Cannon, with whom she allegedly has spend a lot of time together.
Weighing in on the swirling rumors that he caused Mariah's split from the backup dancer, Nick tells Entertainment Tonight, "I know nothing about this." He continues, "I got too many of my own relationship issues to be worried about an old relationship."
Nick says of the notion that Bryan's jealous of him, "Most men are jealous of me. I'm joking. But I know nothing about it. For me, at the end of the day, she's an amazing mother and we focus on our kids. That's never going to change no matter who's in my life or who's in her life. We have kids together, so we'll always be family."
Insisting that he doesn't get involved in his ex-wife's personal life, the "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" host says, "I don't know because I'm not in it." He continues. "I'm purposefully like, 'Let's go do something with the kids. I don't care what you do in your personal life.' I don't know. I thought it was bizarre as somebody watching from afar. I thought the show was very produced."
"I didn't say that their relationship was just for show," the rapper/comedian says. "I thought the show fabricated a lot of stuff because, as a producer, I was like, 'Oh, they positioned that. They put the cameras there.' I was watching it from that perspective. But I don't know what the relationship actually is. But if it is, salud to them!"
Nick goes on to say that he doesn't rule out the possibility of him getting back together with with his ex-wife, with whom he shares 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. "That is always family -- and when I say that, I say that to a level of I will always love her," he says candidly.
"That's always my dream girl. Like, to me, just because we're not intimate, I'm closer with her than probably I've ever been just based off of that's my family, that's the mother of my children," the "Oh Well" hitmaker continues.
"We talk every single day," he adds. "We spend more time with the kids' school, karate class, gymnastics class, like, it's a full-time job. I wouldn't want to mess up what we have right now trying to do something else."
