American TV host and comedian, Nick Cannon, has said his ex-wife, Mariah Carey is his “fantasy love”, and he hopes they get to rekindle their romance someday.

The TV host said this during an appearance on “The Hottie Talk Show“, when he was asked if he would rekindle a romance with the “My All” songstress.

Of course,” Nick answered without hesitation when he was asked about Mariah. He then elaborated, “It was literally like a fairytale with Mariah, so I would rather it just be that way and I appreciate that fantasy because if I try to go back and it wasn’t the same, I’d be like, ‘Damn, I messed it up.’ ” He added, “But if I had the opportunity if it could be the way it was, I’m there.”

Calling the 53-year-old singer his “fantasy love,” the rapper admitted that he would never have a love as he did with Mariah. “I guess because I’m a true romantic, I’m a true believer in love and I allow the capsules of love to be where they lie,” he explained. “I’m not a timeline dude. I will never have a love as I did with Mariah.”

Nick noted though that he “truly respects” Mariah’s longtime boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. “The dude is amazing with my kids and we have family gatherings and things together so I truly respect it,” he said about the dancer. “But come on, that’s my fantasy love. That’s somebody that I will always love,” he reiterated about Mariah.

Nick and Mariah tied the knot in 2008 and welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe in April 2011. The couple split in 2014 and their divorce was finalized in 2016.
