Nick Cannon Says ‘The Wound Is Too Fresh’ With Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon, who is finalizing his divorce from wife of six years, Mariah Carey, says he has no intentions to move forward into a new relationship in the near future. In the meantime, the actor and media mogul is focusing on building his career and network.

“I think the wound’s too fresh to even be thinking about that right now,” Cannon told Dish Nation's Rickey Smiley.

Nick, who continuously defends his love for Carey despite their split, said he remains thankful, and surrounds himself with longtime friends who help him remain true to himself. He’s taking it one day at a time.

"The Real Husbands of Hollywood" star occupies his time with a third season of the show in the works as well as Season 10 auditions coming up for 'America’s Got Talent.'

“You’re gonna see, the storylines are ridiculous. This season I’m running for the Mayor of Beverly Hills, so you’re gonna see a little bit of that. You gonna see Kevin try to kill me this season, so it’s gonna get crazy,” he says.

There is also high anticipation for Cannon's upcoming project, Drumline 2 — 12 years have already flew by since part one, one of his most famous projects.

“One thing when I started producing this project, and I wanted to bring it to television, I didn’t want to focus on my old storyline…I can’t come back and just still be drumming, so I wanted to focus on a new storyline and I focused on a female storyline, and wanted it to be about woman empowerment in the sense where it’s about a young lady trying to join the line,” Cannon said.

“I come back just for a quick cameo… My character Devon [Miles] kinda turns into a super music producer type of guy that comes back and pays respect for a couple of scenes.”
