During a recent episode of his radio show, "The Daily Cannon," Nick Cannon was confronted by his co-host Courtney Bee Bledsoe about his previous marriage to Mariah Carey. Bledsoe remarked on the rapper's failed marriage stating, "I mean, you fumbled Mariah." 

This statement prompted the San Diego, California native to ask for an explanation saying, "Did I? Explain to me how I fumbled Mariah."

Although Bledsoe stated that she was only joking, she pointed out that Cannon and Carey were no longer together, insinuating that their separation was due to Cannon's actions. In response, the "Masked Singer" host defended himself and retorted, "Maybe she fumbled me," to which Bledsoe commented, "You didn't write Always Be My Baby, so it's a little different," referencing Carey's hit song from 1996.

Last month Cannon expressed his admiration for Carey in an interview with The Shade Room. The TV host praised Carey, calling her "the coolest person [he's] ever met." He also opened up about the backlash he receives from Carey's fans whenever he comments on their past relationship, saying, "I mean, I always talk about that; then, it goes viral, and all her fans get mad at me."

Cannon shared that his infatuation with Carey began when he was just a teen and had pictures of her on his wall. "I was 12 years old with Mariah Carey pictures on my wall, and that became my wife," the comedian shared. "And the fact that she's the coolest person I ever met. She's just always happy, always doing for others," he added.

Cannon also marveled at the "All I Want For Christmas Is You" hitmaker's exceptional qualities that make her seem almost otherworldly, stating, "No matter what's happening in life. I'm like, 'Wow, a person can operate like that and don't allow negative energy into their space.' When I learned how remarkable she was, I thought that woman is not human. She's a gift from God."

'Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon Are Great Co-parents'

In February of 2022, a source told US Weekly that Carey had no ill feelings towards her ex-husband and was "happy" for his expanding family, despite any past drama.

At the time, the source revealed that "Mariah and Nick are great co-parents and have a good relationship [and] friendship now. They're in a good place and supportive of each other no matter what."

According to the insider, Carey's primary concern was their twins' well-being; as long as they remained an essential part of Nick's life, she was content. 

"As long as Roc and Roe are still very much a part of Nick's life, which they are, and he gives them equal attention, that's what she solely cares about. They spend a lot of time with Nick, and he seems to balance time well with all the children," the insider shared.
