Nick Cannon has recently revealed in an interview that he was a “hopeless romantic” and that ex-hubby Mariah Carey will always be the love of his life. The "America's Got Talent" judge also slammed the media for the false allegations that came forth in light of their divorce.

Cannon previously reunited with the “Bye Bye” singer for an Easter egg hunt with their twins Moroccan & Monroe and posted in Instagram a re-posted photo from Carey, showing the kids having a blast looking for eggs at a zoo, Music Times reported. A few weeks later, Cannon appeared on “The Meredith Vieira Show” and admitted that he still had a lot of love and admiration for his A-list ex-wife.

"It's one of those things, I'm a hopeless romantic too so I honestly believe, through this learning process you never say never. To me one thing I know that, that will always be the love of my life, always be my family, that's never going to change," Cannon said.

According to E! News, many tabloids have exaggerated their claims on whether or not there would be a possible reconciliation between Carey and Cannon, but the “Wild ‘N Out” star was quick to tell fans that the media coverage surrounding their highly-publicized divorce was has not always been accurate. He also expressed his displeasure on Vieira’s show. "It's extremely disappointing when you see that people just want to perpetuate negativity when there is no negativity even involved," he said. He added that he had always been open and honest, but because of the false allegations coming out from the media, he might opt not to say anything about his divorce at all.

The rumors and speculations sparked his new appreciation for Carey, whom he thought of as a professional when it comes to keeping their personal lives private. Cannon says that his ex-wife does a good job of not revealing too much information about their home life to the media and that he was learning how to do the same.

The rapper says he will now try to stay low and will focus instead on his career and his kids, who will be turning four by the end of the month. He recently said that family is always his number one priority and that he will always make sure to make a connection with his kids first.
