Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey

It’s been three years since Wild ‘N Out host, Nick Cannon, separated from Grammy award-winning singer, Mariah Carey. But the pain appears to be still present for the actor and comedian.

During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 36-year-old opened up about his love life and how his failed marriage has impacted his outlook on love.

“I’m broken. I’m shattered,” he said

Cannon married Carey in 2008. The couple, who are the parents to twins, Moroccan and Monroe, called it quits in 2014.

In February, Cannon became a father for the second time when he welcomed his third child with former Miss Arizona U.S.A., Brittany Bell.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Cannon said he does not consider Bell his “ex,” and that Carey was his last ex.

“Everybody else is people that I’ve known, loved and cared for.”

While Cannon has admitted to being emotionally unavailable, he is still dating.

“Why not? I’m a single man. I’m supposed to date,” he said.

While heartbreak has no time limit, we do wish Mr. Cannon a fulfilling journey back to finding …and keeping true love.
