People: There’s hope Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon will reunite permanently

That ^^ is Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon hanging out with Floyd Mayweather and EACH OTHER at the MC Records Launch party last week. This capped off the second weekend in a row that the once-fairytale-lovebirds have spend together in ‘datelike’ situations. Since there is absolutely nothing else going on in the world to take my attention, I have plenty of time to ask: What does it mean? Now that both are free from their other romantic entanglements, can we count n a Mariah and Nick redux? Or is there something else going on like, I don’t know, they are secret super heroes working together to save the world from good fashion sense? According to People, there’s hope they’re reconciling but in truth we just don’t know:

After nearly two years of being separated, “there seems to be hope that they will get back together permanently,” a source tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Mariah and Nick are getting along great,” the source says. “Nick spends most of his time with Mariah and the kids. Mariah is great with Nick around. There seems to be hope that they will get back together permanently.”

However, an additional Carey insider tells PEOPLE that they are nothing more than pals. “Honestly, they are co-parenting,” says the insider.
Carey and Cannon both rebuffed the rumors in an interview with ET on Tuesday.

“We’re together when it counts,” insists Carey, 47, “We’re together for the kids. And I think that’s the most important thing.”

“It’s so perfect right now honestly, I’m working on being the best me that I can possibly be and from that I’m working on being the best father that I can be and that’s a plate full right there,” Cannon, 36, echoed. “I love her, I adore her, that’s always going to be my dream girl but I think as mature adults I think we just operate better with the way things are right now.”

To all appearances, the group is one big happy family. “Mariah loves having Nick around,” the initial Carey source confirms. “She’s in the best mood.”

I am inclined to accept all speculation on this as one part of the whole truth. I think they will be together permanently, but not likely as romantic partners (although I don’t doubt they will scratch an itch from time to time). Other than some shading while they were trying to find their footing in the divorce, there never really was any animosity between these two. So, I’m sticking by my original assessment that their relationship works for them, she likes adoration and he adores her. They seem really committed to the twins so bravo to both for getting the co-parenting thing down. I hope Nick’s son Golden is getting the same attention. As for the swirl of Marick activity the last few weeks, the twin’s sixth birthday was April 30. Not surprisingly, the couple lavished attention – and some serious change – on Monroe and Morocco. Plus, Nick lost a friend in that horrible shooting in San Diego so I imagine he’s needed a shoulder and Mariah’s providing it – again, good for them for being there for the twins and each other in a positive way.

Even though Nick has stepped away from his America’s Got Talent duties, he is still a busy guy. Last summer we learned Nick was enrolling in Howard University to finally get the degree he postponed pursuing his career. I‘ve been wondering what was going on with that. Apparently, it’s still happening. Although I don’t have an update on his GPA (or attendance record,) he was on hand to support Michelle Obama at MTV’s College Signing Day event that asked students to continue their higher education through colleges, vocational or technical schools or the military. I don’t know a lot about Nick but he does hang out with the coolest people.

They Better Make Room!! #Ncredible

    Whyyyy does she dress that wayy! For a millionaire many times over, she always looks like a cheap hooker. Does she REALLY think it’s sexy???? I just don’t get it

    • Seraphina says:

      I agree. But that Mariah and how she dresses. Agree with Artemis below on the comment that M lives in her own world. I remember seeing her on an MTV show and she was dressed like that and as she was showing off her home gym, got in an elliptical with stilettos on and I was like WTF. She LOVES attention and she dresses that way to etvit. Regarlesless if positive or not. The sad part is we will see her dressing like this when she is 80. Ugh

      • Craven says:

        I saw that episode. That was a WTF moment if there ever was one. To her credit, she does know its hilarious. She just happens to really like that bombshell gimmick from old Hollywood. You know like arriving to a radio interview with your own lighting crew as she did at Hot Breakfast. Or narrating your reality show in a leotard, stockings and diamonds while draped on a chaise lounge. The old girls she is emulating, from Mae West to Jean Harlow were tongue-in-cheek outrageous too, so theres that.

  2. Artemis says:

    Hmm, I can’t remember the details that well but wasn’t he trying to get some money off her post-separation? He did talk shit about her in a song. Like, he always used his wife and then ex to get some attention and to then to do it when they split was just a continuation of him being a douche.

    At this point, I doubt Mariah cares about a real partnership, she lives in her own world and if she wants some attention, Nick will always be there. She knows him so she can trust him, to a certain extent. It’s not like she has normal relationships anyway as her last 2 men are proof of that. Better that than some shoddy and shady marriages celebrities promote. I think Mariah and Nick are probably closer to a normal ‘couple’ than some other Hollywood ‘couples’.

    I do feel bad for his new baby though. I don’t hear any news about the mother or child and I hope he’s an involved father.

    • roses says:

      Yes he did everything you just listed that’s why he gets the side-eye from me.

  3. People, there’s hope People will stop reporting on Mariah Caret and Nick Cannon permanently.

  4. Rice says:

    I really really missed seeing M’Obama!!!

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I know, I saw Michelle and was immediately going, “HEY! HEY, YOU BURIED THE LEDE. YOU HAD PHOTOS OF MICHELLE OBAMA HERE!”

  5. Chaine says:

    Why does he always wear headgear now? Is he hiding something about his hair?

    • GingerCrunch says:

      I’m wondering if he’s getting chemo for his Lupus. He acts like he might be Sikh now, but idk.

      • AmunetMa'at says:

        You do know one doesn’t have to be Sikh to wear a turban. It’s a part of ancient African cultural practices before it had a religious affiliation. Plus, he has lupus it’s possible he likes to wear head gear during a servere outbreak.

  6. I Don't Know Her says:

    I don’t know or her.

  7. HadToChangeMyName says:

    Something positive: I always like Mariah’s styling (hair and makeup, not clothes) when she’s with Nick. He seems to like her more natural (curly hair, neutral colored makeup) and she does it.

  8. Alp says:

    Why did they break up? Did he cheat on her on something?

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I always assumed Mariah was a towering diva and eventually things went crater-shaped because of it. I can’t imagine her not being at least occasionally hard to live with.

  9. TQB says:

    Co-parenting is f’ing hard. Whatever their status is, they seem to be great at putting the kids first. Considering her reputation for self-absorption, it’s pretty impressive. Kudos to them.

  10. DD says:

    Everyone thinks that every celebrity couple is getting back together. I don’t know if it’s just wishful thinking or what but …seriously? Nick Cannon is thanking the old gods and the new that he got away from crazy Mariah (the massive check that she wrote him is a bonus I’m sure). He has one baby that we know of with another woman. Let it go.

    • WTW says:

      @DD, Yes, I think it has to be wishful thinking. Many people would have a hard time if they separated, and their spouse just slept with another person. He had a baby with another woman. I’m not even an eighth of the diva that Mariah is, and if I would have trouble stomaching that, I think she definitely would. I think the baby means they’re never, ever, getting backing together.

    Very nice pics. Their little twins are as cute as buttons.
