Throughout the decades, Nick Cannon has been romantically linked with dozen of beautiful, talented women, including Christina Milian, Selita Ebanks, Jessica White and ex-wife Mariah Carey, with whom he shares 12-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe. But during a segment called “Smash or Pass” on gossip blogger Jason Lee’s self-titled REVOLT TV show, Cannon shared that the only woman he’s ever chased is former Pussycat Dolls frontman and The Masked Singer co-star Nicole Scherzinger.

“I was so in love with Nicole. That’s probably the only woman I’ve ever chased. I chased her,” he told Lee. “I gave her Bible verses. I gave her a custom Bible because she’s very spiritual and super into Christianity.”

The Wild ‘n Out host added, “She was like, ‘I’m not messing with you. You toxic.’ I chased her for years. The Bible is what got me in.”

He went on to say what attracted him to the multihyphenate. “First of all, super talented. The world hasn’t seen how talented. Vocally, she’s incredible, but her acting, her humor, her impressions, and then she’s just a good person,” he gushed. “Like, one of them people that don’t say bad about nobody. You see her — she cries every episode of Masked Singer.”

Cannon has 12 children. In addition to sharing twins Moroccan and Monroe (they were born in 2011) with Carey, he became a father to another set of twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, one decade later, and a daughter named Beautiful Zeppelin in late 2022 with former radio personality Abby De La Rosa. Between 2017 and 2022, he and model Brittany Bells welcomed two sons Golden Sagon and Rise Messiah Cannon, and a daughter, Powerful Queen. In late 2021, his son Zen, who he welcomed with Alyssa Scott, died at just five months old due to brain cancer, but the couple welcomed their daughter Halo Marie Cannon a year later. Cannon welcomed his son Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi and his daughter Onyx Ice Cole with LaNisha Cole in 2022.
