In an interview with E! On thursday, Cannon directed to his readiness to consider reuniting with Carey, who became single again just recently, after her breakup with her long-term lover, Bryan Tanaka.

I mean, you gotta ask her!" Cannon told the outlet. "Let me know what she say!" He added, "Ask her, text me, we can talk through you. It's Valentines is in the air, you can be the chocolate cupid. Let's do it, I'm with it."

Mariah Carey has just responded to Nick Cannon's comments about the possibility they would reunite again. In response to the question about the likelihood of them being back together, Mariah teased

"What is he? My last hope?"

 This response prompted laughter from the paparazzo and other photographers present at the scene 

It is important to note that Mariah Carey did not take Nick Cannon's remarks seriously and dismissed the idea of a reunion. She stated that he was making it up and being silly 

Cannon's ex-wife has been a topic of conversation for him lately, as he has openly discussed her on multiple occasions. One such instance was during an episode of the Daily Cannon Show in April, where Cannon was accused by his co-host Courtney Bee Bledsoe of mishandling his relationship with Carey.

"Did I? Explain to me how I fumbled Mariah,” he replied. Bledsoe said she was just “playing” with him, and added, “I don’t know…I just know you’re not with her, so that’s a fumble.” Cannon replied, “Maybe she fumbled me."
