Is Nick Cannon single for life?
In a candid new interview, the 35-year-old TV star opened up about his previous marriage to Mariah Carey and addressed whether or not he'd ever walk down the aisle again.

"I feel like marriage isn’t for everyone," he revealed to DuJour. "A friend of mine put it the funniest way. He said, 'If you heard that there was a 50/50 chance of living or dying when you jump out of a plane, you probably wouldn’t go skydiving.' There’s like a 50/50 chance of a marriage working. If it didn’t work out for you the first time, and you still survived it, you probably shouldn’t do it again."
When asked if he'd consider tying the knot for a second time in the future, the father-of-two — he and Mariah, 45, are parents to four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe — he replied, "I highly doubt it."

"How do I say this the right way… Not to say that I was bogged down [in my marriage], because I wasn’t by any means, but I like being able to make my own decisions and come and go as I please," he said of being hitched to Mariah from 2008 to 2015.
But, the two have remained amicable since their big split, especially when it comes to raising their two children in the spotlight. "I don’t see a problem with [Moroccan and Monroe] being different and having an eccentric upbringing. It’s fascinating and fantastic. But it’s about [teaching them] humility more than anything. Teaching them to be respectful — to make eye contact and say 'Yes, ma'am and 'Yes, sir,'" he told the magazine. "You can still be a diva and be humble. Mariah is a perfect example of that."
