Nick Cannonhas responded to the rumors that he and TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas are dating, but that doesn’t mean he’s tipping his hand just yet.
He spoke to People on Thursday to say, “I have not heard those rumors,” but added to say that the 45-year-old TLC singer is “hot” and “amazing.”
He continued, “I would be so lucky to be able to be called ‘dating’ her. This is all new to me. I’m not ready for titles and all that stuff.” Saying with a laugh, “I’m damaged goods! Who would want to date me? Clearly I don’t get it.”
Earlier this week a source told E!, “[They’ve] been friends for some time and just recently this summer they have been hanging out romantically.”
Regardless of whether or not the two are a couple, Cannon did tell People a few rules from his own book of successful dating. “You’ve got to take everything slow. That’s what it’s all about,” he said. Adding, “More than anything, she’s somebody I care for and enjoy spending time with.”
While Cannon is playing it cool, it sounds like something is most definitely going on between the two celebs.
Perhaps Cannon really is ready to move on from his ex-wife and jump back into the dating pool.
