The publication reports that the singer asked her pal Nas to set her up on a date.
An insider told Us Weekly that Carey “texted Nas, wondering if he had any friends she could go out with — or even just hook up with. But Nas is nervous to introduce her to anyone.”
The two have long been friends and worked together on the track “Dedicated,” which can be heard on Mariah’s latest album, “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.”
Rumors even claimed that they were more than friends, but it was Cannon himself who denied the speculation.
“[Nas is] a friend of mine, he’s a friend of hers,” he said in April. “She went to his birthday party, and I think it was in L.A. We actually talked about this before. It’d be very difficult to make me jealous.”
Rumors claimed that the American Idol host had had an affair with Amber Rose, who is currently divorcing rapper Wiz Khalifa. Cannon has vehemently denied these allegations.
