During Wednesday’s episode of The Casey Crew, hosts DJ Envy and his wife Gia Casey invited their first guest ever, Nick Cannon, to join their podcast discussion about relationships, divorce, business moves and everything in-between. The Saddle River resident spoke candidly about the first woman in Hollywood he fell in love with and break his heart.
The 36-year-old San Diego native recently stopped by Power 105.1 in New York City to confirm the rumors about expecting a child with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell. Now, the America’s Got Talent host, who already has two children (5-year-old twins Monroe and Morrocan) by ex-wife Mariah Carey, is spilling the juicy details about his childhood love life.
“The first person I honestly fell in love with, I was probably 16 or 17, was Meagan Good,” Nick revealed. “She opened my eyes to a lot of things. We were young. A part of it was I was enamored by her Hollywood aspect. For our first real real date, I was her date to the NAACP Awards when she was nominated for Eve’s Bayou. S*** blew my mind and the fact that her family embraced me…her mom was like my mom.”
Unfortunately, the story of these two love birds didn’t come with a fairytale ending. It turns out, the Wild ‘N Out star wasn’t the only man on her radar at the time.
“She liked attention,” Nick added. “She had this other little actor dude that was her boyfriend and it broke my heart, but I was like alright I’ll just be your best friend. And we literally just became best friends for years, because we were in love with each other. We even said we were going to get married.”
As Nick soon began to rise to fame, his attitude toward their newly platonic relationship began to change. He became spiteful and did things he knew would ultimately upset Meagan, like sleeping with some of her close friends. Deep down, he still wanted them to be a couple.
Today, Meagan is happily married to preacher and Motivational speaker DeVon Franklin. Nick revealed the two of them are still very close and he couldn’t be happier for Meagan.
Nick has also been romantically linked to Jersey City native and singer Christina Milian, Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks and reality star Kim Kardashian. To find out what other secrets Nick revealed during the podcast, listen to the full interview below:
