The 35-year-old “America’s Got Talent” host and the 45-year-old singer were also recently spotted being flirty and cuddling with one another while celebrating the season 11 finale of the competition show.
Now, Nick is gushing over his rumored girlfriend in a new interview with Rap-Up, in which he tells the site the chemistry between them is undeniable.
“Everybody’s going crazy because they’ve seen all this stuff with Chilli and I,” says Nick. “And the chemistry is undeniable.”
Mariah Carey’s ex goes on to explain why he’s not ready to commit to one woman just yet.
“I take everything one day at a time,” he explains. “I truly believe I’m definitely not ready to be in a relationship. I can’t get it right. I haven’t gotten it right yet, but I adore her and I truly have a passion for connecting with people that understand romance and understand connecting with one another. So you never know, but I’m so engulfed with today that I’m happy where it’s at.”
As for how he got Chilli to star in his sultry video, he reveals:
“I put that line in there just freestyling [referencing the ‘Hat to the back, swagged out, lookin’ like Chilli’ lyric], not knowing what would come about,” he says. “A couple of weeks later, I was like, ‘Yo, how crazy would it be if Chilli was my love interest in the video?’ I put the call in, she said yes, and the rest is history.”
