Nick Cannon has sworn off marriage after his union with ex-wife Mariah Carey ended in heartbreak.

"I don't believe in marriage anymore," he told Entertainment Tonight. "My mindset has changed. I have done that. I don't like doing things that I am not good at."

Cannon continued, "If you jumped out of a plane on time and it did not work out -- you would not do it again, would you?" he said On Nick Cannon Mornings, adding: "I barely survived. Why would I jump out of the plane again?"

Cannon and Mariah were wed back in 2008, but Cannon filed for divorce in 2014. The former couple share 8-year-old twins, and their divorce was finalized in 2016.

"I'm trying to fix myself. I'm trying to be the best me I can be, the best dad I can be, the best entrepreneur and young media mogul that I can be," he said. "So I'm really just focused on me and being the best because for some reason I haven't gotten this relationship thing right. I'm not good at it. I don't like doing stuff that I'm not good at."
