Nick Cannon says he went looking for Eminem after he fired shots at his then-wife, Mariah Carey.

"Think about it...I think we was flying on a jet from Africa or somewhere. And this motherf*cker drops a song talking sh*t. Calling [Carey] all types of b*tches and hoes," Cannon said during an appearance on T.I.'s ExpediTIously podcast. "I'm like, 'This my wife. My new wife.'"

He continued:

"I went looking for him. I called managers...I gotta show my wife I'm a man...I said, 'I know I'm not gonna be able to out rap you but I will whoop your ass.' Those were the exact words at the time. Cooler heads prevailed."

Cannon and Carey were officially married for a little over eight years after separating in 2014 and then finalizing their divorce in 2016. The couple has two children together.

Nick, now single, also explained on the podcast what he wants from his next relationship:

"I think I'll never be able to be with just one woman again. Like, that's gon' be tough for me. I did it in marriage! I was very faithful in my marriage…the whole time I was married," he said.
