Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may 'get back together permanently'

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may be trying to make their relationship work again.

Sources close to the famously friendly exes revealed to People that "there seems to be hope that they will get back together permanently" as they've grown close again since Carey's split from Bryan Tanaka last month.

The couple, who got divorced back in 2015 after six years of marriage, have always spent a lot of time together, especially when with their children. They share twins Moroccan and Monroe, 6, and frequently post photos on social media and attend events together as a foursome. A couple week after stepping out as a family to the 2017 Kids' Choice Awards, Carey and Cannon brought their twins to Disneyland for their birthday.

"Mariah and Nick are getting along great," the source explained. "Nick spends most of his time with Mariah and the kids. Mariah is great with Nick around. There seems to be hope that they will get back together permanently."

Though another insider contends that they're merely "co-parenting," the other source's claims make sense given that Carey recently broke up with her background dancer boyfriend, who she was dating for about a year after ending her engagement to Canadian billionaire James Packer.

"We're together when it counts," Carey told ET at her Butterfly MC Records launch event on Tuesday when asked about their relationship. "We're together for the kids, and I think that's the most important thing."

Back in February, Cannon welcomed another child, two-month old son Golden, with former Miss Arizona, Brittany Bell.
