Looks like Nick Cannon has a new lady in his life!

A source tells E! News Mariah Carey's ex-husband has been spending time with TLC's Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas

"Nick and Chilli [have] been hanging out on the low," the insider said. "[They've] been friends for some time and just recently this summer they have been hanging out romantically."

The source also explained how the two work well together because they're both in the music industry. "Chilli is a very mature woman that's been around the music industry for sometime and gets it," the source added. "Nick has always had a crush on her growing up. He thinks she is beautiful."

Not to mention, the source notes that Nick "has a thing for older women."

However, despite their connection they aren't too serious just yet. "They are not an exclusive couple at this time just causally hanging out and seeing where things go."

Meanwhile, Nick filed for divorce from Mariah in early 2015 after a six-year marriage. 

Now, Mariah is engaged to business mogul James Packer, and another source told E! News Nick is "happy" for Carey and Packer, and he remains on "very good terms" with his ex.

In fact, after Packer proposed, Cannon shared a meme of himself freaking out over Carey's enormous, 35-carat engagement ring. "HILARIOUS!" he wrote in an Instagram caption. "#AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union... #GreatPeople #GreatCouple."
