TV host Nick Cannon says he is not ready to date yet following his split from estranged wife Mariah Carey.

The 35-year-old America’s Got Talent host has admitted he isn’t ready to move on, reported Female First.

"I haven’t figured it out yet. I just don’t think I’m ready to date yet. It’s funny because my next film that I’m writing is all about online dating so I’m learning all about it.

"It’s so intriguing to me but I have yet jump into that pool. But it’s the new wave so I’m not against it," he said.

The rapper and television personality is learning to "value private time" since his marriage ended.

"I don’t know if I would say it was hard. It’s more of just adjusting and adapting, as we all do as we get older.

You’re living life. I have really learned to value private time, I’ve been deep in meditation and getting to know myself."
