"[They've] been friends for some time and just recently this summer they have been hanging out romantically." The source also revealed that "Nick has always had a crush on her growing up. Both Nick and Chilli are no strangers to engaging in high-profile relationships, with Nick splitting from Mariah Carey in 2014 and Chilli having a very public breakup with Usher in 2003, which might help their courtship move forward.
"Chilli is a very mature woman that's been around the music industry for sometime and gets it," the source added.
Nick was seen PDAing with Chilli, 45, leaving his ex Mariah Carey all but forgotten. “He watched Chilli intensely and lovingly as the group performed, then couldn’t keep his hands off her backstage,” the insider says. ” The source also reveals that Nick watched her adoringly as TLC, which headlined the show, played hits like “No Scrubs” and “Waterfalls”. We can’t forget that things got touchy for a little while when Nick blasted Mariah and the divorce in his song “Divorce Papers”.
“Damn, Em,” he says in the song, referencing rapper, Eminem, 43.
"The funny thing is that Mariah knows and likes Chili, she thinks she and Nick are good together.
Mariah respects Chili as an artist and a person and wouldn’t think twice about Nick bringing their kids around her." Just in time to make your 4th of July #Ncredible!
