Mariah Carey Says She's in No Rush to Have Kids

Mariah Carey is "more or less" in a relationship right now, she reveals in a new interview – but doesn't name her beau, saying: "I don't talk about that anymore."

The 37-year-old singer does reflect on her ill-fated marriage to Tommy Mottola, telling Hello! magazine, "If I could go back again, I wouldn't do it."

Mottola – the former Sony Music boss who discovered Carey – split with the singer in 1997, after nearly four years of marriage.

Carey has also dated baseball star Derek Jeter and rapper Eminem, who in November blasted her on his "uncensored hip-hop channel" for denying they dated.

So, will Carey get married again? "We'll see," she answers.

The Grammy-winning singer also says she's not in any rush to have children. "What I want is to have children in a good way, with the right husband, with the right family life."

Asked if that means she'd only have children if she were married, "I think so," she says. "But who knows? Five years from now I might get hysterical and say, 'I have to have kids!' But I don't think so."
