Mariah Carey can count the amount of men she’s been with on one hand.
In PEOPLE’s exclusive first look at the August issue ofCosmopolitan, the pop icon revealed that while she has had some highly publicized romances throughout her career, she’s never been one to play the field.
“I haven’t had that many, but there has been a variety pack,” Carey, 49, toldCosmopolitan.
“I’ve only been with five people in my life, so I’m kind of a prude, honestly, compared to most others in the field,”she added.
The five-time Grammy-winning singer wed her first husband, Sony exec Tommy Mottola, in 1993, when she was a newcomer in the industry. Over a decade later, she tied the knot for a second time with Nick Cannon, 38, with whom she shares 8-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Carey is currently in a relationship backup dancer and choreographer Bryan Tananka, 36, whom she first began dating shortly after her split from Australian billionaire James Packer.
