But it sounds like he's exploring other fish in the sea — namely a fish called Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas!
Rumors started swirling this week that the America's Got Talent host has been courting the TLC singer after being spotted at WDKX's Summerfest Concert — and Nick's certainly not shutting down (or confirming, really) the speculation!
While attending the El Lay premiere of the documentary Gleason on Thursday night, the 35-year-old entertained questions on the red carpet surrounding his love life and rumored relationship with the R&B singer.
"She's an outstanding and amazing woman. I've known her for so, so many years and, you know, we've been friends … We got the opportunity to spend, uh, time together but I wouldn't-… I would say ask her. Ask her what the situation is."
We think he's just as confused as we are!
Which makes sense, considering dating is still relatively new to him (unlike his ex, who is already prepping to walk down the aisle again):
"I'm fresh in this game when it comes to being single. I like to say I'm damaged goods… What woman would want me? I would be so lucky to, uh, be able to claim to be dating somebody like Chilli."
To a similar effect, the actor told People:
Talk about spot on!
AH-Mazingly enough, Zachary was somehow able to top his Star Trek Beyond costar's performance by going FULL ON George Michael and performing Freedom — he even got Cindy Crawford, who starred in the music video, to get naked and help out!

This poor woman.
Anna Duggar may claim that she's thankful to God for keeping her and Josh Duggar together throughout his multiple scandals, but in reality, it seems as though she's effectively trapped in her marriage because of her religion.
During Tuesday's premiere of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, we got an update on Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald's lives, but most of the hour was dedicated to Anna's meet-up with Josh.
The mother-of-four visited Josh off camera at his Christian recovery center, presumably because TLC knows they can't let him back on TV.
Anna was understandably nervous about facing Josh after the "painful memories" he'd created. She said on his scandal:
After going through two major public scandals last year, Josh Duggar's controversies resulted in his TLC cancelling the reality show featuring his ever-growing family 19 Kids and Counting.
Now that the dust has settled, the cable network is reintroducing The Duggars back onto our TV screens — but are making sure to leave out one disgraced family member.
It's been confirmed by People that Josh will NOT appear on his family's new series Jill and Jessa: Counting On — which got a full season order after the original three-part special aired in December.
On Thursday, it was announced that the 28-year-old was out of rehab and back in Arkansas "where he will continue professional counseling and focus on rebuilding relationships with his family."
Rest assured, Josh will be
Josh Duggar messed up BIG TIME.
For those who don't remember, last summer Josh was discovered to be a member of the famous cheating website Ashley Madison. Not only did Duggar admit to being unfaithful to his wife Anna Duggar, but he also copped to having a porn addiction.
The news couldn't have come at a worse time considering Anna had JUST given birth to their now 7-month-old daughter Meredith Duggar.
Needless to say, the reality star's scandals didn't sit well with the Duggar fam, who had already forgiven the eldest son for MOLESTING HIS SISTERS years ago.
Many of the clan's members publicly shamed the father while others have supported him by visiting the sex rehabilitation center where he's currently seeking treatment.
Now that Jill & Jessa: Counting On has been picked up for a full season, a few of Josh's loved ones have spoken out on the past scandals. In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Jessa Duggar Seewald, Ben Seewald, and Joy Duggar, expressed how they feel about Mr. Duggar now.
Revealing her feelings on forgiveness, Jessa explained:
After going through quite the scandalous 2015, the Duggars have somehow managed to resurface on TV.
But not everyone in the family is excited to be thrust back into the spotlight — particularly Anna Duggar, who opens up about life after her turbulent year in Jill and Jessa: Counting On!
In a first look of the upcoming TLC show, the 27-year-old discusses the aftermath of Josh Duggar's scandals — including his admission of molesting underage girls as a teen and subsequent confession of cheating on Anna using the Ashley Madison infidelity website.
Now with Josh checked into a faith-based rehab center in Illinois, Anna talks about dealing with the public's reaction of her husband's actions. She says in the clip:
