For someone who comes off as irresponsible for having a ton of kids within the same timespan with different mothers, Nick Cannon seems to have it all figured out.
As we’ve previously reported, Cannon, 42, said he spends more than $3 million a year on his 12 kids. In November, the the Wild N’ Out host said, “I don’t plan to ever have to participate in the governmental system of child.”
Per People, Cannon is sharing new details about the financial arrangement he has with the mother of his children. While he does not give them a “monthly allowance,” he never denies them finances when they need it.
“It ain’t even about a monthly allowance or amount of money because I don’t give myself that,” he explained. “What they need, they get it. There’s never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn’t receive.” He added, “That’s why they call me the provider.”
The comedian also expressed the “respect and admiration” he has for the six mothers individually. “Everybody has their challenges,” he adds. “But when you really understand this woman has given the greatest sacrifice and sacrificed her body to bring a child into [this world], that’s the best gift any man could ask for.”
Earlier this month, Cannon gushed about his ex-wife, Mariah Carey. When asked about who was the love of his life, he named the mother of his first-born twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 11.
Nick is also a father to sons Golden Sagon, 6, and Rise Messiah Cannon, 6 months, and daughter Powerful Queen, 2, with Brittany Bell. He shares twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 21 months, and daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, 4 months, with Abby De La Rosa; son Legendary Love, 8 months, with Bre Tiesi; daughter Onyx Ice Cole, 5 months, with LaNisha Cole. He’s also dad to two children with Alyssa Scott, son Zen, who died at 5 months old in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer, and daughter Halo Marie, 3 months.
