Nick Cannon talks about being the provider to his kids
Nick Cannon is opening up about the financial support he gives to the mothers of his 12 kids.
Despite calling himself a provider during a Monday interview with Hot 104.1, the Masked Singer host made it very clear that he doesn’t give a monthly allowance or a fixed amount of money to the six women with whom he shares his children.
The 42-year-old TV host said,
“I don’t give myself that [guideline],”
“What they need, they get it.”
The actor continued,
“There’s never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn’t receive.”
The American Drumline actor shares 12 kids – two with pop icon Mariah Carey, three with Brittany Bell, three with Abby De La Rosa, two with Alyssa Scott, and each with Bre Tiesi and LaNisha Cole.
The comedian also gushed about the respect and admiration he has for all his baby mothers.
He told his listeners,
“Everybody has their challenges – 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,”
The Love Does Not Cost a Thing star continued,
“Regardless of what goes on in any scenario … I’ll never say anything disrespectful or bad about any of the mothers of my children.”
