Nick Cannon says that he must be mindful not to bring any of his "bullshit" into his ex-wife Mariah Carey's home. Cannon reflected on their relationship during a recent interview on The Jason Lee Show. The full interview will be available through REVOLT’s digital platforms on Tuesday, May 9.
“She’s high frequency, man. She always like — she asks me all the time, like, ‘You alright? How you doin’? You handling it all,” Cannon says in the interview. “She’s like, 'as long as you don’t bring none of that bullsh*t over to the Manor of Carey.’” Cannon further added: “She lives in her own world. Nothing can infiltrate that. So, when we talk daily, she’s just checking on my spirit.”
Nick Cannon With Mariah Carey
Cannon and Carey were married from 2008 to 2016. Of Cannon's twelve total kids, two of them are with the legendary singer. Having so many children with different women, Cannon often gets accused of being a "deadbeat dad." This is a criticism he pushed back on during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times.
“I hear all the time: ‘You can’t be present for all those children.’ So therefore I get this deadbeat dad title," Cannon told the outlet. He then explained that he pays $3 million dollars in child support, annually. To that effect, he says he earns upwards of $100 million per year, meaning he must be working harder than his haters think. “That’s not a lot of money. When you think about my lifestyle, I have to generate at least $100 million a year,” he shared. “Everybody thinks Ryan Seacrest has tons of money. I do everything that he does times 10. Well, not times 10 — times three. Because he does a lot.” In addition to serving as the host of Wild’ n Out and other shows, Cannon recently began filling in for Jamie Foxx on Beat Shazam amid the actor's hospitalization.
