Nick Cannon Says He Makes $100 Million A Year

Nick Cannon says that his yearly earnings are upwards of $100 million. Cannon discussed his financial situation during a new interview with the Los Angeles Times. He explained that, because he has so many children with so many different women, his child support bills are through the roof.

“When you think about my lifestyle, I have to generate at least $100 million a year,” Cannon said. From there, he explained that the mothers in his life all wanted children when they met him. “A lot of them are in the same age group. And I just wanted to give them what they desired. I kept saying, ‘I can handle it.’”

Cannon further addressed criticism of him for allegedly being a "deadbeat dad." The Wild'n Out host isn't happy with the label and explained that it's unfairly attributed to him. “I’ve been villainized,” Cannon said. “I hear all the time: ‘You can’t be present for all those children.’ So therefore I get this deadbeat-dad title. It’s not about what I do for you or what I say to you, it’s about how you feel when I’m with you. If you feel loved when you see your dad, that’s what’s gonna resonate.”

The interview with Nick Cannon comes as he has begun hosting the show, Beat Shazam in Jamie Foxx's stead. Foxx is currently in the hospital dealing with an undisclosed medical issue. He was initially hospitalized in early April while filming the Netflix movie, Back in Action, in Atlanta, Georgia. “I literally have been saying prayers out loud. Words of affirmation for my big brother, I know he’s doing so much better," Cannon said during an interview with ET at the time.
