Nick Cannon Admits He Mixed Up Mother’s Day Cards: “I Tried My Best”

Nick Cannon says that he mixed up the Mother's Day cards he made for the women in his life, last weekend. Reflecting on the holiday during Monday's episode of his new radio show The Daily Cannon, he admitted that he gave the wrong cards out to different mothers of his many children.

“I tried my best, I really did,” he said on the show. He added: “To show people how you really feel, write it down. And I was doing handwritten messages from the heart. So then as I’m writing the handwritten message, I get the cards mixed up. And then so when one baby mama reads the card about how I feel about the other baby mama…” From there, he joked, “See if I would just got some generic s–t that everybody else got, that wouldn’t have happened.”

Fans were not happy with the light-hearted tone Cannon was taking while recounting the story. Commenting on his Instagram post of the clip, one fan wrote: "The absolute crazy thing is he’s talking to a baby mama about it…and she’s sitting there smiling like she’s not hurt." Another added: "I have so many negative thoughts about Nick after hearing this. I’m going to keep them to myself and just move on. Smdh."

All-in-all, Cannon shares his 12 children with six different mothers. They include his ex-wife Mariah Carey as well as DJ Abby De La Rosa, Brittany Bell, Bre Tiesi, Alyssa Scott, and LaNisha Cole. De La Rosa serves as one of the co-hosts on The Daily Cannon.
