Nick Cannon explains why he doesn’t give his children’s mums ‘monthly allowances’

The presenter has 12 children.

Nick Cannon has explained why he doesn’t give the mothers of his 12 children a monthly allowance.

To date, Cannon has fathered 12 children to half a dozen women, and with his new TV show, ‘Who’s Having My Baby?’, his brood could get even bigger.

He has fathered two children with Mariah Carey, three with Brittany Bell, three with Abby De La Rosa, two with Alyssa Scott, and one each with Bre Tiesi and LaNisha Cole.

The oldest is 11-year-old twins and the youngest is 3 months old.

Usually, if a couple has a child and for whatever reason, they don’t remain together, they both financially contribute to raising the child.

But while Cannon claims he is a ‘provider’ for his family, he admitted that doesn’t send any of the mothers cash every month.

You may be thinking to yourself, ‘Well that’s not right’ but while he doesn’t just hand over a set amount of money each month, he says his children have never gone without.

Speaking to Hot 104.1, Nick said: “I don’t give myself that guideline. 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.”

In the same interview, he also took time to praise the mothers of his children.

He said: “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.

“Regardless of what goes on in any scenario, I’ll never say anything disrespectful or bad about any of the mothers of my children.”
