Nick Cannon explains why the mothers of his children do not have to get along

Cannon has eight children by five different women, four of whom were born within the same year. His first pair of twins, Moroccan and Monroe, he shares with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. Cannon hasn’t married since and says he doesn’t believe in the traditional construct of marriage. 

One thing Nick Cannon has become known for, better or worse, is having children. Cannon has multiple children with various women, none of whom he’s in monogamous relationships with. But Cannon says his views on relationships are made known to the women in his life. And, he says it doesn’t matter if the mother of his children gets along with one another. 

“I don’t keep no secrets. They know how I move. I multitask,” he explained. With so many questions regarding how he is financially providing for so many children and how he splits his time, Cannon doesn’t hold back.

“Life’s complicated, you know,” he said in an interview, per The Jasmine Brand. “Some of the women that I’m involved with deal with it better than others. I think they’re all confident and secure in themselves to even have to deal with a person like me.”

He previously stated that sometimes the women are perplexed by his lifestyle

Having to juggle different children in different households and their mothers can’t be an easy task. Cannon admits that things can be hard at times but he says he is upfront with the women in his life from the beginning.

He continued: “I have struggled with the co-parenting…you find yourself in these really nice warm family environments [and] you want to really be in that family mode,” he explained, adding that he quickly discovers that it’s not easy to fall into a pattern of being with a woman he has children with but without full commitment.

Though he relishes in fatherhood, Cannon is ready to hang up the towel. “I don’t have the bandwidth for it anymore,” he said during a recent appearance on the podcast The Language of Love. “Because I feel like I do owe the women that are currently in my life, I owe them as much energy, time, and effort as I possibly [can] – especially my kids.”

With strings attached, it only adds to the complication. “I’m a lover, I’m a hopeless romantic,” he said. “You put me in the right environment with someone I have a child with and I watch you be an amazing mother, of course, I’m attracted.”
