Nick Cannon gives his baby mommas — and his children — whatever they need. Or so he says! But he’s not ready to commit to giving them a set monthly allowance. Wait, what?
The 42-year-old television host popped up on Monday in a new interview with Hot 104.1 FM-Radio out of St. Louis. During the chat, the Masked Singer superstar revealed his child support habits are more about day-to-day vibes than they are about getting a monthly budget set in stone. Ooookay…

The San Diego-born star first boasted about how he was a “provider” during the on-air interview. Then, he jumped into a clarification comment. The twelve-time father explained he does not give his six baby mommas a “monthly allowance” or a “set amount” of money each week, month, or year.
Instead, the actor said, it’s all about popping up with cash and resources whenever they need it the most:
“I don’t give myself that [rule]. What they need, they get it.”
Further clarifying his apparently inconsistently-applied support habits, the former Nick Cannon Show daytime host added:
“There’s never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn’t receive.”
Well, that’s good to hear. But what if what they need is security? Knowing they’ll have their monthly needs met? Wouldn’t a regular budget be pretty good for that?
Of course, it brings up a question about how “what they need” is inevitably going to differ from situation to situation. And woman to woman! Clearly, Mariah Carey probably doesn’t need quite as much financial help as the others. Heck, just the money she makes every December can get Dem Babies through the whole year!
Also, we can’t help but think about recent blow-ups involving baby mommas Bre Tiesi and LaNisha Cole. Cannon was able to quickly quell those potentially ugly social media situations, but still…
Court-tracked child support exists for a reason, right? Mothers deserve to know what they’re going to get and track it legally to budget for their kids. Besides, didn’t we hear Nick paying an insane amount of child support already?!?! What happened to that??? Does he not count it? Guess it’s all parenting and vibes now?!

Anyways, the Wild’N Out star didn’t stop there! He made sure to take some interview time to praise all six of his beloved baby mommas — Carey, Tiesi, Cole, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, and Alyssa Scott — by concluding:
“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.”
Well, that’s nice. Apparently, he only regrets not adding one more high-profile woman to the coparenting mix. Oh well!
Although, come to think of it, there might still be time to up the total. Nick is just 42 years old, after all… Hell, he’s recently joked (we hope??) about having kids until he’s in his eighties!!!
What do U make of this child support take, tho, Perezcious readers?! Sound OFF down in the comments (below)!
