Dad of 12 Nick Cannon does not give his babies’ mothers a monthly stipend.
Nick Cannon described himself as a “provider” in an interview with Hot 104.1, revealing that he does not send a set monthly allowance or any set amount of money to the women with whom he shares children.
“I don’t give that [guideline] to myself,” the TV show host explained. “They get what they need.”
“There has never been anything that one of my children’s mothers requested and did not receive.”
The Masked Singer has two daughters with his ex-wife, Mariah Carey, three with model and dancer Brittany Bell, three with former radio personality Abby De La Rosa, two with model Alyssa Scott, and one each with Bre Tiesi and LaNisha Cole.
“Everyone has their challenges, but when you realize 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,” he said of his children’s mothers.
“Regardless of what happens in any situation… I’ll never utter anything disrespectful or negative about any of my children’s mothers.”
Another recent chat with The Shade Room revealed that the 42-year-old comedian regrets not having a child with his ex-girlfriend, Christina Milian.
“I know this is going to go viral, but when Christina Milian and I were doing ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing,’ I recall finding out she was pregnant [years later]… ‘Dang, man,’ I thought, but I was so pleased for her.”
“I remember when we were kids, we were in love, and we talked about it,” he added. “However, to each his own.” Life has a purpose. The Universe determines how it’s supposed to be given.

After meeting on the set of the teen comedy film Love Don’t Cost A Thing, the pair dated for two years.
However, after a two-year relationship, they split up due to Nick Cannon’s infidelity.
Milian opened up to E! News in 2019 about hacking into Nick Cannon’s phone and being appalled by what she discovered.
“The next thing you know, I was reading [everything]. For, like, a month, I was reading messages. It was unreal that it was happening. He was living at my house. … It was just like, “Wait, under my roof this is happening?” It just kind of blew me away.”
“I was like, “I cannot bust him when I am away. I need to bust him in person, so in the meantime, I’m gonna get my intel, make sure that this is for real for real,’” she added.
“And it was for real, so it was enough. … I wanted to be able to see him in person, go over it — not like it would change anything — but part of me was like, “He was my first love.”‘
