Nick Cannon Defends His Choice to Father 7 Children With 4 Different Women
"Masked Singer" host Nick Cannon opened up about having 7 children with different women.
He said on his radio show that he was having his children "on purpose.”
Nick has fathered four children this year alone, including twins Zion and Zillon with DJ Abby De La Rosa.
Nick pushed back against people who question why he has several partners with whom he shares children. He said, "That’s a Eurocentric concept when you think about the idea that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life. Really that's just to classify property when you think about it. When you go into that mindset...just the idea that a man should have one women — we shouldn't have anything. I have no ownership over this person.”
He also said, “I've never subscribed to that mentality. I understand the institution of marriage, but if we go back to what that’s about, that was to classify property. One father gave another man his daughter for land. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers. We created a beautiful entity.”
Nick went even further to say that"women are the ones that open themselves up and say 'I would like to allow this man in my world. And I will birth this child.' It ain’t my decision. I’m following suit.”
He claims his partners know about his stance on monogamy.He said, “I’m not going around like, 'Who am I gonna impregnate next?'"He also added that he believes "the woman is always the one who leads and makes decisions.”
Nick also shared his deep love for his children by saying, "It's so amazing. I really just love being around my kids and that youthful energy it feels like you get to relive every time.”
