Nick Cannon has confessed he still has “intimate” relationships with some of the mothers of his children.
The TV host is set to become a father for the eighth time, having confirmed last month that he is expecting a baby boy with model Bre Tiesi.
Cannon also shares 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with his ex-wife Mariah Carey, son Golden and daughter Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell, and twins Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa. Sadly, his son Zen, whom he shared with Alyssa Scott, died at the age of five months following a battle with cancer in December.
While Cannon no longer has any sort of romantic involvement with Mariah, he indicated during a chat with his therapist Dr Laura Berman on The Nick Cannon Show on Wednesday that he still has “intimacy” with the other women.
“I think that’s what I struggle with because, clearly if I care for someone, if I have a child with someone, there has been intimacy. And there probably will continue to be intimacy because there’s true, authentic love there,” he said.
Cannon went on to insist he doesn’t have a “sister wife” or polygamist setup.
“I think they have to (know that). I think the world knows,” the 41-year-old continued. “And it’s easy to say, ‘Look, let’s just focus on our child or children,’ and then what ends up happening… then one good night at Nobu and the sake gets going… that chemistry… I’m a lover. I’m a hopeless romantic. 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 to you. Everything’s complicated. Some of the women that I’m involved with deal with it better than others. I think they’re all secure in themselves to even have to deal with a person like me.”
