According to a report from Radar Online, the legendary songstress wants their 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan to have no parts in such a thing with his nine other children.
“Nick was sure his kids could make millions as a band,” a source reportedly said. “But Mariah poured cold water on his dream because she’s opposed to her children sharing the spotlight with Nick’s nine other kids from five different women.”
Monroe and Moroccan are Nick Cannon’s oldest children. Then he has 6-year-old Golden Sagon, 2-year-old Powerful Queen and 6-month-old Rise Messiah with Brittany Bell. He also shares 2-year-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with radio personality Abby De La Rosa, as well as 4-month-old Beautiful Zeppelin.
Rounding out the squad is 10-month-old Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi, 5-month-old Onyx Ice with LaNisha Cole and the late Zen who passed away at 5 months old in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer, and there’s also 7-month old Halo Marie he has with Alyssa Scott.
A band would be an interesting journey to embark on with all 12 of his kids, especially considering that Nick only recently said that he’s not interested in bringing everyone together just yet.
In a conversation with PEOPLE in April, the Wild ‘N Out host noted that all of his kids come together “when necessary,” but he feels like the “only person that would benefit from having everyone in the same space would probably be me.”
“I feel like qualitative experiences are when I can give everyone their own individual experience,” Nick Cannon said. “I actually love stepping into their world. Going to their sports games or giving them their personal time for the holidays. So I have no problem with bouncing around.”
He doesn’t feel like it will be this way forever, however, as most of his kids are still young. “I think as everyone probably gets older, and even as I slow down a little bit more, I’m sure everyone will start coming to me in one place,” he said.
“I actually think it works a lot better [right now]. Because everyone’s busy, not just me. It works to be able to take the time trying to go to them and show the value of being with them and not forcing anyone to come to me.”
