Nick Cannon has come forth with ex-wife Mariah Carey‘s response to his 12 children with six different women.

Although Carey, with whom he shares twins Moroccan and Monroe, was married to the rapper for eight years, she doesn’t often voice her opinions on Cannon’s personal life choices. However, in a recent episode of The Jason Lee Podcast, Cannon dished on what he calls her “high frequency” response.

Here are all the details of how the Songbird Supreme navigates her relationship with Cannon.

12 children and counting

Over the last 13 years, Cannon has had 12 children with six women. Twins with Mariah Carey; two sons and a daughter with Brittany Bell; twin sons and a daughter with Abby De La Rosa; a son with Bre Tiesi; a daughter with LaNisha Cole; and daughter and deceased son with Alyssa Scott.

Five of the 12 children were born during the second half of 2022. Since 2017, Cannon has had 10 children overall, but during his interview on The Jason Lee Podcast he said “it doesn’t feel like it’s too much.”

What Carey really thinks of Cannon’s children

On the podcast, Cannon spoke for over an hour and a half, with Lee breaking the question: “What does she [Carey] think of all the children?” 

Cannon admitted that Carey is “High frequency. . . She always asks me, ‘You aight? You good? How you doing? You handling it all?” Still, Cannon says that Carey’s fine with his personal decision to have multiple children, “’As long as [he] don’t bring none of that…to the Manor of Carey.'” 

He added “I think there was a narrative out there that she was seeking custody.” But he admitted they were at dinner the night before. Nonetheless, their overall response is to be ahead of  those “low-frequency messages.” 

“We are the best of friends now,” Cannon said after Lee questioned him about getting back together with Carey. He thinks “it would be too difficult for multiple reasons,” including their children and personal relationships.

But “since we’ve been divorced, we’ve never had an argument,” he admitted.
