Prolific father Nick Cannon has shared the eye-watering annual amount he spends on his many children.
Cannon, 42, recently welcomed baby number 11 with model Abby De La Rosa and opened up about his child support arrangement to social media gossip page The Neighbourhood Talk.
The talk show host was responding to a speculative report by The Sun which estimated his yearly spend on child support. The article claimed Cannon would be paying $US3 million (approx. $4.4m) by next year on his kids.
Cannon, however, has since refuted this claim and revealed he spends far more on his 11 children – whom he shares with six different women.
“I definitely spend a lot more than [$US3 million] on my children annually,” he confirmed, after the report claimed the new baby would add $US40,000 (approx. $60,000) per month to his child support payments.
“I don’t plan to ever have to participate in the governmental system of child.”
Cannon is father to twins Moroccan and Monroe, 11, Golden Sagon, five, Powerful Queen, one, Zion and Zillion, one, Legendary Love, six months, Onyx Ice, two months, and Rise Messiah, two months.
The father-of-11 shares his eldest twins with ex Mariah Carey. The couple were married from 2008 to 2016.
Most recently, he welcomed newborn daughter, Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, with De La Rosa, 31.
“Beautiful is privileged to have such a Loving and Spiritually inclined Mother. Your resilience and strength doesn’t go unnoticed,” Cannon said in Beautiful’s birth announcement.
“Watching you smile through the world’s madness and my constant craziness is so impressive. Not a day goes by that I am not filled with gratitude for all your care, words of affirmation, kindness and inspiration.”
The actor and comedian also had a son, Zen, who was born in June 2021, with Alyssa Scott. Zen died just five months later on December 5 of a rare brain tumour.
Cannon recently revealed he and Scott are expecting another child, his 12th.
This year alone, Cannon has welcomed four children, with another on the way.
