If you’ve been wondering why Nick Cannon has fathered so many children over the past few years, it seems an answer is finally coming to light – the California native has big plans of starting a family band. Radar Online published the report early on Friday (June 9) morning, revealing that Cannon is under the impression his offspring would be a “mega success” in the spotlight. Despite his confidence, however, ex-wife Mariah Carey reportedly isn’t on board with the project at this time.
“Nick was sure his kids could make millions as a band, but Mariah poured cold water on his dream,” an insider recently dished to the outlet. “She’s opposed to her children sharing the spotlight with Nick’s nine other kids from five different women,” they added. Neither parent has publicly addressed the gossip at this time, though we have seen their 12-year-old twins make appearances on their social media over the years.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that they have at least some of their parent’s charisma. Of course, only time will tell if either Morrocan or Monroe has pipes like Mariah or comedy chops like Cannon. It remains unclear how the Wild ‘N Out host’s other co-parents – Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, LaNisha Cole, Bre Tiesi, and Alyssa Scott – feel about their little ones getting in on the musical action. However, seeing as many of the children are still learning how to walk and talk, it’ll likely be some time before they move on to dancing and singing.
News of the family band comes just months after it was revealed that Mariah Carey planned to seek primary custody of her two children, seeing as they apparently spend most of their time with her anyway. Do you think that Nick Cannon could find further success by starting a band with all of his children? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.
