Nick Cannon made headlines this past weekend when he announced that Baby No. 8 — and Baby Mama No. 5 — was joining the fold.
The comedian, actor, rapper, media personality was spotted at a gender reveal party this weekend and his latest partner, Bre Tiesi — who just happens to be Johnny Manziel’s ex — hosted the bash and were seen being very cozy during the event.
Well, today he make a blanket statement about the handling of several issues. Which means at least one of the other four ladies were super pissed about something.
“I would like to address the comments I made on Monday’s show,” Cannon said. “I wish to always protect and respect the privacy of the mothers of all my children.”
Cannon added he was, “probably talking too fast and probably misspoke” when he announced Tiesi’s pregnancy. “I know I can do better when dealing with delicate and sensitive discussions. So I promise you, I promise the mothers of my children, I promise my family that I would do better and continue to be more understanding, caring, compassionate like they often show me each and every day.”
Cannon also said he knew Tieisi was pregnant before his son Zen died, but that he decided not to share the news right away. Zen died in December at 5 months old, following a battle with brain cancer.
If you are keeping track at home, Cannon shares 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with his ex-wife, Mariah Carey, as well as 4-year-old Golden and 13-month-old Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell. He also shares 7-month-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa.
No word on what ridiculousness this latest child will be called.
Cannon added some more to his apology, continuing with, “Grieving is a process and I’m still grieving each and every day, myself and Alyssa, our family, we still deal with that… people are trying to do the timing and all of that. None of that matters,” he said. “We lost a child. It was sincere and still is a sincere and real situation. I love her, and I love my son, Zen, and always will.”
He ended his monologue by apologizing to “everyone involved for any extra pain or confusion that I may have caused.”
Best of luck to all involved.
