According to reports, Mariah Carey wants to modify the custody agreement she and Nick Cannon have for their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Since announcing their divorce in 2014 after six years of marriage, the former couple has shared joint custody of their 11-year-old children. Since then, the creator of “Wild ‘N Out” has had ten additional children with other women.
A purported insider told Radar Online that the singer is preparing to file for primary custody of their son and daughter.
It is claimed that Carey’s explanation stems from Cannon’s full schedule. “The reality of the situation is that Monroe and Moroccan are usually with Mariah anyway. Nick doesn’t see much of them,” alleged the source.
The source did observe, though, that Cannon makes an effort to spend time with his older children. “She wants to put him on notice that he can’t just flit in and out of their lives while he attends to his other children. And she wants legal standing as the twins’ primary caregiver.”
Last year, it was widely reported that the Grammy-winning singer desired that her ex devote more time to their preteen children.
The actor has talked openly about the difficulties he experiences in attempting to spend time with each of his children.
Cannon also shares the names Golden Sagon, Powerful Queen, and Rise Messiah with Brittany Bell; Zion Mixolydian, Zillion Tier, and Beautiful Zeppelin with DJ Abby De La Rosa; daughter Halo and deceased son Zen with Alyssa Scott; Legendary Love with Bee Tiesi; and Onyx Ice Cole with LaNisha Cole. Five of his twelve children were born last year.
“Being a father of multiple kids, it’s always the biggest guilt on me is that I don’t get to spend enough time with all my children,” said Cannon when he appeared on an episode of “The Checkup with Dr. David Anges” last December. He added, “One, ‘cause I’m constantly working and two because I’m just spread thin.”
In previous interviews, the 42-year-old father expressed his willingness to have as many children as fate deemed necessary. As he rang in the new year, though, his response to a question about his intentions for future children had a different tone. “Clearly, I don’t have a plan,” the ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’ actor told Bravo’s Andy Cohen. “Honestly man, it’s just so much joy and elation that I have, the family that I have, and I embrace it. I love it, and I don’t have a plan. That should have been clear from the jump.”
