Cannon married singer-songwriter Mariah Carey on April 30, 2008, at her private estate on Windermere Island in the Bahamas.[58] On April 30, 2011, Carey gave birth to fraternal twins.[59][60] After six years of marriage, the couple separated and Cannon filed for divorce in December 2014.[61][62][63][64] Their divorce was finalized in 2016.[65]

From 2020 onwards, Cannon attracted significant media attention for fathering a large number of children with multiple partners.

He has three children with model Brittany Bell: a son (born February 2017), a daughter (born December 2020) and another son (born September 2022).[66] Cannon and model Alyssa Scott have a son (born June 2021) who died of brain cancer at five months old,[67][68][69] and a daughter (born December 2022).[70][71] With Abby De La Rosa, he has twin sons (born June 2021) and a daughter (born November 2022).[72]

Racism controversy

On July 14, 2020, Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS after making racist and anti-Semitic remarks during an episode of his podcast Cannon's Class with Professor Griff.[79] Cannon endorsed conspiracy theories about Jewish control of finance, claimed that Jews had stolen the identity of "black people as the 'true Hebrews'", and cited Louis Farrakhan, who is labeled as an anti-Semite by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League.[80][81] Cannon also made black supremacist statements, calling white people "savages" who were "closer to animals", claiming the "only way that they can act is evil",[82][83] citing the pseudoscientific melanin theory. A statement from ViacomCBS noted that the company's relationship with Cannon was terminated due to his promotion of "hateful speech and... anti-Semitic conspiracy theories".[84]

Two days later, Cannon released an apology only for his remarks regarding anti-Semitism, saying: "I want to assure my Jewish friends, new and old, that this is only the beginning of my education."[85] He also demanded for complete ownership for Wild 'n Out, and an apology from ViacomCBS for his termination.[86] When Fox became aware of his podcast, the network immediately consulted him and accepted his public apology, allowing him to remain host of The Masked Singer.[87] He donated his first paycheck to the Simon Wiesenthal Center in light of the incident.[88][89] On February 5, 2021, ViacomCBS announced that Wild 'N Out would resume production with Cannon as host, saying that Cannon has "taken responsibility for his comments" and "worked to educate himself" through conversations with Jewish leaders.[85]
