Nick Cannon had a vision that he would ‘be a father of many’

Nick Cannon was on a podcast recently, The Language of Love with Dr. Laura Berman. Dr. Berman is a sex and relationship therapist. She asked Nick about his unconventional family setup – eleven children with six mothers. Some of the moms co-parent with him, and some are in relationships. Nick told Dr. Berman that having a lot of kids was something that came to him in a vision. He believes it will be his legacy. He also had some truly gross things to say about how he expects the mothers of his children to be monogamous to him, but not the other way around.

He says a vision told him he’d have lots of kids: “It’s almost like when you have these manifestations or even these visions, if that’s what we want to call them, it’s like, ‘Oh, that all makes sense now,'” Cannon told Berman.

“You get them in pieces, or they’re fragmented,” he said of visions he’d had about fatherhood, explaining that the visions never came through like a “Father Abraham conversation.” According to the Bible, God promised to make Father Abraham the “father of a multitude of nations.”

“I’ve never heard that clarity, but I heard that like, ‘Yo, you’re gonna be a father of many. There’s gonna be your great influence, your lineage, your offspring are gonna do great things,'” Cannon said.

“I had the vision that my name will be great as, like, the Rockefeller name,” Cannon added.

Double standard alert: Cannon has previously said he is non-monogamous. But he added that his preference is for the mothers of his children to wait until their kids are a little older to pursue monogamous relationships with other people.

“I would hope it would happen a little bit later, once you’ve come into your own of what our parenting infrastructure looks like,” Cannon said on the podcast. Cannon also said he would be a little “concerned” if the mothers of his children were out sowing their “wild oats” and being “out in these streets.”

I’ll give Nick Cannon this: he is very good at manifesting. If he had that vision, he made it happen. The comparison to Rockefeller is interesting. I don’t know if a billionaire oil tycoon who gave us ExxonMobil and Chevron is still held in high regard. But Elon has plenty of devoted fanboys so what do I know. Anyway, I’m sure Nick’s kids will grow up to do interesting things, but I maintain what I have always said about this situation. Having that many kids so close in age, with that many households, is not how you set yourself up for success to be an involved dad. Think about how hard it would be to divide your time equally among eleven kids across six households. If he spent one hour with each kid in a day, it would take eleven hours. Of course, he doesn’t have that kind of time, because he has to make $100 million a year to support everybody (allegedly; I don’t believe that figure, I’m sorry). Somebody somewhere is getting shortchanged in this equation, it’s just how math works. Also, I gagged at him not wanting his partners to be “sowing their wild oats.” That made me mad. How did you come to have so many babies in the first place, my dude? Was it not a case of you sowing your wild oats? Hast not thine oats been sown across the hills and valleys of the entire Los Angeles Basin? The hypocrisy. He should be thankful that six women gave him all these beautiful babies in the first place.

    That’s all I’ve got.

    🐖🐖🐖🐖🐖 That is all I have.

    It’s easier to manifest getting a lot of women pregnant than it is to become Rockefeller.

  4. HeyKay says:

    Shut up Nick. Ugh.
    Let’s all ignore him.
    Maybe we could post photos of puppies or easy recipes, or cute and comfy shoes instead.
    Nick, Chrissy T, Hilary and Alec, everyone in the Kardashian bs, let’s starve them of the attention-oxygen they crave.

    “Hast not thine oats been sown across the hills and valleys of the entire Los Angeles Basin?” My coffee spit out moment of the morning 🌄. Also, why is a relationship expert giving a platform to a polygamist?

  6. death by bacon says:

    This sounds like the beginnigs of a messiah cult. And those children will not have a good foundation to do great things from him. Any accomplishments will be due to their mother’s parenting.

    Hast not thine oats been sown across the hills and valleys of the entire Los Angeles Basin?”

  7. MaryContrary says:

    He is a narcissist and anti-semitic. I have zero time for this a-hole. Good luck to all of his children. And shame on this woman for giving him a platform.

  8. Grandma Susan says:

    Many fancy words from Nick to justify being a promiscuous A-hole without a conscience.

    • ME says:

      I know right. He doesn’t want those women to act like HIM. He’s the “ho” in this situation…a dirty one too.

  9. Jana says:

    I can’t believe the $100 million either…

    So he’s like Father Abraham eh? Father to many nations. Insert all the eye roll emojis.

    In almost every pic with his kids he is overly animated and has this Kate Middleton maniacal expression. Guess he has to be super “on” for his kids to remember him since he has so many of them and has to make the rounds every day.

    Wait until they are 11 and have all these activities. He can spend 7 minutes at a golf tournament then run across town to catch 2 words of a spelling bee (better be animated in that crowd cause the kid won’t know you’re there you can’t stay), then boot it to the ice skating competition, where he can stay 12 minutes, then beat traffic to make it to soccer. In that scenario there are 6 kids he didn’t get to that afternoon.

    I agree with Death by bacon, if his kids accomplish anything notable, it will be because of their mothers.

    It’s so funny I had a vision that Nick Cannon was a total slime bag. Huh

    Used to like him, but he’s nuts. Maybe after the marriage to Mariah ended, he went on a downward spiral. Before that he seemed very normal. Who knows.
