Nick Cannon is an American rapper, comedian and actor. He’s hosted America’s Got Talent since 2009, starred in Real Husbands of Hollywood since 2013 and wrote and starred in his documentary F#Ck Nick Cannon (2013). He’s released two studio albums, the most recent in 2014, White People Party Music. He had a planned album named Stages, which ended up not getting released, although a few singles have been recorded. He also has his show Wild ‘N Out which started in 2005 and came back on air in 2015.
Cannon was raised as a Christian and still holds those Christian values. He’s mentioned how he’d go to church every day as a kid and how he still goes as an adult when possible. He’s also talked about his beliefs on Twitter and how wars shouldn’t be fought in God’s name. “Sad thing is religion and rules turn more people away from God than towards him. GOD is LOVE.”
Nick boxes frequently and even challenged Eminem for a match for charity, which the latter didn’t take on. The offer was made when Cannon and Eminem’s ex Mariah Carey were still together, but his offer still stands it seems.
Cannon is a Democrat and supported Obama in both his elections. Not only that, together with Mariah Carey they told Barack and Michelle they were expecting twins before telling anyone else. The actor will not be voting for Hillary Clinton though, and certainly not for Trump either.
Cannon married Mariah Carey in 2008, with whom he had fraternal twins in 2011; Monroe and Moroccan Scott. In 2014 they had officially separated and in 2015 the divorce process was finalized. In March 2016 he started dating dancer Rozonda Thomas.
Eminem and Mariah Carey had a known feud after a failed relationship, ranging from pieces of lyrics directed at one another and even entire songs around their bad blood. Nick Cannon was caught between this feud and gladly took part in it, writing a number of songs directed at Eminem. Ironically, it was at Carey that the rapper would direct his unresolved feelings in his track “Divorce Papers”.
