Nick Cannon made an appearance on The Language of Love podcast with Dr. Laura Berman on Wednesday where the star opened up about a variety of topics surrounding his love life and even shared his views on monogamy.
While speaking with Dr. Berman, he shared that he only considers himself or someone else as “not single” if they are married: “Married is not single. When you allow the government and paperwork to come in and say, ‘This is a bond, this is a covenant’ … you’re not single.” He added, “You can still make covenants without getting the government involved, where two people say, ‘We choose to be monogamous because we value this so much, we don’t want anyone to be a part of this energy we have,’ and I don’t feel like that’s healthy,” continued Cannon. “I don’t think monogamy is healthy. I feel like that gets into the space of selfishness and ownership.”
Aside from this, Cannon, 41, also talked about his love life and shared whether or not all of his eight children were planned: “I’m never gonna say that,” Cannon said when Dr. Berman asked if “most of these pregnancies were unplanned.” He went on to say, “I’m going to take full responsibility. Any woman that I know that I have unprotected sex with, there’s the potential to have a child,” continued Cannon. “So I feel like if I have unprotected sex with anyone I know – because one, I value everything about me so much if I’ve gotten to that point where I say, ‘I can take off this condom,’ I’m gonna say, ‘She could be the mother of my child.’ ” Now, despite having unprotected sex, he made it clear that it is not something he does with everyone; noting that he’s “the biggest germ freak in the world.”
The talk show host also discussed co-parenting and admitted “some” of his children’s mothers handled the situation “better than others”. However, he noted that “none of them have problems with each other. They’re such strong-willed women that they’re not worried.”
