Nick Cannon thinks it's "selfish" to date one person exclusively.
The "Wild 'n Out" host's mentality is hardly surprising, given that he's on the verge of welcoming an eighth child with a fifth woman.
"I don't think monogamy is healthy," he said on "The Language of Love" podcast with Dr. Laura Berman. "I feel like that gets into the space of selfishness and ownership."
In fairness, Nick, 41, believes vows are sacred, and marriage should be monogamous. Other than that, though, it's all fair game.
"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," said Nick, who was previously married to Mariah Carey from 2008 to 2016.
"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," he added.
Back when it was revealed that the "Masked Singer" host was welcoming his seventh child, he insisted that all his children were planned, something he still maintains.
"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," he said. "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.'"
Ironically, Nick added that he is "the biggest germ freak in the world," so he's conscious of who he has unprotected sex with.
Nick welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-wife Mariah Carey in 2011. He and beauty queen Brittany Bell welcomed son Golden "Sagon" in 2017 and daughter Powerful Queen in December 2020. He then had twin sons Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with DJ Abby De La Rosa in June 2021. He also welcomed his late son Zen with model Alyssa Scott also in June 2021.
