3. CHRISTINA MILIAN
Cannon began dating his “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” co-star Christina Milian soon after their stint on the movie. He sustained his relationship with the iconic singer and actress for two years before their split in 2005.
Following their highly-publicized breakup, Milian released a series of chart-topping tracks, each focusing on her experience with an unnamed unfaithful lover. Fans were quick to conclude the songs were her way of revealing the reason behind their infamous split.
Milian confirmed it in a 2019 interview, admitting she found some implicating evidence of the actor’s infidelity on his phone.
4. KIM KARDASHIAN
During a 2014 interview, Cannon opened up about his sexual escapades with several Hollywood A-listers including reality star Kim Kardashian. The comedian and Kardashian had their brief fling from September 2006 to January 2007 before going their separate ways for good.
5. MARIAH CAREY
To date, singer Mariah Carey remains Nick Cannon’s longest and most notable relationship, as she represents his only marriage. Cannon and the five-time Grammy-winner legalized their union in 2008, in an intimate ceremony held at Carey’s house in the Bahamas.
Their marriage officially ended in 2016, two years after the divorce filing. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey welcomed two children, fraternal twins Monroe and Moroccan, born 2011.
While their marriage crashed amid rumors of the actor’s extramarital affair, Cannon once admitted his ex-wife was the only one among his exes he could ever remarry. The duo has maintained a good co-parenting relationship.
6. JESSICA WHITE
Model Jessica White reportedly began dating Cannon in 2015, while he was still married. Due to his marriage, the couple, who claimed to be desperately in love, kept their relationship under wraps.
Sadly, their love story was short-lived, with the twosome calling it quits in 2016. Canon followed the breakup with a new single titled “Jessica,” in which he described intimate details about their romantic affair.
Not long afterwards, the twosome revived their relationship, but not before Canon fathered a child with model Brittany Bell.
The exact timeline of their romance remains vague, as White only confirmed their split in mid-2020, shortly after Bell revealed she was expecting Cannon’s second child.
7. BRITTANY BELL
Soon after his 2016 split from White, Cannon jumped into a romance with model Brittany Bell. They welcomed a son, Golden Cannon in February 2017.
Three years later, their daughter Princess Heiress arrived, earning Nick Cannon and Brittany Bell bouts of congratulations. Heiress’ birth came as a surprise to many, as the show host was seemingly dating his on-again-off-again partner Jessica White at the time.
White confirmed her split from Cannon in August 2020, weeks after Bell announced her second pregnancy.
8. LANISHA COLE
Nick Cannon sustained a brief relationship with game show host, photographer and model, Lanisha Cole, in 2017. Their romance ended almost as soon as it began, with Cole announcing the split via a lengthy Instagram post.
9. ABBY DE LA ROSA
Nick Cannon became a second-time father of twins when he welcomed his twin boys Zion and Zillion with girlfriend and professional DJ Abby De La Rosa.
Although it is unclear when Nick Cannon and Abby De La Rosa kicked off their relationship, they announced their expectant parents status in April 2021, welcoming the boys two months later.
10. ALYSSA SCOTT
Model Alyssa Scott earned a spot on this list when her brief fling with Cannon left her pregnant with his seventh child. She announced her pregnancy in May 2021, a month after De La Rosa went public with hers.
Following the birth of Cannon’s twin boys in June, Scott announced she was barely days away from welcoming her son, Zen S. Cannon. Her revelation came after she celebrated the music artist on Father’s Day by sharing a photo of them together on her Instagram stories.
Having previously expressed his aversion to monogamy, one can only hope Canon’s next love interest would live up to the beauty standards of his exes.
