Nick Cannon is no stranger to the world of entertainment. He’s a comedian, actor, rapper, and television presenter. The 41-year-old also supports a large family and is currently expecting his eighth with fifth baby mama Bre Tiesi.
According to Goldie Schon, a family law attorney and legal expert based out of California, The Masked Singer host pays an estimated $1.2 million a year in child support.
“When you have somebody like Nick Cannon, who’s an extremely high-income earner, the courts in California have the right to deviate from the typical child support guidelines.
“[His] net worth does not get taken into account, but his yearly income does. If he is taking home somewhere between $3 and $5 million a year, you have to look at what would it take to have the children kept in the lifestyle of both parents.”
The legal expert believes Nick may not have to pay child support to wife Mariah Carey, 51, for their ten-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, since she likely makes more than he does.
