Nick Cannon has said that he doesn't give any of his 12 children's mothers a 'monthly allowance' from him.

Cannon appeared on Home Morning Show radio when he was asked about the finances regarding his children.

Nick then responded that whilst none of his baby mamas receive monthly payments to help look after his ever-expanding brood, they do get anything they ask for.

Cannon even joked that he has been nicknamed "the provider" by one of his children's mothers.

“But to your point, to answer it in a very serious way, it ain't even about a monthly allowance or amount of money, because I don't give myself that," he said.

"What they need, they get. There's never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn't receive."

"Regardless of what goes on in any scenario, I’m gonna always show love and respect. I’ll never say anything disrespectful or bad about any of the mothers of my children."
