  • Nick Cannon said his ex-wife Mariah Carey is "still mad" that he gave cellphones to their twins.
  • Cannon said that Carey did not want the twins to have phones but he gave them anyway this year.
  • Cannon shared this story in a preview clip of his daytime show which airs for the first time on Monday.

Nick Cannon said in a preview clip of his upcoming daytime show that he went against his ex-wife Mariah Carey's wishes by giving cellphones to their twin children.

Cannon and Carey got married in 2008 and had twins, Moroccan and Monroe, in 2011 before separating in 2014. Their divorce was finalized in 2016.

On his new eponymous chat show, Cannon explained how the twins wanted phones but Carey was against the idea.

"My oldest twins Roc and Roe wanted a cell phone at eight," He said in the preview clip to his audience. "And they have iPads and I was all for it but Mariah was like, 'Uh uh they aren't going to be Googling us. Learning about all their new brothers and sisters, no we aren't playing.'"

He continued: "I respected it at eight but then we made a deal and said at 10 then they can have it. Is 10 a more reasonable age? Mariah said 'Uh Uh, no.'"

Earlier this year, the twins turned 10, and Cannon said he got them the mobile phones behind Carey's back.

"So at 10, I snuck and I still got them the cell phones for their birthday," he said. "We had this amazing party with jump jumps, their friends came, it was so amazing. Then it was time to open the gifts, I was like 'I'm going to leave these right here and tell your mama I'll be back.' Mariah is still mad at me till this day."

Cannon then said "Mariah forgive me" to the camera as the audience applauded his story.

Moroccan and Monroe are two of Cannon's seven children. He has had four children with three separate women in the last year. Cannon recently told Entertainment Tonight that he does not want to limit how many children he has in the future but after his therapist advised him to take a break, Cannon said he will be celibate until 2022.

I agree with Mariah on this one. Cell phones are proven by scientific psychological study to open a gateway to all things terrible for your kids, be it extended screen time and the damage that causes or other negative effects. Cell phones should be older teens and with a series of management plans in place. Don't believe me, watch the response to any kid or teen when you try to take it away from them... they will fight you for it like a addict will fight for their drugs.
