How rich is Nick Cannon? It’s been forever ago since the former America’s Got Talent host resigned from his position (after his NBC comments), but now it seems like he’s doing just fine! It looked like the rapper-comedian’s net worth stood to take a hit, but that may not be the case.
For those who know Nick Cannon as Mariah Carey’s ex-husband, we’ll have you know that the multi-faceted, turban-wearing media personality is much more than that. The 37-year-old moonlights as an actor, record producer, entrepreneur, rapper, comedian, and radio personality! Yes, Nick Cannon is a man of many talents, and has shown his magic on the silver screen with flicks like Roll Bounce, Drumline, and Love Don’t Cost a Thing.
The father of Mariah Carey’s twins has been the host of several TV shows, including NBC’s Caught on Camera with Nick Cannon and MTV’s Wild ‘N Out. From 2009 to 2016, Cannon was the face of America’s Got Talent along with judges Mel B, Howie Mandel, and Simon Cowell. However, the star announced his untimely departure from the show, following disparaging racially-charged remarks allegedly made by him during his Showtime comedy special, Stand Up, Don’t Shoot.

On Good Terms
- For most people, co-parenting isn’t the easiest thing for exes to do—especially when the divorce ended badly—but for the Wild ‘N’ Out star, it’s the exact opposite.
- “The common denominator is we both want what’s best for our children,” the former America’s Got Talent host, 37, told Us Weekly. “You put them first and you step back and become selfless in making decisions and it’s pretty easy.”
- “That’s my homegirl. Always will be,” he continued. “Whatever she does, that’s Mariah Carey. She can do no wrong in my book.”
- Cannon’s 11-month-old son, Golden, (with Brittany Bell) is also a priority in his life but that hasn’t stopped him from being a father equally to all of his kids.
- “ I love being a father,” he told Us in November. “A father is the greatest blessing and greatest responsibility that can ever be bestowed on you. So hopefully I can do it again too.”
- Whether it’s Nick Cannon’s songs and albums or Nick Cannon’s movies and TV shows, the TV host still supports his ex-wife, whenever she’s being portrayed negatively in the press.
- “Always, I feel like it’s unfair and the press can just mistreat someone for headlines because they spin the story the way they want to spin it,” said Cannon. “The people who are my loved ones, I’m always concerned for them.”
- He added, “I’ll always stand up for anybody that’s being mistreated, misquoted.”
Instead of Nick Cannon’s tour, fans can look forward to seeing the father of three play on Team Lakers, during the NBA All-Star Celebrity game on Friday, February 16 at 7:00 p.m. EST at the Los Angeles Convention Center! The real question; will he be hitting the court in his infamous turban?
