Nick Cannon Explains Why He Made New Song 'Divorce Papers', Says Lawyers 'Cause Most Of The Friction'
Nick Cannon said that despite rumors, he and Mariah Carey are on good terms.
Speaking candidly to Genius, the father of two opened up about his new song “Divorce Papers,” and told the outlet that although he and Carey, 46, are on good terms, dealing with lawyers is difficult.
Cannon also shared the meaning behind the song’s title, adding that it was a way of throwing the divorce in everyone’s face after rumors surfaced that he was the reason for the delay in their divorce proceedings.
“I was like, ‘You want Divorce Papers? Well here you go!'” the 35-year-old said. “The lawyer’s line was also me releasing a little frustration at the attorneys on both sides because lawyers always think they control the clients and they cause most of the friction, especially since my ex and I get along.”

Although he tries to be strong for the kids, Cannon admits that he lost his composure when exchanging them with Carey before.
“There is nothing more painful than parting with or having to drop your children off,” he said. “One day as my daughter was giving me a hug goodbye my eyes welled up and she looked at me and said, ‘Daddy, why do you have tears in your eyes?’ and I told her it was because I love her. She understood. She is a genius. She just hugged me harder and said I love you, too. Waterworks!”
