As rumors about his lengthy divorce from Mariah Carey continue to mount, Nick Cannon is responding in the best way he knows how: through music.
The 35-year-old dropped a freestyle called "Divorce Papers" on Thursday, in which he talks about the media's coverage of his relationship and how the split has affected their five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
"When y'all need help/ y'all call me/ When I need help, y'all call TMZ/ and y'all believe everything that you see," he raps. "We single now but we really need to think about is how a child deals/ how a child feels/ because we got two and they brilliant for real/ resilient for real."
The America's Got Talent host continues, "My daughter said daddy why your eyes in tears/ because last time I dropped your brother off I didn't get a call the next day and it felt like years/ and Ima be honest/ sometimes I hate to hear you're on the other line having fun without me/ I wonder if my son will ever doubt me…/ What's love I don't care about it I just want my kids to be safe."
Despite the song's heartbreaking lyrics, Nick explains that he and Mariah are ultimately in a "great place" and trying to do what's best for their kids.
"[We're] diligently moving things along so we both can continue to be happy," he shares. "I am happy for her and all her new endeavors, both personal ones and professional ones. I sincerely hope the media doesn't once again try to manipulate my words or my purpose for releasing this…"
