Nick Cannon opened up about his celibacy struggle on his daytime talk show this week.
Cannon, already a father of 7, clarified that his therapist advised him to stop sowing his seed after he fathered a child with Instagram model Bre Tiesi.
So, technically, he didn’t break his celibacy vow.
“My therapist was one of the ones who said I should probably be celibate and the reason why is because I had shared that news about Bre being pregnant,” he told guest Angela Yee.
Cannon explained that Tiesi was pregnant when his youngest son Zen died in December.
“This whole process was extremely difficult for me because I’ve known about Bre’s pregnancy for a while now, before my youngest son Zen passed in December. And so even going through all of that, this was always in the back of my mind. When is the right time? How do I share this? We didn’t expect Zen to pass away. All of the news was so unexpected. So to try to figure out a chronological order or a hierarchy, it kept me up at night. I always talk about the guilt that I feel in losing Zen, and even how to deal with this for my other children, and that was a lot of the guilt as well. Guilt for everyone involved. And I just wanna say thank you to every one of my family members for understanding and helping me through this process.”
