He also spoke out about the unconventional relationships he has with his four children’s mothers, other than Carey. Cannon stated that Carey and he are “really great friends” as co-parents. But, Cannon claims there is not intimacy in their relationship.
However, he suggested that he still has an intimate relationship with his four children’s mothers. He told his therapist that if he cares for someone or has a child with someone, then there is intimacy. “And there probably will continue to be intimacy because there’s true, authentic love there.”
Concerning the women, he stated that intimacy can sometimes lead to problems with his co-parenting relationships. “Some of the women that I’m involved with deal with it better than others,” he said. “I think they’re all secure in themselves to even have to deal with a person like me.”
