Nick Cannon Releases Statement With “Divorce Papers”

Despite reports that he wouldn’t sign off to finalize his divorce, we really didn’t think Nick Cannon was still tripping over Mariah Carey… and that’s pretty much what he says too, although he just dropped a freestyle that definitely shows he has love for his estranged wife.

Check out the freestyle below, along with a lengthy statement from Cannon via KarenCivil:

My purpose for creating this “Divorce Papers” freestyle was not to feed the tabloid chatter, or even to diffuse it. This was strictly a creative way for me to express my frustrations with the media, the naysayers, myself and ultimately with the voices in my head. One late night in my studio, after hearing the recent accusations against me and my character, I turned on my drum machine, found this amazing Willie Hutch sample, looped it, and went into the booth and let it all out. It felt great!

I’ve been sitting on the song for almost a week now because I was really torn on whether or not I should release it. The last thing I would ever want to do is add fuel to the fire, especially a fire that was fabricated by the press. But, ultimately I felt it was necessary to clear the air and set the record straight once and for all.

My Ex and I are in a great place and are diligently moving things along so we both can continue to be happy. 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 song. As the world knows, I am an open book and I’m proud of that. When it comes to expressing myself, I take the fearless approach and that’s what I chose to do here.

As Father’s Day approaches this weekend, I’ve been reflecting quite a bit on my life as a father and how I want to be the best one I can be, the way my father figures were to me. So with that said, I just ask that the public continues to respect our process and remain patient and loving as me and my family aim for happiness.

What did you think of the music and the statement? We wonder if anyone else is gonna have something to say about him name-dropping Kim.

In the meantime, Mariah has been busy making wedding plans. Hit the flip to find out the latest details not that.
