The media mogul seemed like a convincingly capable father of 12 until this week when Nick’s father Abraham adventures got him in trouble due to him forgetting to name one of his children in a recent interview.

The child’s mother, LaNisha, responded to him missing the name of their daughter, Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, his only child that is unambiguously Black on both sides.

If Nick thought Black women were “upset” with him before, they’re really on his a** now.

Earlier this week, Nick appeared on the Howard Stern Show to promote his new morning show with baby mama Abby De La Rosa. Abby is the mother of their twin boys Zion and Zillion, and their daughter Beautiful Zeppelin.

However, the only baby everyone’s talking about is the one Nick left out when quizzed on their names.

“I can name all… Of course! Can’t you name all of your kids?” he confidently quipped in the now-viral clip.

Nick’s turban must’ve been tied too tight because he somehow didn’t list Onyx. Internet skeptics already questioned his ability to juggle a dozen kids in six households and the fact that he remembered the other 11 biracial babies only made them roast Nick even harder.

So, what did LaNisha Cole have to say about Nick Cannon forgetting their daughter Onyx? Find out after the jump!

LaNisha Cole has been one of Nick’s more low-key and private co-parents, but she spoke out about the viral moment of Nick forgetting their daughter. “I know that God’s got me. And I’ve got Onyx,” wrote Cole.

“It’s not normal to have your life play out in front of an audience but this is the age we live in. That being said…no person’s path is linear,” wrote the model in her InstaStory.

“There’s going to be blind curves, peaks, valleys, and sometimes we make wrong turns or run into dead ends. Simply correct course and get back on your forward moving path,” she added.

“I pray every day for strength, guidance, and peace. Regardless of where I’m at on my path I know that God’s got me. And I’ve got Onyx.

To all the Moms out there… take care of your heart with the same love and patience you have for your babies. It’s not always easy but we were built for this.”

Despite LaNisha offering a classy response to the situation, she caught several strays for even becoming baby mama number five to the fertile turbanator.

Others speculated that LaNisha didn’t slip his mind because of her beautiful brown skin, but because she’s moved on with a new man.

Nick already revealed that he doesn’t give the mothers of his children a monthly allowance, providing based on what they need, and with her new boo Brian Paul Kuba, maybe there’s not much LaNisha needs from Nick these days.

Another Twitter user pointed out that Nick didn’t even hop over to see Onyx as the Easter Bunny like he did for Bre Tiesi. Maybe LaNisha is still unbothered by what she called the “fake IG photo op love.”

With beef like this simmering, it’s no surprise he’s a controversial figure to some Black women.

Check out why Nick thinks “Black women are really upset” with him after the flip.

In another interview this week, Nick reflected on the “love-hate” Black women seem to have with him. On Way Up With Angela Yee, he said he knows that many of the comments online are definitely not on his side.

“I feel like Black women are really upset with me for some reason. And, specifically, that group, and I love them,” Nick said.

When asked if they’re really upset with him, he added that “it’s that love-hate thing. It’s love-hate because they be on me, they on me so heavy.”


According to Nick, he thinks Black women dubbed him “one of the good ones” but now think otherwise despite him being “corny.”

Let me say this, a certain demographic, certain age group because older Black women love me. My mama them, grandmas, aunties… ‘Ah, he just like your daddy!’ Nick added.

“You know what I mean?… Like, I get that energy from the elder statesmen, but the young girls is like… I think they expect more from me.”

“So that’s where that comes from, it’s like, ‘Oh, we thought you was one of the good ones… Even the corny ones is crazy!’ You know what I mean? I get that in my comments,” he continued.
