Following their divorce in 2014, Carey and Cannon agreed to have joint custody of their kids and co-parent them. However, the "Always Be My Baby" star is reportedly going to fight for full custody now. Per RadarOnline, a source close to the star revealed that Carey usually takes care of the kids and is more available than her ex-husband.

"Monroe and Moroccan are usually with Mariah anyway. Nick doesn't see much of them," the source said. The actor is mostly occupied with work and tries his best to see them. However, it is barely enough, and the iconic singer wants to make sure that he can't go in and out of their lives as he pleases while claiming to be an available father.
