In March, Cannon also addressed the reports that he has failed to pay government-stipulated child support. The headlines on the issue were because he'd said during an interview that he aims to give out more than the government stipulation.

He said, "No offense to anyone within the system, but that system is set up by the government to help monitor how you care for your children. I want to give everything to my children so that I would give above and beyond. What's mine is theirs."

In November, just before the birth of his 12th child, The Sun reported that Cannon was paying an estimated $3 million in child support. He quickly responded to the article, saying the actual amount is "much more" than just $3 million.
