His most profiled relationship was with Mariah Carey. Nick and Mariah were married from 2008 to 2014 and had two children, Monroe and Moroccan Scott. He is presently single and resides in New Jersey.
Nick’s career in stand-up comedy began when he performed on his father’s local cable access program. Upon graduation, Nick earned a gig as a warm-up comedian for Nickelodeon’s studio audience in Los Angeles. He, however, stepped away from comedy and formed a rap group called “Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad” and would open for concerts for Will Smith and Montell Jordan. Nick would experience immense success in music by recording hit songs and opening his own record labels.
Nick was given various hosting gigs for an array of television shows and live events, such as MTV’s “Wild N Out,” Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest” and NBC’s “Caught on Camera.” Nick would become one of the judges on the show “America’s Got Talent.” He also entered the world of business by becoming chairman of TeenNick for Nickelodeon and was named Chief Creative Officer for Radioshack.
He returned to the comedy world in 2010 by announcing he would perform a comedy tour. He also recorded his first stand-up comedy special called “Mr. Showbiz.”
Since 2011, Nick has been actively involved in philanthropy. In 2011, he filmed a public service announcement for the Do Something initiative that urges teens to participate in their communities. He also became the spokesperson for the National Association of Letter Carriers’ yearly national food drive.
Throughout his career, Nick has landed parts in a large number of motion pictures, such as “Men in Black II,” “Shall We Dance?,” “School Dance” and “Chi-Raq.”
We estimate that Nick Cannon’s net worth is $50 million (2016).
So how much is $50 million really?
$50 million could buy you Mariah Carey’s private estate on Windermere Island in The Bahamas. $40 million could also buy you Nick’s private estate in New Jersey – you could spend your nights with the extra money buying all of Nick’s music and listening to it.
