King: How many children do you have?

Cannon: Two. Twins, five years old.

King: Boy and a girl?

Cannon: Boy and a girl.Roc and Roe. King: Roc and Roe, who is their mother?

Cannon: Mariah Carey is their mother.

King: Why did you, you were so in love last time I spoke with you and I love Mariah.

Cannon: We all love Mariah. And she's outstanding, and you know how some of these things are just, they don't work out in the way that you thought they were going to work out and it was probably best for our family to remain a family first and foremost.

King: Are you friendly?

Cannon: 100%, I mean we speak every day, you know we talk about the children's schooling and, you know, their behavior.

King: Are they in LA?

Cannon: Right now they're on vacation, you know, they're feeling the sun and on a yacht in Europe somewhere, but they'll be back in a couple of days.

King: What's it like having twins?

Cannon: Oh man, it's a handful. We spend a lot of time in Chuck E. Cheese, but they're all over the place, but they have the most amazing personalities and I know everyone says

this about their children, but I really feel like my my kids are geniuses.

King: You get to see them a lot?

Cannon: Absolutely. I mean it's interesting, I always say it's the time a father gets to spend with his kidswhen they're not with the mom is called visitation, but that's not the

case with me, like to me, you know, I'm there every day.

King: How difficult was it for you to have a public breakup?

Cannon: It wasn't thatdifficult. I mean....

King: It wasn't scandal... it wasn't...

Cannon: Yeah, because it didn't have anything to do thatwas salacious.There was no bad blood whatsoever. Unfortunately, the thing that became the most difficult was the media just trying to find stuff and fabricate things, but even that didn't bother me because they do that every day, but if that ever starts to actually get into the relationship that can then become a

problem. But you know Mariah and I were such on the same page that we almost really laughed at what everyone thought the problem was or the issue was, because we were super solid.

King: They're wrong a lot, aren't they? Cannon: They're wrong the majority of the time, but you know, it's sad because, you know,

perception is reality in our world and all you need is a big headline.I was like just because it's

loud doesn't mean it's right, but you know, you get past. That's the beauty of, you know, this

ADD generation and all of this constant information being thrown at us, they forget about it the next day.
