Mariah Carey was feeling emotion when her two young kids acquired cell phones.
The pop diva, 52, was reportedly left fuming when her ex-husband Nick Cannon, 41, bought the devices for their twins Moroccan and Monroe, 10, earlier this year.
Cannon claimed Carey didn’t want their children to have the smartphones for fear that they might Google her or find out about their half-siblings on the internet.
“My oldest twins Roc and Roe wanted a cellphone at [age] 8” Cannon revealed during a preview clip for an upcoming episode of his “Nick Cannon” talk show.
“They have iPads and I was all for it but Mariah was like, ‘Uh uh they aren’t going to be Googling us. Learning about all their new brothers and sisters, no we aren’t playing.’”
Cannon has five other children, including four kids born to three different women in the past year alone.
The “Feelin’ Freaky” rapper told his talk show audience: “I respected it at 8 but then we made a deal and said at 10 then they can have it. Is 10 a more reasonable age? Mariah said ‘Uh Uh, no.’”
However, Cannon confessed he went ahead and bought Moroccan and Monroe the cellphones without his ex-wife’s permission.
“I still got them the cellphones for their [10th] birthday,” he declared.
“We had this amazing party with jump jumps, their friends came, it was so amazing. Then it was time to open the gifts, I was like ‘I’m going to leave these right here and tell your mama I’ll be back.’ Mariah is still mad at me till this day.”
He ended the segment by humorously staring into the camera and stating: “Mariah, forgive me!”
While Carey may think her kids are too young to have cellphones, they’re now old enough to be in front of the camera.
Back in July, 10-year-old Monroe made her modeling debut in a new ad for OshKosh B’Gosh.
The back-to-school campaign, called “Today Is Someday,” featured the youngster channeling her famous mom back in the day, wearing overalls and posing up a storm while singing into a hairbrush.
Meanwhile, Cannon says his two kids with Carey may be getting more half-siblings in the future.
He told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year that it may be “God’s plan” that he has more than the seven kids he already has.
“Think about it, you can’t be like, ‘No I’m done.’ Like what if God says, ‘No you not,’” Cannon told the program.
In addition to Moroccan and Monroe, Cannon is father to 4-year-old son Golden and 10-month-old daughter Powerful Queen. He shares both children with Miss Guam 2014 pageant winner Brittany Bell, 33.
Meanwhile, the rapper welcomed twin boys Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with DJ Abby De La Rosa, 29, on June 14 this year.
Then, just nine days later, on June 23, he became the father of his fifth son, Zen, with model Alyssa Scott.
