It is unknown if he will be using the character to make a mixtape or album.

 personal life
Cannon met actress/singer Christina Milian on the set of their film, Love Don't Cost a Thing, in 2003, and they began dating. After being together for two and a half years, Milian ended her relationship with Cannon in 2005 when she found out he was cheating on her. Cannon revealed that he refused to stay faithful to Milian because their relationship was becoming too much like a "Christian romance". When Cannon married Mariah Carey on April 30, 2008, Milian said, "regardless of what I felt in the past at the time, I actually forgive him and I'm very much over that".

Cannon began dating Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks in February 2007. and just six weeks later, on May 7, 2007, Cannon proposed to Ebanks via the Times Square jumbotron. The couple called off their engagement five months later in October 2007.

With no prior announcement on April 30, 2008, Cannon married Mariah Carey at her private estate on Windermere Island in The Bahamas after just six weeks of dating. Cannon and Carey had only just met in mid March 2008 to discuss the video treatmeant for her second single "Bye Bye". On October 28, 2010 Carey confirmed that she and Cannon were expecting their first child. She claims she conceived naturally. Carey revealed that she had been pregnant shortly after her wedding during the time of the 2008 World Music Awards, but that she miscarried, so Carey and Cannon decided to keep the matter private. On April 30, 2011, the couple's third wedding anniversary, Carey gave birth to fraternal twins. The daughter is named Monroe Cannon , the son Moroccan Scott Cannon (because Cannon proposed to Carey in her Moroccan-style room; Scott is Cannon's middle name and his grandmother's maiden name; Monroe doesn't have a middle name as Mariah herself doesn't have one).
In January 2012, Nick Cannon was hospitalised after suffering from mild kidney failure.”
