Is Nick Cannon Still Dating Bre Tiesi?
Since 2020, Nick Cannon’s relationship seems more challenging to keep up with than the Kardashians, which should have told you something!
The American TV personality has made several announcements of the birth of their children, some even only months apart, thus making people question the nature of his romantic relationships.
According to Atlanta Black Star, Nick is pursuing several open relationships with gorgeous ladies. However, one baby mama that is often spotted with Nick recently is Bre Tiesi!
In March 2022, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together, while for Nick, the child would be his eighth child. This news was shocking, not because Nick had fathered yet another child, but because it took them years to expand their family despite being linked for years.
In an interview with the Know for Sure podcast, Bre confirmed that while Nick and she do their best to raise their son, Legendary Cannon, they’re not in a monogamous relationship!
“This is our relationship, and what you do outside of that is what you do outside of that,” she explained.
“Everything is respectful. Everything is honest,” she continued.

Fortunately, their feud didn’t seem to last long, as a mere couple of days later LaNisha posted another Instagram story, showing a video of Nick and Onyx while they took her to her first class!
