Nick Cannon and his baby mama Abby De La Rosa have welcomed baby number eleven but reports are already estimating that he is facing to pay more than $3 million (R51 722820,00) in annual child support grant.

Hollywood Unlocked reports that the 42-year-old is considered a “high-income earner” in California.

A California practicing family law attorney Goldie Schon told The Sun just how costly things could end up getting for Nick, particularly as he continues to have more kids.

The attorney says, “When you have somebody like Nick Cannon, who’s an extremely high-income earner, the courts in California have the right to deviate from the typical child support guidelines”.

“If he is taking home somewhere upward of $5 million a year, you have to look at what it would take to have the children kept in the lifestyle of both parents…Dad is clearly a public figure and makes a substantial income. The lifestyle has to be the same with mom as it is with dad,” she says.

She also estimates that Nick’s newest addition will likely cost him around $40,000 a month in child support to keep LaNisha and their newborn daughter Onyx in the lifestyle of both parents.

The publication adds that when it comes to Abby De La Rose, Goldie said that since she already has 1-year-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, giving birth to her third child with the TV host could potentially kick her yearly child support to astronomical levels matching those of fellow baby mama Brittany.

“Abby was probably getting between $600,000 and $750,000 a year from him just in child support, then plus things he’s probably also paying for like school or child care- all of those extras…You add her third child in and that likely kicks her to making close to a cool million a year,” Goldie estimates.

The legal expert said that having another child with Abby and Brittany is cheaper than having one with a new baby mama due to the California calculations.

“It’s almost like he’s getting he’s getting a discount with Abby and Brittany having a third child,” Goldie said.
