Upon reading the news that entertainment mogul Nick Cannon is expecting yet another baby with another woman, Twitter was set ablaze with jokes about his virility and child count. The timing is unusual enough for people who are openly wondering if he’s at the head of a new sex cult.

Wild N’ Out model Alyssa Scott uploaded a Father’s Day post on her Instagram Stories, apparently confirming that she’s expecting a baby boy with Cannon. The child will be his seventh child and his fourth baby in a year. 

According to, Scott wrote in the comments of a post that she was 34 weeks along. In another Instagram post from last week, she said she’s in “the final days” of her pregnancy.

Cannon welcomed twin sons, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with DJ Abby De La Rosa just a week ago, on June 14. Daughter Powerful Queen was born in December with Brittany Bell. Bell and Cannon also share a 4-year-old son Golden “Sagon.” More famously, he has 10-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 51, to whom he was married for eight years.

Of course, when news broke, Twitter had the memes ready.

Even President Joe Biden made it into the mix.

Some women suggested Nick Cannon is the prime example of why men also need birth control.

The most interesting (and outrageous) theory was that Nick Cannon is the ringleader of a sex cult.

@IndieBombDotCom tweeted, along with Cannon’s answer to a question related to R. Kelly’s life behind closed doors: “Nick cannon definitely has a cult.”

@YumekoAsagiri brought up a Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode guest-starring John Stamos as a grossly narcissistic reproductive abuser, seemingly comparing it to Cannon’s story.

Others remembered the episode as well, and jokingly compared it to Cannon:

@awwjeezmike: “Nick cannon is really trying to be like John Stamos from svu.”

All speculation aside, @CerromeRussell said it best, “Nick Cannon don’t pull out of nothing but the driveway.”
