Mariah Carey Reacts to Nick Cannon's Idea That Her Other Children Are Her 'Step' Siblings

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon once shared a union in marriage and have two children together, but apparently, their children’s connection to Cannon’s larger family ends there. At least, that’s what Mariah Carey indicated in a recent interview, as she seemingly clapped back at the idea Nick Cannon’s other kids are ‘step’Siblings with their children. 

Recently, the pop singer spoke to ETInformation about her special event Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues on Apple TV+, and the topic shifted to Mariah Carey’s ex-Nick Cannon and his increasingly growing family. Kevin Frazier wanted to know if any stepbrothers or stepsisters would celebrate Christmas like she does. Carey quickly rebuffed the question.

Is this step? I don’t think it’s step if you’re not married to the person. I don’t know about that. That’s a different–that’s a different interview for you.

The interview quickly shifted, so there wasn’t much time for a follow-up to really drill down on what Mariah Carey meant. It seemed pretty clear Carey was not interested in the line of questioning and possibly the idea that she and Nick Cannon’s kids share a sibling-oriented connection with her ex’s other children.

Another possibility is that Mariah Carey merely pointed out that Nick Cannon’s children They can also be married outside of marriage.They are not her children and therefore cannot be her stepchildren. That’s technically correct, though the fact Carey snapped about it and shot down the line of questioning made it feel like a sensitive subject. The moment is shown below.

Other celebrities are availableOr Air your grievances during interviews, so it’s not a shock she’d open up here.
