Nick Cannon buys new secluded house for kids

Nick Cannon is reportedly paying $11,000 a month for a New Jersey estate to keep his twins away from the public eye.

The 'America's Got Talent' host, 34, has snapped up the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home, which is located just one hour away from New York City, because he wants three-year-old Moroccan and Monroe to grow up out of the limelight following his difficult split from their mother Mariah Carey last year.

According to gossip website, the hunky presenter - who has a net worth of over $20 million - is currently renting the secluded home in Saddle River neighborhood, but is hoping to buy it for $3 million in the near future if the location works out well.

A source told the online publication: "Nick's mom will help him decorate and the house will not have Mariah's ornate touches."

Moroccan and Monroe will be dividing their time between Nick and Mariah, who will be kicking off her Las Vegas residency at the Caesars Palace on May 6.

Nick, who filed for divorce from Mariah in December following their split last summer after six years of marriage, always makes time for his children and tries to connect with them every morning.

He said previously: "Family is the number one priority. It's always making sure that you make that connection first.

"Just even where I move or the places where my days start has to be starting with the kids first."

Meanwhile, the comedian recently started dating Nicole Murphy, but previously insisted he would never say anything negative about Mariah and hopes they can both move forward.
