Nick Cannon 'hates' hearing about his children having fun without him

Nick Cannon "hates" hearing about his children having fun without him.

The 35-year-old rapper - who split from Mariah Carey in August 2014 and has reportedly refused to sign the paperwork to make their divorce official - has released a freestyle song called 'Divorce Papers', which details his growing fears his twin children Monroe and Moroccan, both five - who he had with the 'Hero' hitmaker - will "doubt" him.

In the track, which was reported on E! Online, the 'America's Got Talent' host raps: "When y'all need help/ y'all call me/ When I need help, y'all call TMZ/ and y'all believe everything that you see.

"We single now but we really need to think about is how a child deals/ how a child feels/ because we got two and they brilliant for real/ resilient for real.

"Ima be honest/ sometimes I hate to hear you're on the other line having fun without me/ I wonder if my son will ever doubt me/ What's love I don't care about it I just want my kids to be safe."

The father-of-two has revealed he released the rap to vent his frustrations about accusations made against him and not about his relationship with the 46-year-old powerhouse, with who he claims he has maintained a good relationship with.

Speaking to Karen Civil website, he explained: "My purpose for creating this 'Divorce Papers' freestyle was not to feed the tabloid chatter, or even to diffuse it. This was strictly a creative way for me to express my frustrations with the media, the naysayers, myself and ultimately with the voices in my head.

"As Father's Day approaches this weekend, I've been reflecting quite a bit on my life as a father and how I want to be the best one I can be.

"My ex and I are in a great place and are diligently moving things along so we both can continue to be happy ... I sincerely hope the media doesn't once again try to manipulate my words or my purpose for releasing this song. As the world knows, I am an open book and I'm proud of that. When it comes to expressing myself, I take the fearless approach and that's what I chose to do here."

However, the television personality was reluctant to unveil the track.

He said: "I've been sitting on the song for almost a week now because I was really torn on whether or not I should release it."
