On Monday, Cannon shared a photo of him standing next to a vending machine that didn’t contain your standard fare of snacks and beverages, but condoms.
“Looks like somebody just sent me an early Valentine’s Day gift!! Vending Machine full of Magnums,” Cannon wrote.
A few hours later, Hart reposted the same image, writing, “I see u got my gift @nickcannon ….GOTCHA BITCH!!!!!! ….Now u don’t have an excuse because the condoms are free #PrankWars.” Hart’s caption—and the gesture as a whole—appears to be a nod to Cannon’s inability to stop impregnating women.
Announcing at the end of January that he’s expecting his eighth child—this one with Bre Tiesi—Cannon said chatter about his parenting decisions “definitely affects me” and that he’s “not impervious to, you know, hearing and reading what people say about me.” He subsequently spoke on how Tiesi’s pregnancy inspired his “celibacy journey.”
Hart, meanwhile, has four children and joked in 2021 that he probably needs to stop.
Prank-wise, in September, Cannon took a photo of his face and wrapped Hart’s private jet in it. He shared a clip of Hart seeing his PJ for the first time, with the giant poster promoting Nick’s self-titled talk show.
Besides the comedians’ prank wars and Cannon’s growing family, the host/actor/rapper recently commented on his beef with Eminem. According to HotNewHipHop, Cannon told T.I. on his expediTIously podcast that feuding with Em wasn’t really his intention.
“I was a little overzealous,” Cannon said. “I was a little heavy-handed. I’m going to say a couple of things. First of all, I love Eminem as an artist. Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP…those are some of my favorite albums. But I think there was a lot that went on there. One, the whole goal [during the 2019 feud] was to get him to come on Wild ’N Out and acknowledge it. That’d be the greatest show ever.”
On his 2009 track “Bagpipes From Baghdad,” Em dissed Mariah Carey, who was married to Cannon at the time. Nick said Marshall disrespecting Carey troubled him, telling Tip, “I was really upset about what he had said about my wife at the time.”
