The rapper recently explained the tune to Genius, saying, “I named the song ‘Divorce Papers’ to throw it back in everyone’s face. The media made up a lie that I was holding up the process saying I wouldn’t sign the divorce papers. So I was like, ‘You want divorce papers? Well here you go!’”
He went on to add that the lyric – “My lawyers said ‘don’t say s**t’ – was about the unwanted involvement of “attorneys on both sides.”
“Lawyers always think they control the clients and they cause most of the friction especially since me and my ex get along,” he told Genius.
Cannon, 35, went on to further quash the rumors of a rift between him and Carey, 46, on Sunday, celebrating Father’s Day with his ex and two children, Monroe and Morocco.
“Leaving the Haters in the Wind! LOL They want us to be mad so bad! @MariahCarey but we happier than happy! #HappyFathersDay,” he captioned one family group shot.
He also shared a sweet photo of his daughter, Monroe, holding up some custom artwork, writing, “Gift time! My kids are awesome!!! #HappyFathersDay.”
In another post, the proud dad posed with his two adorable kiddos, writing, “Sky Zone and Ice Cream! Best Fathers Day Ever!! Photo credit @mariahcarey.”
