Scott shared the family photos amid comments made by Selling Sunset real estate agent Bre Tiesi, 32 — with whom Cannon shares 5-month-old son Legendary Love — about Cannon's child support.
In an episode of Selling Sunset, Tiesi chats with costar Amanza Smith about her relationship with Cannon. As they talk, Smith asks Tiesi if it's true that someone doesn't have to pay child support after having 10 children.
"That's true," Tiesi responds as the pair share cocktails in a picturesque rooftop setting. "The way it works is like, after 10, the court can basically say he can't afford to pay child support. Or because he is who he is, they could say, 'We know you can afford X amount for each household.'"
"That explains a lot, I guess," Amanza responds in a confessional interview. "I'd keep going too."
After the episode aired, Tiesi's lawyer Neama Rahmani clarified the reality star's comments in a statement to PEOPLE. "Nick, or any father, is obligated to pay child support under California law regardless of the number of children he has," Rahmani said.
"Courts consider the parents' income, the cost of child care, and the amount of time the child spends with each parent," he continued. "Judges do not cap child support after a certain number of kids."
Appearing on Jason Lee's podcast earlier this month, The Daily Cannon host was asked about how he protects his assets in co-parenting with the moms of his kids.
"I don't care about that stuff. I believe true currency is your energy. I wish I could make a contract, 'You cannot take this much of my energy when you leave,' " he shared.
When it comes to financially supporting his kids, Cannon explained he's "not in the child support system that is run by the government."
"My money is they money, they money is my money. They can have whatever they want, whatever they ask for. My account is their account, and there's a lot in there, so we ain't gon' run out," he leveled.
