NEWARK, NJ - AUGUST 26: Stephanie Mills attends the Black Girls Rock! 2018 Red Carpet at NJPAC on August 26, 2018 in Newark, New Jersey.

Singer Stephanie Mills has a message for Nick Cannon regarding his support of Kanye West’s presidential campaign. In the four-minute and thirteen seconds video, Mill said, “First, I know that Kanye is suffering mentally. I know that he is swinging high and low, and I really pray and hope that he gets help.”

“But I must say that I’m disappointed because if he’s trying to help our community by running for president. It’s not helping our community. He’s not qualified to be president. Neither is the person that is in the White House at this time. Kanye is a distraction.”

“And we’re living in some really trying times where don’t need distractions. What we need is for Kanye to get help, get on medication, see a therapist, and to get help,” Mills continued.

“Nick Cannon, now you. I don’t understand because I saw you at Pop’s when he gave his speech and his talk in Chicago not long ago. And then for you to come out and do what you did, like supporting Kanye. What is that? What is that? I don’t understand it. Kanye is being paid to do what he is doing.”

“Now, are we to believe that you are also being paid to be a distraction? You guys are acting like little boys in a sandbox with toys. But being that you’re acting like that, as a mother, I would like to say take your toys, go home and sit down and get help. Get therapy. Nick, you should know better because you’ve learned and listened to the teachings. You should know better! Because I just saw you,” Mills said while pointing her finger.

“We have no time for you two to be out here to be out acting like little paid slaves. I said it.” “I wish everybody well…don’t be fearful. Fear is your worst enemy. Just trust that God is the best knower,” the “Feel the Fire” singer concluded.”I send everyone love, peace. And we’re going to get through this. And on the other side this it’s going to be very good. I’m optimistic about it. And I have no fear.”
