"It's nothing but love," Cole said of her co-parenting relationship with Cannon and his presence in 14-month-old daughter Onyx's life
LaNisha Cole is standing up for her blended family.
The photographer mom, 40, shared some thoughts on her Instagram Story on Thursday to address comments that insinuate she is attempting to strain daughter Onyx Ice's relationship with her father, Nick Cannon, and instead fostering Onyx's relationship with her boyfriend Brian Paul Kuba.
Responding to a comment accusing her of trying to "turn [Onyx] against her real dad because he is a good man," Cole celebrated that Onyx, 13 months, has the love of both men in her life.
"She has her relationship with her Father which he himself speaks on. HE absolutely loves ALL of his children which is evident," she wrote. "I go out of my way to make sure that he has his time with her and I would never speak negatively about him or make Onyx feel anything other than love for her Dad."
"It's nothing but love on the days he comes to pick her up," she continued. "Please stay off my page and leave black women alone."
In a follow-up story, Cole emphasizes that her daughter has been "surrounded by so much love, even before she entered the world."

Sharing her hope that other families have that same kind of love, she explained that she responded to that commenter becaues "I did feel the need to clarify that she has her Dad in her life AND her Baba Bee @brianpaulkuba."
"This is our new normal and it's the reality for a lot of people," Cole noted. "I love reading your messages about how you all had someone step up in your lives and how positively it impacted you as a kid and now adults."
She concluded, "I'm only doing the best i can to raise a happy and healthy daughter. My page shows how blessed she is and how much I love and adore her. She's everything."
On an episode of The Jason Lee Podcast in May, Cannon, 43, revealed that out of all of his children, Onyx is "probably the child that I spend the most time with."
"I'm with her at least three times a week, for the full day. But I don't put that out there in the media, social media [because] it's not for them," the Masked Singer host leveled.
Cannon was proud to report, "LaNisha and I have a super strong understanding and our co-parenting operation is so solid."
He went on to explain that the two abide by a schedule that works for them.
"If you see me on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, my daughter is right next to me, whether I'm on set," he said of Onyx.
"I got a nursery in my office. I'm literally gonna leave here to make sure that I can spend the most time with her — not against all my other kids because all my other kids, they're in school, they're babies, as well as Onyx — but the fact that I appreciate that LaNisha gives me the respect enough to allow me to have, really, as equal amount of time as she does."
Cannon is a father of 12 and shares twins Monroe and Moroccan, 12, with ex Mariah Carey, whom he was married to from 2008 to 2016. He is also a father to sons Golden Sagon, 6, and Rise Messiah Cannon, 13 months, and daughter Powerful Queen, 2½, with Brittany Bell.
Cannon shares twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 2, and daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, 10 months, with Abby De La Rosa; son Legendary Love, 14 months, with Bre Tiesi. Additionally, he's dad to two children with Alyssa Scott: son Zen — who died at 5 months old in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer — and daughter Halo Marie, 11 months.
