Nick Cannon announced that his 5 month old son, Zen, died from brain cancer over the weekend.
Nick said that Zen had a cough that he wanted to get checked out. He also had what Nick described as a nice-sized head – or “a Cannon head.” He and Alyssa Scott didn’t think anything of it. They took him in for what they thought would be a routine checkup when he was two months old. They found out his youngest had been building up fluid in his brain that turned out to be a malignant tumor.
Even though Zen underwent surgery to have a shunt put in to drain the fluid, his health took a turn close to Thanksgiving. Nick tearfully revealed that he held the child for the last time on Sunday. “You can’t heal until you feel,” he told the audience, adding that he’s at work so soon after because it serves as a distraction.
