Actor and talk show host,Nick Cannon revealed on his show ,The Nick Cannon show that his seventh son,Zen who he shared with Alyssa Scott died of a brain tumor. He said:
“I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out,” he explained. “He had this interesting breathing and by the time he was two months I noticed he had this nice sized head too — a Cannon head. We didn’t think anything of it. But I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing. We thought it would be routine.”
“Thanksgiving we had an interesting turn,” Nick tearfully said. “And things just sped up.”
“The tumor began to grow a lot faster. And so we knew that time was…”
“This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen.
“We woke up on Sunday and I was just… I felt like I wanted to go to the water, close to the ocean. So we got a chance to go to the ocean.
“And usually on Sundays, I kind of handle everything I have to handle with the family and fly back to New York so I can be here for you all.
“But I wanted to make sure I had the sun to rise and hold my son. And… Having the last… holding my son the last time…” Dad Nick cried as the audience could be heard in shock.
He added: “It was a beautiful setting and to spend that whole day was interesting because even when I was holding my son I was still preparing my day as it normally went – to come back and come here. I didn’t know what it was gonna be but I just… But even by the time I got in the car and was headed to the airport I had to turn around.”
“I turned around and not only did we get to see the sun rise, but we got to see the sunsunsetoo. And I didn’t know how I was gonna handle today but I just wanted to grieve with my family,” gesturing to the audience who clapped.
This is really sad. Take heart Nick, May his gentle soul rest in peace.
