Nick Cannon, American rapper, actor and comedian, announced Tuesday the death of his youngest son Zen only five months old, who passed away after suffering from hydrocephalus, a disorder that involves excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within the skull.

The artist also noted that he had decided spend last weekend in california (USA) together with his son to be able to share the last moments of your life.
“This weekend, I made a good effort to spend the best quality time with Zen“Cannon told his viewers. The rapper said that after spending time with the boy and his mother, Alyssa Scott, he had to return to New York to record the next show, although on the way to the airport he received a phone call that did return. However, she couldn’t hold back the tears as she remembered the moment she held her son for the last time.

“The process sped up. In the end, it turned out to be brain cancer. The tumor started to grow much faster,” Cannon said.
